New England to Offer Zero-Gravity Flights this Spring
Hold on to your bonnet. Have you ever wanted to experience zero gravity as the astronauts do? Don’t have time to do all that training and get a job at NASA? Well, hop on a zero-gravity flight and experience it! Now is your chance. Boston.com is reporting that Zero-G, a company that has been offering weightless flight experiences all over the country is coming to Portsmouth International Airport at Pease in New Hampshire on May 3.
Celebrities that have taken a ride with Zero-G include Martha Stewart, Keith Urban, Ozzy Osbourne, and many others. The price tag for the experience of a lifetime is steep. $5,400 each, which does include a take-home flight suit, professional photos, t-shirt and certificate of weightless completion which you can hang on your wall for bragging rights.
Boston.com does report that you must have a medical history form filled out and Zero-G advises that you do not drink alcohol the night before the flight. They also encourage you to load up on carbs before you go up so go ahead and pound down those muffins and croissants. You do need to be at least 8 years old and those under 14 must be accompanied by an adult. If you have always wanted to do somersaults in midair and hang in zero gravity like an astronaut, here is your chance to accomplish your dreams. A family of four would spend $21,600 dollars so you might want to rethink taking the kids unless you have money to burn. It sounds like fun.
