NEW! The Hybrid Manual has been revised, with new sections added. Currently 102 pages of inspiring Hybrid Design Concepts, theory, sources, and test data.

The latest revision now includes dimensioned drawings on the CD for making your own hybrid motors using simple techniques and readily available materials!

The CD-ROM has been further edited, newer versions of some spreadsheets added and some more utilities to make design work easier.

Still the same price for 30% more text and much more on the CD.

The Hybrid Propulsion Manual - covering principles of operation, specific details on construction and testing and with information on propulsion systems from the GIRD vehicle in the 1930's to the SpaceShip One Propulsion System which sent a civilian astronaut into space for the first time.

Over 100 information-packed pages - 14 chapters and 7 appendices - includes a CD with video, photos, drawings and reports - spreadsheets and design aids for creating hybrid propulsion systems.

Bill Colburn, the Co-Inventor of the Urbanski-Colburn Valve for simplified hybrid motor construction. Bill also designed, constructed and tested the first Hypergolic Hybrid Motor in June of 1951.

Bill also built the first N2O Hybrid motor using 2 inch tanks (laboratory demonstration tanks), the fore-runner of the consumer High Power Rocket Motors now supplied by both Aerotech and Hypertech.

Bill wrote the first Hybrid Propulsion Manual aimed at the field of Experimental Rocketry. This re-written manual is included as part of the SORAC Hybrid Manual.

The Hybrid Manual is offered for $75 which includes the Introduction to Hybrid Technology, the Hybrid Manual, Hybrid Designs, Hybrid Theory, the SORAC Drawings, the Narrative History of the SORAC Project, photographs and video clips.

Hybrids are fascinating
I don't understand why hybrids aren't more popular. Is it the increased time and effort a hindrance? Is it because of lack of interest? Whatever the reason, hybrids offer incredible benefits to those who begin to study their ways. Mr. Colburn provides the key that unlocks that hidden door. He shows the way and holds nothing back. Even if you don't like flying hybrids, this book belongs on your shelf.

In addition, I have to say this about Aerocon Systems, their collection of books and literature are slam-packed with only the highest quality books in existence. If you study these books and let them teach you and guide you, you will be a true rocket scientist.
