The loads imposed on aircraft maneuvering, gusts, landing, taxiing, firing of weapons, etc., as opposed to static loads. A dynamic load is equal to the apparent weight of the entire loaded aircraft. For example, an aircraft turning with 60° bank turn will experience a 2 g force, and the apparent weight of the aircraft, or its dynamic load, will be twice its weight.
