Experience from the ground to space

Spaceworthy, Inc. has the most experience when it comes to AST-400. All of our engineers must have at least 10 years of FAA licensing, permitting, airworthiness and certification experience.

Your project is staffed with specialists of all types: systems engineers, pilots, manufacturing engineers, test engineers and project managers. All this staff was hired to provide you with the expertise that you need to build and fly  your vehicle. Most aircraft engineers - and even their managers - find it hard to learn and keep abreast of the volumes of data necessary to meet the requirements of AST-400. That’s where Spaceworthy, Inc. can be one of your best assets.

Spaceworthy, Inc. is a team of engineers, test pilots, subject matter experts and former FAA employees that all have years of experience in aircraft manufacture, flight test, licensing, permitting, COAs, LOAs and other specialties needed to get your project in the air and licensed in the shortest amount of time.

All of our consultants have engineering degrees; several are graduates of the US Air Force Test Pilot School or the US Navy Test Pilot School. Most, if not all, specialize in experimental and research & development air vehicles - and are familiar with the processes necessary to get your project or program licensed by  the FAA - into the air - and into space. All of our consultants have experience with FAA, NASA, US Air Force, US Navy, US Army, Transport Canada, European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), CAA/JAA/JAR and several other agencies around the world.

Our specialists have worked for Lockheed Martin, Boeing, Northrop Grumman, Scaled Composites,
