Submission + - FAA releases Space Pilot requirements

JCOTTON writes: "The FAA has released the Human Space Flight Requirements for Crew and Space Flight Participants
(Section 3) Pilot Qualifications As proposed in the NPRM, 460.5 requires a pilot of a launch or reentry vehicle to possess and carry an FAA pilot certificate with an instrument rating. The FAA invited public comment on the proposed requirement and received differing views.....in addition to a pilot certificate, the FAA (should) require test pilot credentials or military supersonic experience ....this could be a better choice to operate the vehicle than a pilot.

What does the Slashdot Space Academy think about the minimum qualifications for space pilot?"
