The G-Force trainer is a centrifugal force simulator that was developed for the further training of paraglider pilots.

the big advantage

You no longer need to be afraid of the initiation of the spiral and an uncertain outcome. You also don’t need to be 1,000 meters below you and can fully concentrate on the exercises.

Training goals:

Safe handling of G-forces

Learning the breathing movement tension techniques

Controlling and controlling the G-force in a spiral

In this context, we would like to point out that it is not just about “how much G I can take”, but how a spiral actually feels. What am I doing right and what is wrong and above all, “How do I actually initiate a spiral with the right technique and, above all, in the border area again?”.

The training program on the “G-Force Trainer” is divided into the following sections:

Theoretical basics
Danger and technical instruction on the training device
Simulator training with increasing G-load with individual adjustment to the pilot and learning anti-G-straining.

Learning the movement sequences for initiating and exiting the spiral dive with error analysis
Optimization of harness settings (if necessary)
Getting to know the physical limits up to the beginning

Expanding the limits with the technique “Anti-G-Straining Maneuver”
Deployment of the rescue parachute from your own harness at high G loads (4G).
Evaluation with debriefing
Video analysis and film contribution of your training on request

The benefits of simulator training

Learning under real but controlled conditions.
Limiting the maximum G-load to any value.
Preparation and practice of processes in difficult emergency situations (danger of blackout in the case of unintentionally caused centrifugal loads, e.g. spiral fall after a cravat or collision).

Observation from close up: Errors or carelessness in the stressful situation do not remain hidden and can thus be corrected and consolidated in the process.

The rescue release can be safely tested/checked.
You can also learn to control your body movements in connection with your belt without being disturbed.
