SPACE FLIGHT “ZERO GRAVITY ” EXPERIENCE

Ever wondered what it feels like to go into space? With our “Space Flight” experience you will feel the launch pad acceleration (3G), marvel at being weightless with zero gravity (Zero G) and experience the deceleration of Earth’s atmosphere on re-entry (4.5G).

Your ex-military instructor will show you the G-forces experienced by astronauts, including weightlessness, without the vast expense of travelling to the USA to experience it!

Strapped in securely, under Zero G you will feel weightless as you rise out of your seat slightly, effectively “floating”.  We also demonstrate Zero G with a toy astronaut or foam ball in the aircraft.  You can try zero G as much as you like during your flight, for periods of up to around 5 seconds at a time.

Flown in the T67 Firefly ex-military training aircraft and sitting side-by-side with your instructor, you will also fly these forces yourself!

Prices

£395 for a weekday (Monday-Friday)

Arrival

You should expect to be with us for between two and three hours.

You will be kitted out in a high quality flying suit and choose your call sign.

You will be taught some of the background to space flight, and taught how to fly aerobatics (yourself!), and be given a detailed safety brief.

At the aircraft, you will be shown the cockpit controls and receive another safety brief.

The flight

You will sit side-by-side with your instructor.

Take-off and get to know the aeroplane: introduction to effects of controls – turning, climbing, descending.

Feel the same G-force acceleration that astronauts experience on lift-off from the launch pad (3G).

Replicate the sensation of being weightless (Zero G), exactly as astronauts would feel in orbit.

Gasp as your body weighs 4.5 times its normal weight as you simulate the forces on re-entry.

Enjoy the opportunity to replicate some or all of these forces yourself as you fly the aeroplane.

Time in the aircraft is around 40 minutes (20 minutes in the air)

AFTER Landing

Debrief with your instructor, including amount of G-force pulled and flight certificate.

Opportunity to purchase a 360 degree video of your flight.

apocalypse Arrived as usual with a relaxed and friendly reception. Thank you Jo and Thea. After the briefing we made our way to the Airfield with Thea and some bloke called Greeners.(only joking Mark).Took off for the warm up bearing in mind this was my forth real challenge. From the very start i new this was going to be the most extreme. I tried a roll(i have control)i think i stalled the engine. Then i was asked to try a left flick, which i did and thought it was ok.Then Greeners took control and said this is how you do a flick,Wow.Then after that an impressive but majestic barrel roll. Bearing in mind were still in the warm up. As things progressed in the challenge things really kicked off barrel rolls, the roulade, the cravat,the + Gs,the - Gs wow you could feel that. All the time Greeners is telling you what's going on and a bit of singing thrown in.(its not as bad as you think).Then the finale, the windmill followed by the inverted spin not necessary in that order. Utterly Utterly incredible. Thanks again to all the team hope to see you soon. All the best Steve Humphrey.

Awesome experience! Loved it so much the first time had to go and do it again! Fantastic day from start to finish, I flew with Steve 'Jos' Johnson who made sure I got the most out of my day... I flew some loops & barrel rolls and he then demonstrated some slightly more complicated manoeuvres! Absolutely amazing experience. Will be back, this time for the Extra 300 I think......

Ultimate High insanity flight Just flew insanity with the team at ultimate high. What a fantastic experience. All the staff are professional and friendly, make you feel at ease from start to finish. So this is an invitation flight for successfully completing utter nutter. Wow, insanity is the correct name. Greeners take you on a roller coaster ride of high g aerobatics,that honestly should not be possible. A full airshow routine, non stop adrenaline. Honestly, I can't recommend, as its not for everyone but if you want a next level buzz, you've got to try it. I managed to complete this and now look forward to my invitation the "the big one" the windmill manoeuvre was totally epic and not like anything I've ever done. Wow! Thanks greeners and thanks to the whole team for making my day an unforgettable experience. See you soon

I flew a plane! Such an experience. I GOT TO FLY A PLANE! Don't get me wrong, I can still feel my breakfast coming up and it's 5pm, but well worth the "after effects". Getting to actually take the controls takes this kind of experience to a whole different level. The team were also great. Shout out to Jonesy our pilot.

Top Gun - Amazing! Wow… where do I start? Just about coming down from my Top Gun experience this morning. Andy my pilot was just superb, guiding us through each stage of flight, explaining what was going on. Between the close formation flying, simulated dog fight (even better than I imagined) and aerobatic maneuvers, it is hard to say what the highlight was. Ultimate High folks are so professional, well organized and most of all safety focused. Would not hesitate in flying with them again even with “someone” singing ???? Thanks guys!

(Ultimate) High Way to The Danger Zone ???? Wow, what an incredible experience! Mark "Greeners" Greenfield and the entire team at UH were so hospitable, friendly, and knowledgeable. They can make any beginner feel at ease about flying! Here is what happened on the day: 1. Fill out a quick health assessment 2. Select your flight suit and call sign 3. Sit through a basic safety briefing 4. Walk out to the plane and strap on your harness and parachute 5. Fly for roughly 25 minutes During the flight itself, your instructor will show you the basic moves, and you simply follow them when you're ready to do so. Your experience is completely dependent on how much of a thrill seeker you are. In my case, I went up to 5gs of force and still wanted more! In between moves, Mark and I were casually talking about the experience and having a great laugh along the way. A throughly enjoyable couple of hours, and a friend made in Mark. Highly recommended and would definitely do it again!

BEST "HIGH" NO DRUGS REQUIRED!! Utter Nutter - 60th birthday present to self.....boy, did it exceed expectations!! An experience that surpassed anything previously. If you desire a simultaneous rush of fear and terror coupled with an intoxication of awe and exhilaration, don your flight suit and parachute and jump into the cockpit!! Pilot, Mark G is aptly named as the G's are incredible. What a pilot and what a professional team at Ultimate High and the welcome and hospitability you receive is equal to the flying experience. If you have even an inkling, don't procrastinate, just do it.

It's not everyday you get the opportunity to fly a plane next to a Fighter Jet pilot, Red Arrows pilot & Virgin Atlantic pilot... We were in complete awe! Huge special thanks to 'JOS' & Rich for making our experience so memorable in every way. An experience we will remember for a lifetime and with our own video footage to keep forever! Thank you so much to the team!!. A 30th birthday we will definitely never forget!! #The Ultimate Top Gun Experience. Paul & Hayley (06/06/23).
