Space flight Experience

ZERO GRAVITY SPACE FLIGHT 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! It’s all part of the Ultimate High space flight experience.

£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)

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

Opportunity to purchase a 360 degree video of your flight.

Utterly brilliant Utter Nutter experience! I can't recommend the Utter Nutter experience highly enough! I had a stupendous flight with Mark "Greeners", who was brillint and great fun, and had a lovely laugh with Corinne, Thea was so lovely, and great to finally meet Jo, who'd been so patient with all my availability changes! Everyone I met was as nice as could be though, and I couldn't have enjoyed the experience more! I was exceptionally lucky because we still had to burn off some fuel before starting the main aerobatics, so I got to do some flying and then an aileron roll myself as well :D I can't wait to come back for Insanity! Thank you to everyone for an absolutely marvellous morning! Btw everything was indeed explained carefully beforehand, as other reviewers have mentioned, which is great, but I'd be lying if I pretended I was following everything during the flight, being somewhat occupied with trying to stop my knees passing my ears at many points (only a small exaggeration; the forces really are amazing) ;D I was absolutely thrilled from start to finish! Even better than I'd hoped for! If you are worried about feeling queasy, don't be- you have to enthusiastically confirm you're ready for the next figure before flying it, so you could always stop and do something calmer if you needed to :)

The most amazing experience The team at Ultimate High were amazing. The flight was exhilarating with acrobatic manoeuvres that were thrilling. I would highly recommend this and I will definitely be back. The pilot I had on the day was also a pleasure to spend time with.

Mind-blowing experience 10/10 UTTER NUTTER CHALLENGE for my 30th. This was my most insane experience I’ve ever completed, and it most certainly will be a hard one to top. I will never forget the day and I would certainly do it all over again! Big thanks to ‘Greeners’ and his team. You made me feel welcomed and reassured that I was in safe hands from start to finish. This experience topped my expectations and I think this has started to new high for me! Be sure to see me again soon Ultimate High team. Thanks again x

Amazing Space Flight Experience Had an amazing experience today at Ultimate High doing the Space Flight Experience.
