Pictures and Video on Board G-FORCE ONE®
We make capturing your Zero-G Experience® a top priority. For that reason, we have an experienced photographer aboard each flight to photograph the many amazing weightless moments you’ll experience. In addition, six mounted high definition cameras will be continually filming your every move. While we don’t prohibit cameras on board, we recommend leaving the photography to us. Keep in mind your periods of weightlessness will only last about 30 seconds. Trying to compose and take pictures will greatly reduce the time you have to enjoy the experience. Additionally, most smart phones and cameras have a shutter delay that makes shooting pictures in zero-g difficult. The moment you were trying to capture will be gone by the time the photo is taken.
Tips for Maximizing Your Zero-G Experience®
- During Martian and Lunar parabolas, ease yourself in the microgravity environment by trying one-armed and one-fingered push-ups.
- Listen for “Feet Down, Coming Out,” which signals the end of the parabola. When you hear this signal, orient your feet towards the floor and prepare to lie down.
- When you begin to feel weightless, relax and allow yourself to naturally rise off the floor. You will be surprised at how little effort is needed to move in any direction.
- During the high-G portions of the flight, lie flat on your back, keep your head still, and focus at a point on the ceiling. This will help minimize any symptoms of motion sickness.
- Many people think they should skip breakfast the day of their flight, however, the best way to prevent motion sickness is to eat the light breakfast consisting of carbohydrates avoiding dairy, protein, and acidic juices. Such a light breakfast will be provided the morning of your flight.
- Avoid alcohol the night before your flight.
- Although you may feel the instinct to swim, kicking your arms and legs won’t propel you, and could potentially hurt another passenger. Instead, gently and intentionally push off a surface of the plane to move.
- Make sure to use the bathroom prior to boarding, as there is no lavatory on the plane. If you have an unexpected bathroom emergency during a flight, ask a flight attendant for assistance.
- Although cameras and phones are permitted on board, we recommend you enjoy every second in weightlessness and leave the photography and videography to us!
- Bring as little with you onboard the plane as possible, noting that all items should fit inside a flight suit pocket.
