What Can I Expect

Prepare for take off on a space flight experience! These flights are all about the g forces. Taking off from Goodwood Aerodrome in a Slingsby T67 Firefly, you'll be pushing the envelope of aviation, experiencing the same g forces as astronauts on a space flight.

After meeting your instructor and hearing about what to expect during your flight, it all starts to get very real when you're handed the military-style flying suit to put on!

The aim of the game on this experience is for you to fully experience the extremes in g forces that the T67 is capable of. To help you get an idea of the scale of things, when you do that take off roll in something like a Boeing 737 and you feel pushed back in your seat, you'll be experiencing something like 0.4 of g. On this flight, it's up to around 3g at take off!

After a powerful take-off worthy of any launch pad lift off, you'll be in the air ready to execute aerial moves that'll have you experiencing some serious plus and minus g forces. It's all about the speed, angles and the rate of acceleration or deceleration.

At the most extreme moments of this space flight experience you'll feel totally weightless. At the other end of the scale, some moves will see you feeling over four times heavier than you are. As soon as you're strapped in and ready, it's time to push the plane and you to your limits.

What's more, if you're up for it, your pilot will hand the controls of the plane to you. That means not only do you get to experience g forces like an astronaut, it's you who will be initiating the g-force inducing turns, ascents and descents!

You will need nerves of steel and an iron stomach for these space flight experiences, but daredevils will be rewarded with amazing sensations usually reserved for astronauts and cosmonauts. It's going to be an intense 30-minutes of flying time, but we think you'll absolutely love it.
