Europeans no longer need to fly to the US or Russia to enjoy a Zero-G flight experience. Come March 15th and Europe’s “Zero-G” aircraft will start making commercial flights for paying customers.

The Zero-G experience which was until now restricted to trainee space explorers and scientists can now be enjoyed by anyone and everyone. The Airbus 300 will fly parabolas, and offer around 30 seconds of Zero-G experience at the top of each loop!

The duration of the commercial Zero-G flights will be around two and a half hours, with passengers acquiring a total of five minutes of weightlessness, floating in a big padded cabin.
