ZERO-G To Offer Flights From Dulles International Airport

Zero Gravity Corporation Plans Weightless Flight On April 3

Zero Gravity Corporation's (ZERO-G), G-FORCE ONE will take off from IAD Airport on April 3, offering fliers a rare opportunity to defy the laws of gravity. Those on board will be able to experience complete weightlessness during ZERO-G's weightless flight. ZERO-G is the only FAA-approved provider of commercial weightless flights.

Flying ZERO-G is the only opportunity on Earth for the general public to experience true "weightlessness" without going to space.

The ZERO-G package includes:

  • Pre-flight training to maximize their ZERO-G Experience.
  • Private transportation to/from LaGuardia 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. It replicates the same levels of weightlessness enjoyed on Mars (1/3-gravity), the moon (1/6-gravity), and zero gravity. They say it's an experience unlike any other.

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.
