Orbite Astronaut Training Reservation Agreement

The Orbite Astronaut Training Reservation Agreement (“Reservation Agreement”) is between Orbite Astronaut Training LLC (“Orbite”), a legal entity licensed as a seller of travel in the State of Florida (FLA. SELLER OF TRAVEL REF. NO. ST44086), and the Participant (“Principal Participant”), a person at least 18 years of age who has executed the Reservation Agreement and agreed to abide by the Terms and Conditions (“Ts & Cs”) contained herein.

Orbite agrees to reserve one participation slot for a future Orbite Astronaut Training or Pre-opening Session (“Astronaut Training Session”) operated by Orbite in exchange for the payment of a $5,000.00 USD deposit (“Deposit”). Actual participation in an Astronaut Training Session will be dependent upon signing the Orbite Astronaut Training Agreement (“Training Agreement”) and payment of the remaining balance of the total cost of the relevant Astronaut Training Session (“Remaining Balance”) and other terms and conditions as set forth below.

  1. Additional Participants – The Principal Participant may reserve and pay the $5,000.00 USD deposit for one or more additional participation slots in a future Astronaut Training Session for other individuals (“Additional Participants”). Such Additional Participants must be at least 18 years old, or must be at least 14 years old at the time of the scheduled Astronaut Training Session (as long as the Principal Participant is a parent or legal guardian of any Additional Participant who is younger than 18 years old and will accompany such individual at all relevant times during the Orbite Astronaut Training Session). Any such reservations for Additional Participants will be subject to the Reservation Agreement executed by the Principal Participant.
  2. Deposit –  As a condition to Orbite reserving the number of participation slots for the Principal Participant and any applicable Additional Participants, the Principal Participant shall transmit to Orbite the Deposit amount for each individual as a down payment toward the total cost of a future Astronaut Training Session. The Deposit shall be paid via credit card through the Orbite website at www.orbitespace.com. Any Deposit amount received by Orbite shall be credited towards the Session Cost of the Astronaut Training Session (as ultimately determined by Orbite) for the Principal Participant and any Additional Participants.
  3. Priority – Upon execution of the Reservation Agreement and payment of the Deposit, the Principal Participant and each Additional Participant will be assigned a number in the overall queue for participation in a future Astronaut Training Session. Orbite will release specific dates and Astronaut Training Session program content 30 days prior to the opening of Astronaut Training Session reservations. The specific dates and program content of the Astronaut Training Sessions will be determined by Orbite in its sole discretion, and the dates and program contents are subject to change. Once reservations are open, Principal Participants and any applicable Additional Participants can reserve program slots based on their priority status in the queue. After selecting their program and dates, Principal Participants and any applicable Additional Participants will have five (5) days to sign their Training Agreement and pay the Remaining Balance or they lose their reservation slot(s).

    Orbite reserves the right to deviate from the priority structure in the reservation queue at its sole discretion (and in the event this occurs to the detriment of any Principal Participant, the sole recourse available to a Principal Participant will be the ability to request a Refund of the applicable Deposit). Nothing in this paragraph shall prohibit Principal Participant from waiving its reserved place in the queue for participation in the Astronaut Training Session in order to be assigned, along with any associated Additional Participants, to a later place in the queue (although Orbite is under no obligation to accommodate requests to change a spot in the queue and such waiver may forfeit the ability of the Principal Participant and any associated Additional Participants from participating in an Orbite Astronaut Training Session).
  4. Refund – Prior to paying the Remaining Balance, the Principal Participant shall have the right to request a refund (“Refund”) of the Deposit from Orbite for any reason, and in such circumstances Orbite shall be obligated to fully refund the Deposit to the Principal Participant. THE PRINCIPAL PARTICIPANT HEREBY ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT HE/SHE IS PAYING A FULLY REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO RESERVE ONE OR MORE PARTICIPATION SLOTS IN THE ORBITE ASTRONAUT TRAINING PROGRAM (AND, TO THE EXTENT ELIBIGLE, FOR OTHER MEMBERSHIP PRIVILEGES DESCRIBED FURTHER BELOW) AND THAT HE/SHE SHALL NOT BE ENTITLED TO A RETURN OF ANY PORTION OF THE DEPOSIT AMOUNT AFTER PAYING THE BALANCE OF THE TOTAL ORBITE ASTRONAUT TRAINING SESSION COST.
  5. Founders Club Members Privileges – The first 500 Participants (Principal Participants and any associated Additional Participants) who are covered by an executed Reservation Agreement and on whose behalf any applicable Deposit has been paid will be entitled to be a Founders Club Member (“Founders Club Member”). In the event that any Principal Participant requests a Refund of all or any portion of the Deposit amount or a Refund of any Remaining Balance amount, the Principal Participant requesting the Refund and any Associated Participants will lose their Founders Club Membership privileges.Founders Club Members will be entitled to participate in a suite of privileges provided by Orbite which may include insider access to the latest information about Orbite’s progress; access to press briefings; invitations to exclusive milestone event celebrations; pre-opening events; early Astronaut Training Sessions; and other opportunities that Orbite may decide to provide Founders Club Members in its sole discretion. Some Founders Club Member events/benefits might require an additional fee to be paid, and any travel, hotel or other arrangements associated with participating in any such events are at the Founders Club Member’s sole cost and expense. Additional Participants under the age of 18 may not be able to participate in all privileges and benefits provided to Founders Club Members. The list of privileges and benefits provided to Founders Club Members is subject to change at any time in Orbite’s sole discretion and such privileges and benefits shall have no cash value and are non-transferrable. Cancellation, elimination or limitation of any such privileges and benefits shall not entitle the Participant to any refund, compensation, indemnification of any kind, or reimbursement of any cost or expense incurred by the Participant to benefit from such a privilege or benefit.
  6. Termination – This agreement shall automatically terminate on the earlier of the following:
      • In the event Orbite terminates this Reservation Agreement for convenience via written notice and provides a Refund to the Principal Participant and any applicable Additional Participants;
      • Once the Principal Participant and any applicable Additional Participants request and receive a Refund;
      • Once the Principal Participant and any applicable Additional Participants sign their Training Agreement and pay the Remaining Balance, in which case the future relationship is governed by the terms and conditions of the Training Agreement;
      • In the event Principal Participant fails to sign the Training Agreement and / or pay the Remaining Balance, Orbite’s sole remedy shall be to terminate the right of the Principal Participant and all other Additional Participants to participate in any Astronaut Training Session(s). In the event of such a termination, Orbite shall Refund the applicable Deposit amounts.

    In all termination scenarios outlined above, once the Reservation Agreement is terminated the parties shall have no further rights and obligations under this Reservation Agreement. In any scenario where the Principal Participant receives a Refund of all or any portion of the Deposit amount, the Principal Participant requesting the Refund and any Associated Participants will lose their Founders Club Membership privileges.

  7. Limitation of Liability; No Specific Performance – Principal Participant’s sole and exclusive remedy for Orbite’s failure to provide the Principal Participant or any Additional Participant with the opportunity to participate in an Astronaut Training Session, through no fault of the Principal Participant or any Additional Participant, shall be limited to Refund the Deposit paid on behalf of that Principal Participant or Additional Participant (as appropriate). In no event shall Participants be entitled to specific performance, including, but not limited to, compelling Orbite to place Participants in an Astronaut Training Session or otherwise making equivalent accommodations for such Participants.  Neither party shall be liable to the other for special, indirect, punitive, or consequential damages of any kind, even if advised in advance of the possibility of such damages.
