ZERO GRAVITY CORPORATION ANNOUNCES RELAUNCH OF 2020 FLIGHT SCHEDULE
Updated dates for weightless flights planned across the country
New health & safety plan put in place
Zero Gravity Corporation (ZERO-G) today announced its revised 2020 flight schedule, set to bring weightless experiences to eager adventurers across the country. The eight-city tour will include Long Beach, Calif.; San Jose, Calif.; Seattle, Las Vegas, Newark, N.J.; Washington D.C., Houston and Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Along with the new schedule, the weightless flight company has also announced updated health and safety measures put in place to help combat COVID-19 concerns.
“We have spent the last few months working on our new website and determining the safest possible way to offer incredible weightless experiences,” said Matt Gohd, ZERO-G CEO. “For a fraction of the cost of consumer space flight, ZERO-G is paving the way for the general public to enjoy the wonders of interstellar travel without ever having to leave Earth’s atmosphere.”
As at-home consumers begin to seek ways to safely enjoy adventure, the flights offered by ZERO-G continue to be the only FAA-approved opportunities in the U.S. for individuals to experience true weightlessness. The company’s specially modified Boeing 727 is a zero-gravity playroom complete with padded floors and walls – perfect for soaring through the aircraft’s cabin like a superhero – and video cameras to record all the unforgettable moments.
The company’s updated health and safety plan includes pre-flight pulse and temperature checks, as well as the required use of personal protective equipment provided by ZERO-G. Additionally, the company has reduced flight capacities by 30 percent to not only allow for adequate social distancing, but to also create even more room for guests to float freely. During all flights, a full cabin exchange with external air will occur every 3 minutes. To find more details regarding ZERO-G’s health and safety plan, click here.
Valued at $6,700 per person, the ZERO-G experience includes breakfast, flight training, 15 periods of weightlessness, a ZERO-G flight suit, ZERO-G merchandise – including a branded mask, a certificate of weightless completion and photos and video to remember this unforgettable experience.

The ZERO-G Experience
Each ZERO-G mission is designed for maximum fun. Talented ZERO-G pilots will perform a series of parabolic arcs while flying in a FAA designated airspace. At the top of each arc, flyers soar through the plane like astronauts, perform effortless tricks and flips, watch droplets of water hover before their eyes, release a handful of M&M’s and chase them down like a game of human Pac-Man and more – all while sharing a world known only by a small fraction of the population.
Since operating its first commercial flight in 2004, ZERO-G has given more than 17,000 flyers the opportunity to feel true weightlessness in 27 cities across the country. It has also hosted an impressive collection of celebrities and scientists including Stephen Hawking, Buzz Aldrin, Peter Jackson, George Takei, Justin Bieber, Kate Upton, Martha Stewart, The Osbournes, Ashton Kutcher and many others.
