Special Aerospace Services Announces Inaugural Commercial Human Spaceflight Technical Forum

Special Aerospace Services, a leader in aerospace systems engineering solutions, announced today that it will host its first Commercial Human Spaceflight Technical Forum on January 12-14.

The forum is being held in Boulder, Colorado, and will present a focused and concentrated technical agenda created for Commercial Human Spaceflight providers and NASA. Attendees will gain insight to techniques that will be required to successfully achieve the NASA human rating certification and FAA commercial spaceflight licensing.

The forum will host recognized and sought-after subject matter experts, including N. Wayne Hale Jr., Jeffrey Ashby, Timothy Bulk and Dr. Alan Stern.

“We are about to enter an exciting phase in human spaceflight,” said Heather Bulk, CEO of Special Aerospace Services. “And this is the first time that the leading commercial human spaceflight experts have come together to present a comprehensive training program for this rapidly evolving industry.”

“Understanding NASA’s Commercial Human Ratings Plan and how the NASA governance model will complicate a provider’s application is a crucial ingredient for success in this exciting new endeavor,” said N. Wayne Hale Jr., Director of Human Spaceflight Programs for Special Aerospace Services.
