Testing G-suits

New anti-g suits were received and somebody had to test their compatibility and functionality. Nough’ said. Jumped in the L-39 with Bjarni and pulled some g’s. Suits worked as a charm and had great fun, even if sometimes I didn’t enjoy the pressure on my stomach (photo below). Look out for the inflating parts, as well as the flow over the wing.
A short report was written on the evaluation of the G-suits including operational recommendations.
