Everyone who has ever dreamt of being an astronaut, raise your hand. We all have our hands up, right? There a couple of reasons why we all wanted to be astronauts. One, to get those out-of-this-world (seriously!) pictures of our planet. And two, we wanted to float through air without gravity getting in the way. Well, we have good news, you don’t have to launch yourself into space to get just that.
As much as we hate to admit it, this is likely as close to an outer space experience we’ll ever have. But hey, if we can’t make it to the moon, this is a pretty wicked alternative. So come join us as we float, flip and soar as though we were in space with this zero gravity experience.
Take a deep breath, board a specially modified Boeing 727, G-FORCE ONE® and experience true weightlessness. This is achieved by doing aerobatic manoeuvres known as parabolas, specially trained pilots give passengers a truly weightless experience. No simulation here!
Starting at a horizontal altitude of 24,000ft, the pilot begins to pull the aircraft up to about 45⁰ angle, reaching 32,000ft altitude. At this time, passengers will feel the pull of 1.8Gs. Then the plane is “pushed over,” creating the zero gravity segment of the parabola. For these 20-30 seconds everything on the plane is weightless. Now, repeat this over 15 times and you have yourself a truly unmissable experience!
Though, you won’t be going to space, the feeling of zero-gravity gets you pretty darn close. And admit it, you don’t have to commit to eating freezer-dried foods for months at a time.
Enjoy it! And think of us… sitting at the office… being jealous!
G-FORCE ONE® is available in Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Orlando, San Francisco, Seattle and Washington
