Zero-G flight
Floating holiday:
Zero-G charters
gravity-free flights
for incentive groups.

Want to shed a few pounds? How about all of them? Las Vegas-based Zero-G ( offers three- to four-hour flights during which passengers experience a total of eight minutes of weightlessness without leaving the Earth’s atmosphere. A series of repeated parabolic flight patterns create 30-second windows of weightlessness.

Zero-G launched service from Las Vegas in April at $3,500 per seat, but for incentive or team-building groups, they will charter a flight ($115,000 for 35 people) from any airfield that can handle a Boeing 727-200. Don’t expect bags of free peanuts, but passengers do get to keep their flight suits.
