Treating airline passengers to high-G maneuvers

Recommended Posts

I wonder if the airlines would charge an extra fee if pilots were to perform takeoffs and breaks like this  :biggrin:

I don't think will cost extra, but I suppose with full load of fuel and the extra weight of passengers+luggage this will be not so nimble.

Regardless, they could count me in anytime for a ride like that.

Thanks for sharing.

Years ago a friend of mine invited me when he had to qualify on the KLM Airbus A 310 and we did touch & go's at Lille Seclin the whole afternoon. Plane got lighter and lighter , must have burned more than 20 tons of fuel (out of a total of 38 tons) , no passengers, no luggage, resulting in quite steep take off's in the end.....  :biggrin:

How many G's is high g's in this case. Probably not much more than 2.5 or maybe 3 ?
