                          About ZERO-G CHARTER FLIGHTS
ZERO Gravity Corporation (ZERO-G), the country's only FAA-approved provider of commercial weightless
flights has welcomed top companies and individuals to charter G-FORCE ONE™, ZERO-G’s specially modified
Boeing 727-200 aircraft for corporate incentives, motivational and team building programs, film and production
shoots, birthdays, anniversaries and much more. Individuals and corporations have many different and unique
options when planning their ZERO-G charter experience. Guests can charter one-third, two-thirds or the entire
aircraft for out-of-this-world celebrations and events.

The ZERO-G Experience™ can be chartered from any major city in North America. ZERO-G primarily flies from
Las Vegas and the Kennedy Space Center near Orlando. The charter flight can accommodate as many 35
guest per flight and up to three flights per day.

A ZERO-G flight can be chartered within 48-72 hours depending on the guests’ location and the location of G-
FORCE ONE. ZERO-G will customize the charter and accommodate any requests for individuals and
corporations alike. This includes: branding the inside and/or outside of the aircraft, creating unique and one-of-
a-kind patches for flight suits, an appearance by a veteran astronaut or a celebrity guest, menu customization
for the pre-launch and re-gravitation parties and much more.

The cost for a weightless charter experience onboard G-FORCE ONE is $165,000 plus 5% tax and a ferry
charge. The ZERO-G charter flight program includes training led by a professional astronaut, a two-hour flight
with 15 weightless intervals (parabolas), a flight suit, ZERO-G merchandise, awards, a post-event party, photos,
and a DVD of the flight.

When experiencing total weightlessness, passengers can fly the length of an airplane cabin like superman, flip
like a gymnast, pour water in the air and watch the droplets hover before their eyes, or release a handful of
M&M’s and chase them down like a game of human Pac-Man. It’s not simulated; ZERO-G replicates the same
levels of weightlessness enjoyed on Mars (1/3-gravity), the moon (1/6-gravity), and zero gravity.

To date, ZERO-G has hosted a long list of notable flyers including Buzz Aldrin, Martha Stewart, Princess
Beatrice of York, Professor Stephen Hawking, Joey Fatone, Amy Grant, Anousheh Ansari, Billy Bush, Burt
Rutan, Miles O’Brien, Penn & Teller, Diane Sawyer, Sam Champion and cast members of “The Apprentice” and
“The Biggest Loser,” to name a few.
