- We learn something every day, and lots of times it’s that what we learned the day before was wrong. Bill Vaughan
When joining a ZERO-G Experience aboard G-FORCE ONE, you will encounter the only commercial opportunity on Earth for individuals to enjoy true weightlessness without going to space. The day of your ZERO-G Experience will last about five hours.
How it works
Before starting a parabola, G-FORCE ONE flies level to the horizon at an altitude of 24,000 feet. The pilots then begins to pull up, gradually increasing the angle of the aircraft to about 45° to the horizon reaching an altitude of 32,000 feet. During this pull-up, passengers will feel the pull of 1.8 Gs. Next the plane is “pushed over” to create the zero gravity segment of the parabola. For the next 20-30 seconds everything in the plane is weightless. Next a gentle pull-out is started which allows the flyers to stabilize on the aircraft floor. This maneuver is repeated 15 times, each taking about ten miles of airspace to perform.
