Post SS1 simulator?   Posted on: Thu Oct 07, 2004 2:30 pm
Read in the pilots bio on http://www.scaled.com/projects/tierone/siebold.htm that one of them had designed the
simulator for SS1.
Anyone knows anything about this simulator? How many Gs are possible to
get in it?

If you are talking about THIS SIMULATOR then I believe the answer is 1 G.

Of course you may be talking about some other simulator.

Well for some aspects the White Knight had been used as a simulator for SS1. Now I don't know how many Gs you could reasonably expect to pull in the White Knight (cue Franklin, he may actually know this).

Although if you slam it straight into the ground I imagine you could work up quite a few.

i think sigurd finally banned franklin. you're probably right about the slamming it into the ground. you'd probably get a good several hundred if you didn't tear the plane apart from trying to get too fast. :lol:
