The flight accommodates 4 guests in a luxurious and comfortable pod with panoramic windows. The ascent is the most crucial phase. Calm and beautiful weather is a requirement. The flight up takes about two hours. Then you stay at cruise altitude for 2 hours to take in the view, have a drink, eat a meal, listen to music, share this special moment in the way you want. To come back to Earth, the balloon separates and the pod lands with a special guided parachute. During descent you get half a minute...

SpaceShipTwo will have a cew of six passengers and two pilots and it has enough large windows for everyone to have a perfect view on Earth from space. Communication between the pilots and passengers goes through wireless headsets. The spaceship takes-off tethered beneath the mothership WhiteKnightTwo. The ascent to launch altitude takes more than an hour. Once released from the mothership on a height of 15km, the spacecraft will take sufficient distance before the pilot ignites the rocket engine...
Spaceflight Novespace Parabolic boeing flights
Before the parabolic manoeuvre, the aircraft flies horizontally, at an altitude of 20 000 ft. The crew prepare for the parabola by steadily increasing speed to about 810 km/h, the maximum authorized for this type of aircraft. The pilot then pulls back steadily on the stick, and the aircraft ascends nose-up until it attains an attitude of 47°, at an altitude of about 25 000 ft . During this phase, referred to as the “entry phase”, a powerful sensation of weight, or hypergravity, is ...
Before starting a parabola, G-FORCE ONE flies level to the horizon at an altitude of 24,000 feet. The pilots then begins to pull up, gradually increasing the angle of the aircraft to about 45° to the horizon reaching an altitude of 34,000 feet. During this pull-up, passengers will feel the pull of 1.8 Gs. Next the plane is “pushed over” to create the zero gravity segment of the parabola. For the next 20-30 seconds everything in the plane is weightless. Next a gentle pull-out is started whic...

The US Federal Aviation Administration has determined
that the technical challenges facing the
pressurized capsule are essentially the same as those met in low-earth
orbit. They are requiring that the capsule be designed and tested as if
it were going to have long-term exposure in space, although it is never
intended to operate at altitudes higher than 30 km. It will not, however,
have to follow the rules and procedures governing launch of suborbital
rockets, as the World
