Tim Chrisman Executive Director of the Foundation for the Future (F4F) and Oscar S. Garcia,
Chairman and CEO of InterFlight Global Corporation’s wholly owned subsidiary, the High-Speed Flight-FastForward Project (IFG-HSAT-FF) signed a strategic collaboration agreement to augment their respective groups activities.
The F4F pioneers America’s success in space through visionary space transportation and infrastructure projects. The High-Speed Flight-FastForward project leads the world as a high-speed space point to point transportation industry think-tank andcollaboration group.
The F4F and HSAT-FF will promote each other’s activities, and other areas of action and interest to the space community. Thegroups will deliver joint-sessions, programming, publications, and other promotional activities of high interest to the market, industry , government and NGO’s.

“We at the Foundation are committed to making space real for everyone, and to that end we are excited to partner with the High-Speed Flight-FastForward project in their work as thought leaders in the advancement of transportation technology and capabilities. As we near the time when millions of people will be travelling to, from and through space, it is time to increase cooperation in setting the standards, developing norms, and creating lasting models of success.” Tim Chrisman, F4F Executive Director
“The point-to-point space transportation industry vertical will open up and address a market of over $800 billion a year andover 100 million space travelers by 2040. Addressing this market safely, efficiently, and sustainably requires investments in infrastructure and technologies that need to be funded and effected today. We are proud to join forces with F4F, as its vision, mission and success will be key to ensure the financial resources, standards, regulatory environment, and operationalframeworks are ready for this game changing opportunity. A faster connectivity across the globe using space as a transportation mode, will make the world safer, more peaceful, and wealthier. Fast point to point flight will also pave the road for multi planetary point-to-point transportation. To achieve a multi planet humanity, people need to make the world smallerand to be able to routinely cross the world and back in one business day” Oscar S. Garcia, IFG and HSAT-FF CEO
