Where do the unique Zero Gravity flights aboard a IL-76 take place?
The unique adventure “Zero Gravity flight aboard a IL-76 MDK” is conducted by our agency in Russia not far from Moscow on a special aircraft from the Russian Federal Space agency (RKA)
What is the idea behind the Zero Gravity flight for tourists?
We often ask ourselves what is Zero Gravity (weightlessness) and why can we only experi-ence it in space and how would we be able to try it out on Earth? There are several definitions, most of which are connected to Physics, that explain the Zero Gravity. But to get straight to the point — Zero Gravity is a condition, under which the force of gravity equals zero. Nowadays, real weightless-ness is experienced only by astronauts in outer space. They both live and work under Zero Gravity conditions. Before actually going to space, every single astronaut goes through a special training that imitates the Zero Gravity on Earth. Precisely these trainigs are the so-called «Zero Gravity Flight aboard a IL-76 MDK» . These Zero Gravity trainings for the future astronauts and tourists can be only performed in high-technology training centers such as the Yuri Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Center (Moscow).
You have to agree that every single one of us once dreamt of becoming an astronaut and to fly out to space to experience this so-called Zero Gravity! And so many of us already heard about space projects for tourists, but the thing is, in order to be ready for a flight to space one has to go through special training programs! Unfortunately these adventures and trainings are not the cheap-est… But despite from that you may test your organism on its tolerance to real weighlessness in space by making this adventure not too far from Moscou — the Zero Gravity Flight aboard a IL-76 MDK plane.
The IL-76 MDK plane ascends to a height of 6000 meters, and then at an angle of 45 degrees with maximum speed rises to 9000 meters. Precisely at this moment aboard the plane the tourists feel a g-force of 2G. When the plane is tracing the parable through its apex for its next descend a Zero Gravity mode is created for about 25 to 30 seconds. Further the plane descends to a height of 6000 meters and mantains that horizontal position for some time. Hereinafter the whole process is repeated — the plane reaches the 9000 meters, the Zero Gravity mode is reached and finally it descends! Tourists who are on board periodically feel a g-force of 2G.
During the flight aboard the IL-76 MDK over 10 to 15 Zero Gravity modes. Also, during all the flight abaord the IL-76 MDK there will be a group of specialists and instructors from the Yuri Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Center present that not only control the performance of the event itself, but also provide the tourists’ safety during the Zero-G flight.
The number of participants in one flight should not be more than 14 people! This allows us to make the Zero-G flight not only more comfortable for the tourists, but safe and fun as well!
Costs of a Zero Gravity flight aboard a IL-76 MDK
The ZeroG flight aboard a IL-76 MKD for tourists has become one of the most popular branches of space tourism! This is one of the most extraordinary and cool adventures in the whole world! By feeling weightless, you will feel like a free bird flying inside the plane… Since every single one of us one day dreamt of flying and of becoming an astronaut!
