Smith, P. G. (n.d.). Reusable Launch Vehicle Operations. Retrieved from

Excerpt: This document is one of several products identified in the Safety Review and Assessment Section of the Commercial Space Transportation Reusable Launch Vehicle Program Plan. The document describes a top-level process sufficiently broad to be applicable to the development and operation of all of the various reusable launch vehicle concepts. While the approval process recognizes long-term expectations including Space Launch Vehicle Approvals, similar to approvals needed in aviation, that might be associated with vehicles carrying hundreds of passengers, the focus of this document and currently proposed safety standards is on handling and managing near-term operations. Further, this plan is intended to be a living document, subject to change, as needs or circumstances dictate. The Associate Administrator for Commercial Space Transportation, the Associate Administrator for Regulation and Certification, and other Federal Aviation Administration lines of business as required, shall partner to ensure that each element of the process is thoroughly examined and executed, subject to available resources, in a manner that best serves the FAA and the commercial space transportation industry.
