The future of mass
human space flight is rapidly approaching. With the successful
demonstration flights of Space Ship One in 2004 and the da Vinci
Projects own first manned flights to take place in 2006, we are
on the edge of realizing our dream of moving mankind out of the
The Annual X PRIZE Cup:
The da Vinci Project is dedicated to completing its initial manned
flight missions, doing so ahead of any other competition. In addition
we will be competing in the annual X PRIZE Cup in New Mexico with
two new very innovative space racer designs.
Sub Orbital Flight for Everyone:

Our vision and bold dreams only begin there. Designs.
Plans are taking hold for a big leap forward in reliable cost effective
sub-orbital manned space flight. We will unveil our own 9 person
(7 passenger plus 2 crew) sub-orbital launch vehicle design in
2006 with an operational readiness objective of sometime in 2009.
The images give you an early glimpse of our spaceport concept design. The imbedded spacecraft and launch aircraft
are from actual CAD drawing of the next generation sub-orbital
First Steps to Orbit:
With much excitement in the air about commercial launches within
the next few years and orbital attempts by 2010 for the America’s
Space Prize, the da Vinci Project has embarked on a bold goal.
Utilizing our engineering and manufacturing strength in extremely
large balloon technology, we’ve begun the design for a high
altitude manned orbital demonstrator. Stay tuned for more details
on this ground breaking project which goal is to put the first
private person all the way into orbit.
Our aspirations go to orbit and beyond. We will continue to utilize
the balloon launch technology in areas where it holds its greatest
strength as well as ground launched winged designs and air launched
wing designs for both sub-orbital and full orbit operations.
