Rocket Racing Association is the parent owner of the Rocket Racing League, whose vision is to create a piloted, rocket-powered aircraft racing league using a closed-circuit virtual air racetrack visible to pilots on 3D helmet displays and visible to live audiences and television viewers using virtual overlays on handheld devices and television monitors. The first “Mark I X-Racer” prototype flew in August 2008 at the 2008 Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) AirVenture in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Later, two “Mark III X-Racer” prototypes flew in tandem in April 2010 at the 2010 Tulsa Air Show in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Rocket Racing Association extends the early Rocket Racing League success to next-generation Rocket Racers for air show demonstrations leading toward the first phase of “drag race to space” competitions followed by the second phase of closed-circuit virtual raceway competitions. Rocket Racing Association will also conduct a series of “back seat rides” for adventure seekers, students, private astronaut training, zero gravity payloads and experiments, and media outreach.
