I would love to know what the flight deck looks like. I assume that due to the nature of its mission, it wont need to be IFR certified or need anything more than a simple navigation system.

Found the answer on nasaspaceflight.com.
will be powered by six 46,000-66,500 lbf thrust-range jet engines, that are planned to be sourced from two used 747-400s that have already been purchased. These planes will be cannibalized not just for their engines, but also the avionics, flight deck, landing gear and other proven systems that can be recycled to cut development costs.

Needs IFR to fly in class A airspace

Due to the nature of the task assigned to stratolaunch and the area it need to operate in, it would have to be IFR certified and a standard large aircraft navigation system. What I wonder is if it will fall into the 'Super Heavy' category with the A380 or if it will just be in the 'Heavy' category. Will wait and see.

I know the category is based of the total weight (payload and aircraft) but i don't know what is the required weight to be categorized "super". The "heavy" are 160,000 lbs and + if my memory don't failed me.

Whew! I think that a quote from the late, great Yogi Berra summed up feeling for this gigaplane years ago when he said, "The future ain't what it used to be!"

Yeah, but if you come to a fork in the road, take it!

i wonder if there are any stresses in the "beam" that connects the two hulls?
probably not.
rartac
My thoughts exactly. Not to mention harmonics between the two hulls. Doesn't look sound at all.

All structures have stresses. You would have to research a significant part of Scaled Composites history to learn all the dynamic stress control techniques they have developed and adapted for use on this aircraft. Suffice it to say they chose the one wing two fuselages layout several design iterations ago and it is well proven.

Windows has had tens of thousands or exploitable flaws. Is this aircraft any different?
