Per Wimmer successfully completes the first part of the Virgin Galactic training program. This part included two days of centrifuge simulations with forces up to 6 Gx and 3 Gz at the NASTAR training facility outside Philadelphia, USA. A exact simulation profile for SpaceShipTwo was also successfully completed. Ahead of this session, Per had to undergo extensive medical checks at the London Bridge Hospital and came out with a “clean bill of health.”
