You'll want to download space and Arkadia ahead of time and make sure that you leave your lootables behind (anything in the materials or mined resources sections of your inventory is lootable, everything else is safe). If you MUST bring lootables, then I recommend the mothership Normandie, which is currently the safest ship in space and the only mothership with scheduled warp flights.
Mothership flights take about 20 minutes and quad flights can be as short as 32 minutes. You can also buy a space thruster for your vtol and fly yourself there (about 1.5 hours flight time), though I always recommend that first-timers to space fly with an experienced pilot who can teach them the basics of safe space travel.
I sell quad flights and I'm also an Arkadia Adviser, so if you're a new player we can chat about Arkadia on the way and get your questions answered.
PM me if you'd like me to swing by and pick you up, or for more info.
