BLADE x ZERO-G Adventure Bundle
Rooted in curiosity and adventure, the special package is designed to maximize exploration, education and fun. The unique promotion includes round-trip helicopter flights from the BLADE Lounge East (Manhattan) to and from Newark Liberty International Airport, a pre-flight meal and in-depth flight training at the luxury lounge, 15 periods of weightlessness, a personalized ZERO-G flight suit, special BLADE and ZERO-G merchandise – including a branded mask, a certificate of weightless completion and plenty of photos and video from the flight. All flights will comply with ZERO-G’s recently announcedhealth and safety standards.
Upon arriving in Newark, guests will board G-FORCE ONE® – the company’s specially modified Boeing 727 – to explore the zero-gravity playroom. Complete with padded floors and walls, and video cameras to record the fun, the aircraft will reach heights of 32,000 feet while skilled pilots perform a series of parabolic arcs resulting in various states of weightlessness. Offering a space for adventurists to enjoy the wonders of interstellar travel, flyers can soar the length of the airplane cabin, watch droplets of water hover before their eyes, and release a handful of M&M’s while chasing them down like a game of human Pac-Man.
Upon the flight’s completion, travelers will return to the BLADE East Lounge in Manhattan.
As a technology-powered, short-distance aviation company, BLADE is committed to reducing travel friction for everyday consumers. BLADE flyers can travel by helicopter, seaplane or jet to cities and popular destinations across the country. With private lounges in Manhattan, Miami, Nantucket, and Westchester, guests can travel in style while enjoying iconic design, art and amenities.

The Future of Space Flight
With major advances in science, the idea of private space tourism is becoming a reality. At a fraction of the cost of consumer space flights in development, ZERO-G offers the same weightless experience that flyers would experience on Mars, the moon and in zero gravity, and are currently available to passengers across the country. Taking off from major airports throughout the year, ZERO-G is currently the only FAA-approved organization providing these experiences in the United States.
These days, the commercial space industry – or NewSpace – is a diverse global ecosystem comprised of over 1,000 organizations, ranging from startups to publicly traded companies. ZERO-G bridges the divide between these organizations and everyday consumers by offering tailored space experiences at approachable costs. Drawing explorers ranging from college students to billionaires, ZERO-G has given more than 17,000 flyers the opportunity to feel true weightlessness in 27 cities since launching in 2004.
ZERO-G also provides the country’s only weightless science lab, laying the framework for critical research and development in a variety of industries. The unique environment of microgravity enables game-changing research opportunities for growth in sectors including energy, biotech, materials science, transportation, telecommunications, agriculture, manufacturing and more.
