Have you ever had that dream where you’re flying? Where you swoop through the air, floating free? Well, here’s your chance to live the dream. (And let me tell you from experience, it is really REALLY amazing!)
To commemorate their 300th commercial flight, the Zero Gravity Corporation is looking for a special mission patch design. The winning artwork will be transformed into a patch that will be worn on the right arm of the participant’s flight suit. The designer will also win a free seat aboard flight “ZG-300” taking off from the Ft. Lauderdale airport in Florida (same site as ZG-1!) on April 14, 2012.
Since their inaugural flights in 2004, the Zero Gravity Corporation has been taking the paying public on the same parabolic flights used to train astronauts for over 50 years. For the right price (currently around $5,000), almost anyone can buy a seat on a flight and float through the air like Superman.
Zero-G has hosted some cool stuff including busting the moon hoax with the Mythbusters, a weightless wedding officiated by private space explorer Richard Garriott, and floating physicist Stephen Hawking.
Entries are due no later than by 11:59 p.m. EDT, Monday, March 26, 2012. The winner will be announced on April 2, 2012. The design must contain specific information and fit within the template provided. Start designing and book your flights to FLL now! (Yes, you still have to get to the airport for the Zero G flight!)
