F-104G 'Starfighter' - Fly the astronaut maker!

LOCKHEED F-104G 'STARFIGHTER'

FLY THE ASTRONAUT MAKER!


Starfighter on Shuttle Runway Facility - Kennedy Space Center Starting in 2014/2015 you will be able to board suborbital Rocket Launch Vehicles as the 'Lynx' or Virgin Galactic's 'Space Ship II' to leave our planet and reach up to the highest altitudes.

The purpose is tempting like no other: You will see the earth from the outside, with a look which up to now only a few privileged people have had, some multimillionaires who have travelled to the International Space Station ISS, and a few hundred specialists who since Juri Gagarin have flown to the near-earth orbit or even up to the moon.

The view from high above will take your breath away, when the atmosphere gleams turquoise-blue on the horizon and goes over in thousands of colour nuances to a white that resolves again to brown, gray and blue.

As David Bowie sang it in his 'Space Oddity' in 1968: " Planet Earth is blue and there's nothing I can do!"

Starfighter just after the take off Now it's your time to take the first step: Train for your spaceflight, like the astronauts do since the days of Mercury, Gemini and Apollo!

Graduate from the intensive flight training in the Kennedy Space Center, and take the unique opportunity to start in the legendary Starfighter-astronaut's trainer to the direction of space.

The whole 3-day training program (plus one backup day 4) is 'NASA approved', means you have to meet the same requirements as all the other astronauts who flown with the shuttle or will travel in future with the Orion into space. If you have successfully graduated from this program, you are perfectly prepared for your spaceflight.

Start right now to get ready for your suborbital flight, and become one of the first civilians riding in the legendary F-104 'Astronaut Maker'. In the ejection seat training and in the barochamber, in the knowledge test and in the cockpit of the F-104 you will prove that you have the skills for your personal venture into the universe!

Do you have the right stuff?
