Media and creative content company FRC submitted an entry to the NASA 2017 Film Festival called “Space Crazy”. The film highlights Chicago and two leaders of NewSpace Chicago: David Hurst, CEO of Orbital Transports, and Capt. David C. Koch, CEO of Air Chicago. 

At this event, we will present a screening of the film, followed by a panel discussion with David and David to learn more about the people behind the film and how NewSpace Chicago has assisted their space startups.

Orbital Transports is a space logistics and orbital infrastructure company with a long-term goal of enabling human settlement of the Solar System. The company coordinates the complex elements involving space vehicles, people, facilities, and services required for successful space missions. Currently focused on delivering small satellite solutions from initial concept through to completed mission, Orbital Transports offers businesses with limited prior experience in space a low-risk and cost-effective opportunity to harness value from space. 

AirChicago is a Chicago-area-based startup that is designed to be space-scalable. AirChicago flights will operate Monday through Friday to 30 popular business and leisure destinations from Chicago Executive Airport. AirChicago’s long-term plan is to acquire a fleet of hypersonic airliners to serve intercontinental routes as well as low-Earth-orbit destinations such as space resorts, space-based manufacturing facilities and orbital spaceports where passengers can transfer to cislunar flights. 

FRC is a sanctuary created out of a need for a different creative company who not only values epic ideas, but who is willing to make a collective choice to dedicate time investing in each other. We call this Creative Altruism. Our business is to ensure all people have a place to go, see their ideas live and become investment opportunities in their own prosperity and growth, both personally and monetarily.
