Abstract
Push-pull effect has been defined as decreased +Gz tolerance resulting from preceding relative -Gz. It has been identified in laboratory and in-flight studies, but little is known about the operational incidence of push-pull effect within the Canadian Forces (CF). In order to enhance our knowledge, a review of CF Boards Of Inquiry (BOIs), Aircraft Accident Incident Reports (AAIR) and Flight Safety Summary Investigations (FSII) was initiated to determine if push-pull effect was causal in any previous aircraft accidents.
