g-force trainer in Malans CH
Air Turquoise and Flugsau were the lucky ones to be the first who tried the g-force trainer IN Switzerland. We were there to check the "new toy" of Fliehchraft and what to do with it when it comes to security of our sport, paragliding. This toy have many potentials and we got many great ideas after a small brainstorming. AND of course we had to try it.
Well, first it wasn't my intention to try it because my stomach is very sensitive for rotations (one of the reasons why I never do acro). The others persuaded me and convinced me it was just pure fun.
For the first part I did maximum 1.5 g's and was perfectly happy about that! It wasn't that fun... I felt a bit dizzy and my stomach could have been better. After the lunch and new briefing we went through the second part which also contains breathing exercises. Haaaah, with good breathing technique I did 4g's. Wow wow wow, I never ever thought it was possible for me. Afterwards, I think I could done more, but I got very tired after the training for 4g's, so maybe next time. Andre and Urs did 7g's, they did it very well!!!
I don't know, but I think g-force is addictive? Now I just want more and more! IT IS PURE FUN!!!
Some of the ideas what can be done with this training system;
o To endure the g-force in spirals
o To recognize the "black-out" (to know your limits)
o the body position
o the breathing
o throw the rescue when g-force
o for testing purposes (about that later)
o and of course ...fun
Thank you Fliehchraft for the nice concept and I think important for pilots.
