Stratolaunch

Stratolaunch

Stratolaunch is a mobile launch system with three primary components.

WhiteKnightTwo

WhiteKnightTwo

Utilizing an open-architecture design and powered by four Pratt & Whitney turbofans, WhiteKnightTwo provides the high-altitude launch platform for SpaceShipTwo to achieve sub-orbital flight.

Virgin Atlantic GlobalFlyer

Virgin Atlantic GlobalFlyer

This record-breaking, single-place, aviation marvel features two external booms flanking a center pod where the pilot sits, on top of which is the aircraft's powerhouse, a Williams turbofan jet engine.

SpaceShipOne

SpaceShipOne

SpaceShipOne, the first private manned spacecraft, is a three-place, high-altitude research rocket, designed for sub-orbital flights at an altitude of 100 km and powered by a unique hybrid rocket motor.

White Knight

Triumph

The all-composite Triumph, an 8,500 lb, pressurized 8-place business aircraft, was designed around the brand-new, never flown, Williams FJ-44 turbofan engine. The subsequent test program, which consisted of over 100 hours of flight tests, confirmed the performance and operating characteristics of both the airplane and the engines. The Triumph was tested to over 41,000 ft at speeds up to .69 Mach. Pressurization systems were developed, installed, and tested, basic handling qualities and performance tests were conducted, and a significant body of engine tests was performed.

The Triumph is currently on display in the Blackbird Airpark in Palmdale, California.
