In The SpaceShip Company, Virgin Galactic had a share of 70% and Scaled Composites (Scaled) had 30% shares. There was a deal between Virgin Galactic and Scaled that Scaled would handover the 30% stake, WhiteKnightTwo (WK2) carrier aircraft, and  the development program of SpaceShipTwo (SS2), a manned sub-orbital spacecraft to Virgin Galactic before Virgin Galactic starts commencing commercial operations. However the WK2 and SS2 will be utilized for Virgin Galactic’s planned spaceline operations. And according to Virgin Galactic’s announcement on October 5, the company has acquired 30% shares of Scaled and has become the only owner of The SpaceShip Company.
