Pilot Minute Video: Acceleration Tolerance
In the latest episode of the Pilot Minute video series, the FAA’s Federal Air Surgeon, Dr. Susan Northrup, covers internal and external factors affecting G-force induced loss of consciousness, or G-LOC, and how pilots can assess their readiness and tolerance using the preflight I’M SAFE personal checklist.
