It was June 2014 that S3 announced it would be using North Bay’s Jack Garland Airport (YYB) and partnering with Canadore College.
S3 was developing an unmanned suborbital spaceplane, called SOAR, for small satellite deployment. SOAR would have been able to launch satellites up to 250 kg in size.
In November 2014 S3 completed it’s drop-test flight campaign in North Bay. S3 later announced it would perform Zero-G flight out of North Bay as well.
The company had planned an initial public offering (IPO) but in late December 2015 cancelled the IPO along with the zero-g flights.
S3 has until December 23rd to contest the Swiss court ruling. It’s unclear if S3 will come out of bankruptcy.
