The ACCEL
scale displays vehicle drag acceleration, which is the deceleration along the flight path, normal acceleration, which is acceleration in the normal axis, or total load factor. This is a moving tape upon which acceleration is read at the fixed lubber line. The tape range is –50 to +100 with a scale change at zero feet per second squared. Minus signs are assumed on the ACCEL scale also; the negative region has a black background and the positive side has a white background. (Normal acceleration and total load factor are measured in g’s, with 10 equal to 1 g, 20 equal to 2 g’s, etc.)
