Pulling over 3+ Gs!

Wow, if anyone here has been to the extreme and pulled over 3 Gs in a plane my hats off to you. I did this today gliding and it was AWESOME. At one point we did a zero G curve and everything in the cockpit was suspended in air. I am hooked! I'll hopefully have my license for the spring of '09 season.

Sounds like fun Andrew! I did 5 Gs a couple of months ago in S'pore on one of those reverse bungies. It was like astronaut training, very cool!

pulling 3 G's is easy. You just have to jump from an appropriate height and land flat on your back. I could calculate with just math how high... but I'm lazy because I just got back from a swim
