    Thanks to the Starrship team for arranging this! I'm also over on their channel, flying with the Blades: mnclip.info/iWY3-1gOrxk-%D0%B2%D0%B8%D0%B4%D0%B5%D0%BE.html • At the Royal Air Force training centrifuge in Farnbrough, pilots learn how to avoid G-LOC: g-induced loss of consciousness. Let's talk about g-force, about jerk, and about how to keep circulation flowing to your brain.
    FAQs:
    * Isn't 3.6g a really low g-tolerance? *
    Yep. Turns out I would not qualify to be a fighter pilot. The average range for g-tolerance is 4-6; no-one was expecting me to pass out. The centrifuge team do not deliberately try to G-LOC people! To be fair, though, I'd done a few earlier runs with only minor effects.
    * What g was the RAF person at the start pulling? *
    That's Marcus, from the Starrship team, and he was successfully pulling 6.5g with the help of g-trousers: they plug into a compressed air source in the plane (and in the centrifuge) and act as a lower-body tourniquet to keep the blood up top. They are very effective.
    * Why did you shake and shudder when regaining consciousness? *
    Those are called "myoclonic convulsions", which is a fancy medical term for "muscle jerks", and they're a common side effect of recovering from G-LOC.
    * What did it feel like? *
    I'll answer this in more detail in a video over on the Matt and Tom channel soon, but in short: I don't remember it. I was doing the breathing maneuver, then everything was wobbly, then we were stopped!
    * Is this a sponsored video? *
    No: the RAF and Starrship had no editorial control over this, and no money changed hands. Obviously, though, they gave me a spin in the centrifuge, and I'm collaborating with them over on their channel too!

    THANKS TO:
    The RAF Centre of Aviation Medicine, the Starrship team, and the folks at Qinetiq.

If you have questions (what did it feel like? why did you convulse? isn't 3.6g a really low tolerance?) pull down the description, I've answered a few there! And if you see someone ask a question that's in the description, please point them there.

@Pilot Omaha it's because smoking causes plaque to build up in your veins and arteries, which makes it harder for blood to travel through and therefore harder to pool in your body, keeping you conscious longer.

Let me tell you from personal experience the "fuge" sucks a lot worse than the jet. I did the 7.5g profile in the centrifuge but have pulled 9.0g in the jet, and even 6g in the fuge is worse. Something just doesn't feel right in the fuge. I think its because your feet are further away from the fulcrum so your feet feel more apparent g than your head, etc. Thats just a guess though, obviously I'm not a physicist or flight doc.
