What is GS on flight plan?

Acceleration is described in units of the force called “Gs.” A pilot in a steep turn may experience forces of acceleration equivalent to many times the force of gravity. This is especially true in military fighter jets and high-performance, aerobatic aircraft where the acceleration forces may be as high as 9 Gs.

### How many Gs do fighter pilots experience?

Fighter pilots can handle greater head-to-toe G forces—up to 8 or 9 G’s—and for longer periods by wearing anti-G suits. These specialized outfits use air bladders to constrict the legs and abdomen during high G’s to keep blood in the upper body.

How many g’s is a plane takeoff?

0.4g
When the lift of an aircraft is greater than the force of gravity, controlled flight becomes possible as the Wright Brothers demonstrated to the world in 1903. On a normal flight, at take off the g force is around 0.4g.

#### What is a Navlog?

Now, fold along the center crease such that the page with the large “notes” section in the center is the “cover” of your “book.”
