Centrifuge/G-Force Training 7.6 G

Think you better drive a tank instead lol

Becoming a military pilot is a formidable physical and psychological challenge. Those hoping to fly fighter jets must prove their ability to withstand a high level of G-forces, or the equivalent of the force of gravity multiplied.

That’s why fighter pilots-in-training have to spend some time in a centrifuge to prove they can handle the pressure.

“Essentially, you are placed in a chamber that is on the end of a long arm that spins around the room — the faster it spins, the more G-forces you feel on your body,” Jack Stewart, an active pilot with over 2,000 hours of experience in jet aircraft, wrote in an email to Business Insider. “Yes, it feels like weight is pushing down on every part of you.”
