SPACEFLIGHT
TRAINING Programs

The NASTAR Center offers a wide variety of human spaceflight training options ranging from Orbital and Suborbital spaceflight training programs; to advanced courses which include space physiology, high G loading in multi-axes, high altitude and decompression, and multi-axis accelerations. Each course is offered as an initial training course or a refresher training course. The NASTAR Center is the first FAA-Approved center able to meet Crew Qualification and Training Requirements (14 CFR Part 460.5) (FAA Certificate SA 10-001) for commercial human spaceflight.

At the NASTAR Center, the crew underwent centrifuge training to prepare for the various dynamic situations encountered during spaceflight — including launch, reentry, ocean splashdown, and a potential in-flight abort scenario. These centrifuge profiles were modeled by SpaceX after previous Crew Dragon missions to closely replicate the g-forces the crew will experience during their trip to space.
