Letter from CEO (see previous story: http://www.xprizenews.org/index.php?p=908)

It was only a few years ago now Canadian Arrow entered the X PRIZE race in an attempt to capture the prize. We started with only two plastic models and a set of blueprints drawn from years of research into the V-2 rocket. Our competition ranged from small companies like ourselves to well entrenched competitors with years of experience and notoriety in the aerospace industry. We may have entered the race but our goal was more than just a trophy and a prize, we wanted a business that could lead an industry. If one was to take a look at the events and strategies we applied during the race it would become clear we were doing more than just building a rocket.

Today we live in a world in which the X PRIZE has been won. Well known captains of industry are lining up to build “Space Corporations” for what I am sure will be a very competitive fight for customers. Having opened the world’s first private astronaut training center, we moved forward on a journey to position Canadian Arrow as a leader in the marketplace.

It was on this journey that I crossed paths with Dr. Chirinjeev Kathuria. In Dr. Kathuria I found someone with the same business views of the private space industry as my own. It was not long before PLANETSPACE CORPORATION was born out of our common desire to build the leader in the emerging space travel and tourism industry. It is through PLANETSPACE that Canadian Arrow and Dr. Kathuria will realize the dreams of opening the door to space for you.

It is you, our customers, who will determine how well we do in this new market and you can be sure everyone at PLANETSPACE will be working hard to make sure your dreams of personal spaceflight come true. At Canadian Arrow we are still “making SPACE for you” and through our new partnerships we are now finally able to open SPACE for the whole PLANET.

Best Regards
Geoff Sheerin
President and CEO
Canadian Arrow
