The decision to fly the last high aspect set, when the fuel state is approaching joker and the jet can accelerate at high speeds must be based on the G-tolerance the pilots are experiencing that day.
A consistent fitness program delivers demonstrated benefits for G-tolerance and sustained performance: High-intensity strength training increases your ability to withstand high G-forces for a longer period of time, while moderate aerobic training decreases the recovery time needed between engagements and sorties.
If you're dehydrated, your G-tolerance can be reduced up to 50 percent (4).
We said we'd only cover a few of the factors impacting your G-tolerance and potential for GLOC.
Also crews experienced a 9% decrease in resting G-tolerance when they were not wearing CE under these dehydrating hot conditions.
Since we will fly with some level of dehydration, the data shows that we are better protected with CE than without for G-tolerance.
With this in mind, it is important to note that CE was fielded mainly for sustained G-tolerance, not upper end tolerance.
