by | Jun 17, 2024

Have you ever dreamed of journeying into space with your very own space experience, and feeling the incredible forces that astronauts experience during launch, weightlessness, and re-entry?

Ultimate High’s Space Experience brings this dream within reach, offering a unique and exhilarating adventure without needing a billionaire’s bank balance.

 

What to expect from the space experience

Ultimate High’s Space Experience replicates the sensations of a space journey, giving you the chance to feel the powerful G-forces that astronauts encounter. From the intense acceleration of the launch pad to the breathtaking weightlessness of zero gravity, and finally, the gripping deceleration during re-entry, this experience is designed to give you a true taste of space travel.

 

Launch Pad Acceleration (3G)

As you prepare for takeoff in the T67 Firefly ex-military training aircraft, you’ll feel the force of 3G pressing you back into your seat. This simulation of a rocket launch provides an authentic introduction to the extraordinary world of space travel.

 

Weightlessness (Zero G)

During your flight, you will experience periods of zero gravity, where you will feel completely weightless. Securely strapped in, you’ll float slightly out of your seat, giving you the surreal sensation of floating in space.

Your ex-military instructor will also use a toy astronaut or a foam ball to visually demonstrate the effects of zero gravity, enhancing your understanding of this remarkable phenomenon. Each zero G segment lasts up to five seconds, and you can experience this as many times as you like during your flight.

 

Re-entry Deceleration (4.5G)

Re-entering Earth’s atmosphere involves intense deceleration forces, simulating the 4.5G that astronauts endure. This phase of the flight gives you a firsthand feel of the incredible forces involved in returning to Earth.

The space experience aircraft: T67 Firefly

Your journey into simulated space takes place in the T67 Firefly, an ex-military training aircraft known for its agility and reliability. Sitting side-by-side with your highly experienced instructor, you will not only feel these extraordinary forces but also have the opportunity to fly the aircraft yourself, making the experience even more immersive and memorable.

Expertise of ex-military instructors

At Ultimate High, safety and expertise are paramount. Your instructor, a seasoned ex-military pilot, brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to ensure your Space Experience is both safe and thrilling. They will guide you through each phase of the flight, explaining the science behind the G-forces and ensuring you are comfortable and well-informed throughout the adventure.

It’s an unforgettable adventure that brings the wonders of space within reach, all from the convenience of a local airfield.
