The ultimate experience of weightlessness and zero gravity is no longer going to be limited to space. UAE has set another landmark by introducing flights over zero gravity by 2022. This is going to be a small journey of a lifetime of experiences.
Among the 15 countries offering zero gravity tours, UAE is also about to join with this. It will be a 90 minutes long journey that will be in operation from Swiss Space systems. The flight is beginning at just Dh 10,000 and will be a 90 minute long flight. The system will be operating on 6 days in April, from April 9 to 11 and April 16 to 18.
Earlier this flight experience was given only to the practiced astronauts and scientists who were space researchers from NASA. However, the Swiss Space system became among the few operators to give the flight experience to commoners.
On this, a US exhibitor quoted for offering parabolic flight in the coming future for experiencing total lightness, weightlessness, soaring, flipping and flying just like astronauts in the 72nd International Astronautical Congress.
Noelle Pearson, director of sales, Zero G said that this experience would be given before touching the suborbital boundary. Citizens too can now experience suborbital space without spending money as good as reaching space, and it is a budget-friendly yet a lifetime experience.
How Will The Zero Gravity Flight Pick Up?
To commence the journey of zero gravity, the aircraft will pick up a flight of 45-degree angle to reach a height of 24,000 feet to 34,000 feet. After 20 to 25 seconds, the flight will drop down at 45 degrees for initiating the parabolic arc. Here the passengers will experience weightlessness. This flight will cater to 40 passengers in the party zone and 28 passengers in the premium zone. Premium zone people also get the privilege of enjoying balloons and liquids at this parabolic flight.
The journey is going to be small but one of a kind.
