Scientific flights

Weightlessness or microgravity is an unrivalled tool for many scientific disciplines. It allows scientists to study phenomena that, on Earth, are masked or modified by gravity. Gravity-free flights on board the Airbus A310 Zero G therefore help to increase knowledge in almost every area of research. The Airbus A310 Zero G is a flying laboratory shared by multidisciplinary and multinational teams.

Our services  

Discovery flights

Gravity-free discovery flights are open to anyone wishing to experience the incredible sensations offered by weightlessness. Composed of fifteen parabolas, each parabolic flight produces the same weightlessness as astronauts experience in space. Accompanied by astronaut Jean-François Clervoy, passengers also take part in exhilarating onboard activities. What’s more, these flights make unique and eye-catching corporate communication tools.

Zero-gravity scientific research flights

Countless experiments have been conducted in zero gravity across a complete range of fields, including medicine (physiology and cell biology), fluid physics, combustion, atom physics, and biology. Parabolic flights can also be used to test innovative technologies or improve the ergonomics of systems operated by astronauts.

Physiology and cell biology

Study the phenomena or reflexes specific to weightlessness, for a better knowledge of the human body.

Physics

Observe phenomena specific to weightlessness for fluid physics, atom physics and combustion.

Space technology

Test innovative technologies that can be used in spacecraft, such as cooling systems, and deployment or folding systems.

Equipment ergonomics

Improve the ergonomics of systems operated by astronauts.

Franck Diard
The parabolic flight is a unique experience. It’s hard to put into words. But at any rate the effects - joy, wonder, and impatience as you wait for the next parabola - are immediate, intense and shared by everyone. The...
