Fly with Us

Ready to become an astronaut?

Virgin Galactic’s global community of Future Astronauts is unique; a wonderfully diverse group of pioneering individuals who have become connected on many levels through membership of the Virgin Galactic family. All share a passion for personal space flight and have experienced first-hand the excitement and opportunities that come from being at the vanguard of an incredible new industry.

We are happy to receive applications from individuals who share our aims of opening space to all and will add to the diversity and value of the group overall. The process requires completion and submission of the Virgin Galactic Future Astronaut Application Form which you can click through to at the bottom of this page. There will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions, as well as discuss all aspects of community membership and your spaceflight reservation with our Astronaut Relations Team as your application is processed.

A seat to space with Virgin Galactic and membership of the Future Astronaut community requires the full price of US$250,000 to be paid as an up front deposit. Rights to refunds and other terms will be sent for your consideration as a part of the application process.
