IS A SUB-ORBITAL FLIGHT A REAL SPACEFLIGHT?

Yes! Virgin Galactic will fly to an altitude of 110km/68mi. The Karman Line, the internationally accepted altitude that defines where space ‘begins’ is 100km/62miles. Sub-orbital is simply the term used to describe a spaceflight trajectory that does not orbit (in this case) the Earth.
