turism&travel : First commercial weightless flight blasts off

Tuesday 19 January 2010

On February 13, Zero Gravity Corporation's (ZERO-G), G-FORCE ONE will blast off from VNY airport offering a thrilling opportunity to defy the law of gravity.

Guests will have the unique opportunity to float freely and lighten up in complete weightlessness onboard ZERO-G's weightless flight. ZERO-G is the first and only FAA-approved provider of commercial weightless flights.

The weightless experience is an extraordinary and exciting luxury travel adventure. It is the only opportunity on Earth for the general public to experience true "weightlessness" without going to space. ZERO-G will provide unparalleled opportunities to guests throughout Los Angeles.

ZERO-G guests will receive:

- Pre-flight training to maximize their ZERO-G Experience - Private transportation to/from VNY Airport - ZERO-G flight suit and patch - Personal photography by a world-class photographer - Post-flight re-gravitation party - Weightless flight award certificate - Branded ZERO-G gifts - The chance to experience the rare and exalted state of weightlessness

The weightless flight is a luxurious and private journey that offers guests the chance to float like an astronaut. The exceptional adventure allows guests to fly like Superman, flip like an Olympic gymnast, and enjoy 10-times more hang-time than the world's best basketball player.

It's not simulated; ZERO-G replicates the same levels of weightlessness enjoyed on Mars (1/3-gravity), the moon (1/6-gravity), and zero gravity. It's an experience unlike any other.

Martha Stewart, Joey Fatone, Ozzy Osbourne, Rob Dyrdek, Beatrice of York, Professor Stephen Hawking, Billy Bush, Gavin Newsom, Burt Rutan, Miles O'Brien, and cast members of "The Apprentice" and "The Biggest Loser" are just a few notable passengers who've flown with ZERO-G and proclaimed it to be one of the most thrilling experiences of their lives.

This is the identical weightless flight experience used by NASA to train its astronauts and used by Ron Howard and Tom Hanks to film Apollo-13. Flights last approximately two hours and deliver 15 separate weightless experiences, each lasting about 30 seconds. This is twice the amount of weightless time achieved in a typical sub-orbital flight into space.
