This Boeing 727 lets passengers experience zero gravity by flying crazy maneuvers, and it's now on tour across the US

"G-FORCE ONE" is the name of a converted Boeing 727 that offers customers the opportunity to float like astronauts in a weightless environment.
Zero Gravity Corporation is sending the flight across the country so passengers can be weightless for a few minutes, although the price is quite high.
Additional precautions will be taken during the pandemic, including face masks, disinfecting the aircraft before each flight, and limiting flight loads.

You can now float freely in the cabin.
In the past, the realm of weightlessness was reserved for astronauts exploring the depths of space. However, an aviation company offers the option of becoming weightless while it is still in the Earth's atmosphere. The Zero Gravity Corporation or ZERO-G is the company behind "G-FORCE ONE", a converted Boeing 727 airliner that can simulate the feeling of being in space through so-called parabolic flight.
While a traditional airliner might focus on being straight and level, G-Force One pilots focus on climbing as fast and high as possible before turning around. At that point the effect of gravity is reduced for a few seconds and everything in the plane becomes weightless.
The COVID-19 pandemic has not stopped these flights, although additional precautions are being taken. ZERO-G recently moved to the New York City area where it is partnering with Blade to offer a helicopter ride and the weightless one morning experience.
Take a look inside G-Force One and see how ZERO-G achieves the weightless effect that so many people crave even during a pandemic.
Those taking part in the experience during our visit started their day early at New York's West 30th Street Heliport near Hudson Yards.

As part of ZERO-G's partnership with Blade for flights in the New York area, a special price of $ 4,750 was offered for the experience and an additional $ 390 helicopter transportation to and from Newark Liberty International Airport.

The flyers arrived here as early as 8 a.m. to get dressed and have a quick breakfast before the flight.

Contrary to popular belief, eating the right food before the flight actually helps with the experience and doesn't make you vomit as is the main concern. It's not the "vomit comet" people expect, and very few people get sick on every flight, staff told me.

But it can't be just any meal. ZERO-G's conclusion after thousands of hours of flight shows that foods high in carbohydrates in particular are ideal for flyers.

So this morning the menu consisted of croissants ...

Before heading to Newark, all participants put on their one-piece overalls, much like a fighter pilot would wear, and long socks.

The newest feature on the uniform is the ZERO-G branded face mask, which is required for all flyers as part of the company's COVID-19 precautions so they can keep flying and provide the experience during the pandemic.

All passengers must have their temperature and blood oxygen levels checked with a thermometer and oximeter prior to departure.

Here's a first look at the aircraft they will be flying on, a Boeing 727-200 cargo plane specially configured for those flights through this security card. It is arguably the most exclusive security card in aviation.
