Flying ZERO-G is a rare opportunity that only a select few have experienced calling it amazing and life-changing. ZERO-G flights are an extraordinary and exciting luxury travel experience. It is the only opportunity on Earth for the general public to experience true “weightlessness” without going to space.

The April 17 flight will offer the classic ZERO-G Experience where fliers will enjoy 15 weightless parabolas, each lasting about 30 seconds. The profile of the parabolas will allow passengers to experience Martian, lunar and zero gravity.

The Platinum Experience on the 24th will offer the same weightless experience; however flyers will have 40 percent more room in the floating lounge and will also enjoy two extra parabolas. Hotel accommodations and other amenities, such as premium ZERO-G merchandise are also included.

For both flights, ZERO-G guests will receive:

  • Pre-flight training to maximize their ZERO-G and Platinum Experience
  • Private transportation to/from Space Coast Regional 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 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.

Nicole Kidman, Keith Urban, 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. The ZERO-G Experience is offered at a price of $4,950 per seat plus tax. The Platinum Experience is offered at a price of $6,800 per seat plus tax.
