Do you need
What we have
  • To expose your application to in-flight zero- or low gravity conditions (e.g. moon or mars)
  • To save on your experiment cost by obtaining a favourable cost-per-parabola ratio
  • To perform only a limited number of parabolic manoeuvres, without being forced to take more parabolic manoeuvres and/or test flights than you need
  • To use a low gravity flight test facility that is solely dedicated to your project, allowing for a customer oriented and confidential project environment
  • To be able to return to base whenever your application is not functioning as it should, thereby saving valuable flight test time
  • A modified and instrumented Cessna Citation II research aircraft capable of performing zero or partial gravity flight manoeuvres
  • A relatively small aircraft which allows for favourable cost, yet provides enough cabin space for many low gravity applications
  • Flight operations that are dedicated to a single customer or project, which allows for:
    • Performing of only those parabolic manoeuvres that are required by the customer (saving time and cost)
    • Aborting a flight whenever your application requires so (saving flight time)
    • Confidentiality and protection of intellectual property rights
  • A flight test organisation which offers flexible (re)scheduling of flights and a short time between project request and flight test execution
  • A Part 21 based design organisation to support installation of your application onboard our aircraft
  • A flexible and affordable flight test facility representing almost one century of experience
  • Experience with low gravity flight testing in the field of:
    • Fluid physics
    • Sensors and systems
    • Mechanical structure (wing bending)
    • Physiology
    • Low gravity flight guidance / flight director testing
    • Instructions (aerospace engineering curriculum)
    • Demonstrations
    • Training (pilot flying skills)
