This invention relates to an apparatus for simulating the loads acting on the arms of an aircraft pilot under high G conditions including a first torque motor of pancake-like configuration attached to the flight suit near the elbow area of the pilot. A second torque motor positioned near the pilots waist operated through a tether line to apply a force to the shoulder of the pilot. With both torque motors operating, the upper and lower arms of the pilot are loaded in a manner to simulate the effect of acceleration loading of primary consequence, Gz. Author
