Zero Gravity Flight
Treat yourself and 9 of your closest
friends or family to Go Weightless!!
It's Like Nothing on Earth!
This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to fly like Superman can now be yours.
You'll train with an expert coach, board our specially
modified aircraft, G-FORCE ONE, and experience the unforgettable.
You will experience zero gravity the only way possible without going to
space. A parabolic flight is the same method NASA has used to train
its astronauts for the last 45 years and the same way Tom Hanks floated in
How Does It Work?
A Weightless Flight (also known as Parabolic Flight) is achieved aboard ZERO-G's
Boeing 727 aircraft named G-FORCE ONE. Weightlessness is achieved by flying
G-FORCE ONE through a parabolic flight maneuver. Specially trained pilots fly
these maneuvers between approximately 24,000 and 34,000 feet altitude. Each
parabola takes 10 miles of airspace to perform and lasts approximately one
minute from start to finish.
The maneuver is somewhat like a roller coaster in that the plane is initially
pulled up to approximately 45 degrees 'nose high'. Next the plane is 'pushed
over' the top to reach the zero-gravity segment of the parabolas. For the next
25 - 30 seconds everything in the plane is weightless. At approximately 30
degrees 'nose low' a gentle pull-out is started which allows the Flyers to
stabilize on the aircraft floor. Finally, the g-force is increased smoothly to
about 1.8 g's until the aircraft reaches a flight altitude of 24,000 feet. The
maneuver is then repeated.
The weightlessness experienced by everyone inside the airplane is actually
equivalent to the type of "free fall" you experience when sky diving. In this
case however, the body of the aircraft surrounds you and protects you from the
on-rushing wind. At the end of the free fall period, the aircraft also scoops
you up and carries you back up to the top of the arc to begin the free fall
In addition to achieving zero-g or weightlessness, G-FORCE ONE can also fly a
parabola designed to offer Lunar (1/6th) or Martian (1/3rd) gravity. These
reduced gravity environments are also created with a modified parabola that is
not quite as steep as zero gravity parabola.
Our minimum age for passengers is 12 when flying with a parent or guardian and
15 when flying without adult supervision. We have no maximum age limit and have
had several passengers in their 90's enjoy our experience.
All passengers will be asked to sign a Medical History Form that includes a
series of questions pertaining to certain medical conditions. If you do not have
any of these conditions, it will not be necessary to consult with a doctor. If
you do have any of the indicated conditions, you must confer with your personal
physician and obtain his/her sign-off (a 'fit to fly' letter). If you are
pregnant, have heart or back problems, you should consult your physician to see
if this experience is appropriate for you.
