G-Force One To Bring Sky High Adventure To
April 25, 2010 - On May 8, Zero Gravity Corporation's (ZERO-G), G-FORCE ONE will blast off from Fort Lauderdale Hollywood International airport offering a once in a lifetime opportunity, introducing flyers to new heights and 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.
ZERO-G is a rare opportunity that only a select few have experienced calling it amazing and life-changing. 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
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.
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.
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.
