Design Goals: The Traveller Mk 3 (Mk 2 not launched due to safety concerns), is designed to exit Kerbin's atmosphere, achieve stable orbit, and return SAFELY to Kerbin's surface

Launch Goals: Achieve following milestones:

  • Launch to 10 km
  • Manned Launch to 10 km
  • Manned Launch to 50 km
  • Achieving stable orbit
  • Achieving manned stable orbit
  • First Kerbal EVA

Pilot Plan: Launch using solid thrusters, then switch to stage 2 to achieve a stable orbit. Using the 3rd stage we will exit orbit and re enter. Through use of main thrusters and other emergency boosters to slow the command pod down, we will land the pod on land.

Good pre-flight briefing, but I would recommend thinking through HOW to achieve a stable orbit, how to exit and re-enter, etc.
