nope all single seater hawks mate, they do have a twin seat trainer which they borrow from valley, but you usually have to work for blue peter to get on one.

I had the sound off, but what a sissy. They couldn't have been pulling more than 4 or 5 G's.

According to him in scene 3 they pulled 7.5 the second time he passed out.

I'm pretty sure that 7.5 would put me on my ass too.

7.5 would put most anyone out, but I think he's lying.

Fat? Venom eats little guys like him for breakfast.

If venom was in an airplane that tried to pull 7.5 Gs the wings would snap off.

7.5 G is alot, but possible in the sharp turn he did i would have thought.
Thing im not sure about is the G-Suit situation, i know that either the UK or the US only provide the tunic and not the 2 piece suit, which makes it easier to resist G. I think it's the US which makes no sense considering the comparison in defence budget, but then US Military NBC protection is woeful in comparison to ours.

Apparently women handle G better than men as well, there is a physiological reason for this but i forget what it is.

The real military pilots have the full suit. Not sure they had one for the passenger though.

Women and men generally have similar levels of G tolerance.

On the plus side for women: they're shorter, so the blood pressure required to keep the brain supplied is lower

On the minus side for women: they have less muscle as a percent of body weight than men do, so their G-resistance flexes are less effective. Apparently the two balance each other out.

A short, heavily muscled man would be the best for G-tolerance

Yeah, except that you'd probably have to shave them to keep their hair from fouling the electronics
