Becoming a pilot in the military requires extensive training. In order to prevent g-induced Loss of Consciousness, aviators and astronauts are required to subject themselves to high levels of acceleration. As g-forces pull blood away from the brain, consciousness is lost. This training has proved to be valuable since the 1970s which has been validated by extensive research and literature.
This training has significantly increased what pilots and crews can do with high performance aircraft. Centrifuge training tests the reaction and the amount of tolerance pilots and astronauts withstand when accelerated above what acceleration normally is in Earth’s gravity.
