In the rush to Space Tourism, even the FAA does not provide the protections that the public expects and assumes are in place. When SpaceshipTwo broke apart in a mid-air test flight, the pilots had no ejector seats or an ejectable capsule with its own parachute. There are none of these items available for future passengers, either.
However, it is important to note that Virgin Galactic broke no laws nor defied any safety regulations by dispensing with any means for crew and passengers to “abort, escape or both.”
“Recommended practices” are just that, recommended.
