FAA APPROVAL

The NASTAR Center

On April 7, 2010, George Nield, Associate Administrator for the FAA Office of Commercial Space Transportation officially declared ETC’s NASTAR Center as the first to ever receive FAA Safety Approval designation for our Space Training Programs featuring the STS-400 Space Training Simulator.
 
The NASTAR Center’s Safety Approval is significant. It benefits the entire Commercial Space Industry by having a pre-approved program to that meets the Crew Qualification and Training Requirements rather than spending the time and cost involved in doing it themselves. It also paves the way for other organizations in obtaining launch license approvals quicker. The NASTAR Center’s Safety Approval Order (SA-10-001) states, “NASTAR may offer the STS-400 to a prospective launch operator to meet the applicable components of the Crew Qualification and Training Requirements of 14 CFR § 460.5.” Requirements can be viewed here. The NASTAR Center FAA Safety Approval is good for five years
 
The NASTAR Center FAA Safety Approval approves manned profiles that are within the following parameters:
 
Up to 12 Gz and 8 Gx
Onset rates up to +/- 8 G per second
