High G

This was a fascinating commission from last year :

The RAF High G Centrifuge training facility at RAF Cranwell.

The £44m project is used by fast jet pilots in the Royal Navy and Royal Air Force to replicate flight in aircraft such as the Hawk, Typhoon and new F-35 Lightning aircraft. Pilots are able to experience up to 9G Рnine times the normal gravitational pull of the Earth Рand learn how to use their specialist in-cockpit flying equipment to help them cope with these stresses. The centrifuge can accelerate up to 9G in one second and rotate up to 34 times a minute.
