Take a tight turn or climb in a high performance aircraft and
watch the numbers go up.

1G is normal gravity, which means, 100 pounds will weigh 100 pounds.

When you turn or climb, the G will go up. (If you've ever flown: when the airplane climbs, you get pushed into your seat.) 100 pounds will weigh 200 pounds with 2G.

Then again, if you descend, you get 'lifted' out of your seat. 100 pounds would be 50 at 0.5G

The G-forces show how much pressure is on your body. It's also good to see how comfortable your flying is. If you G is near 1.0 then your passengers arent being pushed into their seats and the next moment lifted out of them.

Doh,

I thought of that but didn't understand why MS
included a g force counter.

Thanks All

Interesting question. Perhaps a debug remnant? :-hmmm

I find that "G-meter" handy when I'm doing aerobatics, since I have no way to "feel" the G's, nor to feel the changing responses of the controls. It helps me to fly them a bit more realistically, and reduces the chances of overstressing the aircraft.
