Zero-G : the zero gravity parabolic flight experience

Have you ever wanted to experience weightlessness, similar to what astronauts experience? The ZERO-G Experience isn’t cheap, but it is unique. Starting at $4950 per person, you’ll board a specially modified Boeing 727 which provides a weightless experience through parabolic arcs. Passengers float, flip, and soar as if they were in space.

The hefty price tag includes 12-15 parabolas, ZERO-G flight suit, logo merchandise, a Regravitation Celebration, a certificate to prove you did it, along with photos and video of the experience.

Where can you find this experience? There are three primary locations: Las Vegas, NV, Washington, DC, and Cape Canaveral, FL. Other scheduled flight locations can be found throughout the year.

Can kids enjoy this experience? The minimum age is eight years old and those under 14 years of age must have a parent or legal guardian participate with them, and those younger than 10 must have a parent or legal guardian with each child. There is no maximum age limit, but all participants will have to complete a medical history form to determine is further medical evaluation is needed before confirmed participation.

If you aren’t into the full parabolic flight experience, but want to accompany someone who is participating in the flight, there are packages for non-flyers that begin at $195 per person.

The ZERO-G flights are available for educational and research purposes also and there are resources for grant writing and applications. Of course, if you are a professional lab seeking to conduct serious investigations in Martian, Lunar, zero and hyper gravity environments, the two day research program starts at $29,950.

Recently, Nokia brought winners of their Nokia N8 Producers program who experienced ZERO-G and brought along their Nokia N8s to document the experience. It looks like a blast.

Have you experiences the ZERO-G parabolic flight experience? The price tag may seem hefty, but for some travelers this is an adventure worth the expense. You can find out more at GoZEROG.com.
