Sep 9th 2012 10:32PM Harris Effron needs to do some homework. These will not be orbital flights. They will be lobs to 62 miles altitude providing about 5 minutes of weightlessness. This altitude is generally agreed to be where "space" begins and those who venture there are called "astronauts".
Dec 31st 2008 11:42AM 98% of the airports in the US don't even have a "control" tower installed. And we land passenger filled airliners at them every day. Any pilot who would delay landing or takeoff simply because the tower was unmanned shouldn't be in the left seat in the first place.
