The What, Why and How
of Beings Systems Microgravity Flights

Parabolic aircraft or zero-gravity aircraft are flights that recreate the gravities of space. These aircraft repeatedly fly up and down at 45º, like a rollercoaster, creating the feeling of weightlessness. They can approximate microgravity (0.0G), planetary gravity – Lunar (0.17G) / Mars (0.38G), and hyper-gravity (1.0G+).

These aircraft are useful for many different types of short-duration research and investigations into technology development. This includes physical, biological and chemical phenomena that are usually masked or modified by Earth’s gravity and innovations into space technologies needed for success in space today and tomorrow.

 

Parabolic Aircraft

Our team has rare expertise in the design, implementation and evaluation of aerospace flight testing. With that advantage, we are tapping into thousands of smaller aerobatic aircraft turning them into accurate, reliable and readily accessible flight platforms. This increases the flights available to investigators by 100x every year.

We have completely re-imagined access to the testing infrastructure for the global space industry. Now, rather than having to wait years, or spend significant funding, investigators can do more experimentation, faster and more often.

If there is an aerobatic aircraft near you, we can turn it into a parabolic testing platform for you. We’re currently rolling out in Australia and we plan to expand internationally. If you wish to fly with us, get in touch and we can identify the aircraft we have near you.

Current locations include:

– Sydney & Newcastle

– Melbourne & Essendon

– Brisbane & Sunshine Coast

 

We’re ready to service Adelaide, Perth, Darwin, Hobart, Auckland, Jakarta, Seoul and Tokyo.

Ithe human race is to prosper into the future. We need to do a better job of accelerating success in space. To excel in space we need to give research and commercial industries more affordable access to the right testing infrastructure.

It is not viable to send every small experiment to the international space station or onto a large and expensive parabolic aircraft. There are thousands of experiments, educational opportunities and important breakthroughs that will only happen with the accessibility and affordability of our services. 

 

Space is unforgiving. Space doesn’t tolerate failure. Testing is essential. We make this testing available to all the innovators, big and small, no matter where they are.

Our team has rare expertise from decades of experience in research, testing and evaluation for the Royal Australian Air Force and ESA.
