Cheapest “No Gravity Flights”: Swiss Space System

A commercial aerospace company out of Switzerland offers flights in weightlessness for everyone. An Airbus A340 is used for this porpoise. Cheapest seats on board are for 2000 euros. Thats cheap and nice…

The 21 year-old aircraft with the registration mark 9HTQM is an Airbus A340-300, built originally for Singapore Airlines. This wide-body aircraft is equipped with four engines made by American-French CFM56 designers. About the Portuguese airline Hi fly the aircraft registered in Malta recently finally came into the possession of the Swiss space systems (S3) headquartered in Payerne and several subsidiaries in the Switzerland, Spain and the United States. The cabin of the Airbus is now completely been rebuilt. It offers 70 to 80 passengers sits in three zones.

There are commercial flights with a duration of approximately 90 minutes. Within this period of time, the deep black-lacquered Airbus total will perform 15-parabolic flight maneuvers where the steep “nosedive” along the parabolic down each for 20 to 25 seconds a total weightlessness is created. Swiss space systems (S3) stressed here, that the flight control system of the machine safe a “not-yet-experienced accuracy in the parabolic flight profiles”.

These flights except from Switzerland, where the headquarters of Payerne by Swiss space systems has a relatively large military airport in the Swiss air force, also from airports in other European countries, in the Middle East, Asia and Central America to be offers.

2000 euro for the party zone, 50,000 euros for the VIP room

Weightless competition from France

In addition, that the passenger seats offered to a limited extent with 6000 euros per course and flight in relation to the offer from Swiss space systems are quite expensive.
In the longer term, Swiss space systems targeting space.

Swiss Space System 2000 euro
Starting in the autumn, everyone who pays Swiss Space System 2000 euro for a flight on a converted Airbus can experience weightlessness.

In doing so, the Swiss have even bigger plans: namely a vehicle in such a way on the way to bring that it is placed up on a converted jet airliner. The maximum altitude of the large Jet roughly in 13,000 meters, then start to dive the own drive and flying it into space.
