Our Training Programs
Aurora is the only civilian operated training facility in the world that offers such a wide variety of space training programs. These programs are available to the general public for the first time. No longer do you have to join NASA or travel to Russia to participate in astronaut training.
What type of person participates in these types of training regimes? Space tourism has existed since 2001 and is set to bring space travel to the general public in the next couple of years. All of these potential astronauts will have to undergo training to prepare them for the rigors of space travel. They will have to experience physical and academic training so that they can safely enjoy and understand what space travel is all about. Many others will train with us simply because they enjoy the challenge and want to learn more. We also contract with space companies that need to train their astronaut pilots and astronaut participants for their own space programs.
We have many packages to train everyone according to their needs. Individual, corporate, media, research–we have a record of offering safe and professional services to all. One of our more extended programs is a two day intensive course that includes academic, physical, and flight training. Applicants receive a medical screening and certification by a board-certified physician who is on staff at Aurora. This process is not to try and disqualify people, but to help them undergo the training and potential future spaceflight safely and comfortably. We can also accommodate those wishing to do only one or two activities.
Academic teaching includes physiologic aspects of space travel, orbital and suborbital physics, adaptation to high “g” and “zero g” environments and pre-flight briefings.

At the conclusion of your training, you will receive a certificate pre-qualifying you for suborbital spaceflight. You will have learned much about space flight and about your limits, and will probably have the best time you’ve ever experienced. Aurora will operate a suborbital space vehicle within the next 2-3 years when they become available, so whether you choose to fly with us or another provider, you will be ready when the opportunity arrives.
