SPACE TOURISM HAS ARRIVED

The space-zero gravity can only be experienced by astronauts in space. But now, everyone can experience weightlessness without going to space. The ZERO-G Experience® is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to experience true weightlessness without going to space! Flying on a specially modified Boeing 727, you will experience a weightless environment that allows you to float, flip, and soar like an astronaut.  ZERO-G is the world’s only FAA-certified provider of weightless flights, held to the same Part 121 safety standards as passenger airlines.

How it Works

The specially modified Boeing 727 G-FORCE ONE® aircraft achieves weightlessness by flying aerobatic maneuvers called parabolas. Specially trained pilots perform these aerobatic maneuvers, which are not simulated in any way. ZERO-G passengers experience true weightlessness. From Las Vegas, the G-FORCE ONE will depart and arrive at Signature Airport. It will fly over the Pacific ocean for the weightlessness experience.

What is a Parabolic Flight?

The experience begins just like any commercial flight, but the in-flight entertainment is extra-special. The plane flies between 24,000 and 32,000 feet in a trajectory that resembles a series of gently rolling hills. As the plane begins to descend, you will effortlessly lift off the floor and become weightless. This is not a simulation— you will experience exactly what astronauts feel in space!

My family and I were honored to tour the G-Force One, inside and outside the cockpit, on their stop at the Signature Airport. It was an experience of a lifetime.
