"I thought to myself, flying with the full-coverage G-suit
Huge G-force - gravitational pull - was draining blood from their heads and swelling their feet, and the pilots' ordinary G-suits
did not work properly in the new plane.
With full flight gear, including G-suit
and harness, I was ready to walk to the plane with my instructor pilot.
Kayani, at the age of 58, clad in G-Suit
as a PAFs fighter pilot embarked upon a mission from an Operational Air Base of the country on Monday.
Check the G-suit
connection in the cockpit and perform ops test.
There are about 90 items of flight gear that Ridling maintains, including the parachute, torso harness, seat pan, G-suit
, M-1, L-1, hook maneuver, and anti-G straining maneuver (AGSM) are all aimed at preventing blood pooling and stagnant hypoxia.
The person sprinting toward the F-15 isn't dressed in flight gear (no G-suit
, survival vest or helmet), nor is any of this gear visible on or near the aircraft.
While the airframe is capable of pulling multiple Gs - the gravitational force exerted on a body when standing on the Earth at sea level - the maxim safe level for a pilot, even when wearing a protective G-suit
, is 8 or 9, above which they will lose consciousness.
