A stupid question for RAS members... Assuming you have the financial resources could you legally fly the SpaceShipOne with a Private Pilot Glider with a Motor glider endorsement? Regards, Oscar. P.S. -- The Space/Aircraft has an "N"umber.

How Reliable Is Your Panel? by Chip Bearden
(from a related thread) It worked fine but I could hear it on the radio. Puting the switch in a metal box and grounding the box should help but it seems silly to me since the Volkslogger and SN-10 both can log the flight and are both very reliable. Of course the SN-10 log can't be used...
