Feb 21, 2023
0-G Launch ("0-GL") is an aerospace venture founded in Washington, USA in 2019. It provides high-precision zero-gravity flights using Space Jet™, a commercial aircraft modified for weightless experience flights, and aerial launch services for orbital rockets and hypersonic vehicles.
0GL and PD Aerospace signed an MOU to launch services at Shimojishima Island Spaceport. They agreed to conduct zero gravity flight operations, support sales and marketing activities, and conduct related activities such as research, education, and tourism.
PD Aerospace (headquartered in Nagoya, Aichi Prefecture) is a venture company that established the "Shimojishima Space Port Project Promotion Consortium" in July 2021 to develop a space port project based on the "Shimojishima Airport and Surrounding Land Utilization Project" agreement with Okinawa Prefecture.
They plan to utilize 0GL's Space Jet™ at Shimojishima for astronaut training flights, zero gravity flight experience for consumers, and research and development of aerospace industry technology. Shimojishima will be 0GL's first base of operations in Asia.
