Acceleration Physiology

Includes academic instruction and flights in a high-g centrifuge to train pilots to endure the high-G environment.

Acceleration Physiology Training Overview

This training program includes both academic instruction and flights in our ATFS-400 to train pilots to endure the High G environment. Flights of increasing G levels, including flights where the Pilot is in direct control, allows realistic G training in a flight environment. Pilots are monitored and coached in proper AGSM techniques until required G levels are attained. AMTI G training is conducted using our ATFS-400 or at your location using your centrifuge.

AMTI courses can be provided at the NASTAR Center (located just outside Philadelphia, PA) for those without the in-house equipment necessary to satisfy their training requirements. For more information about AMTI programs at the NASTAR Center please visit AMTI at the NASTAR Center
