Main Question or Discussion Point

Here is a good one
The question reads
The max force a pilot can stand is about seven times his weight. What is the minimum radius of curvature that a jet plane's pilot, pulling out of a vertical dive, can tolerate at a speed of 250 m/s ?
Am I just crazy or is there not enuff info here to come up with a good answer.
Thanks tumbleweed

With training, and wearing an 'anti-g' suit, some pilots can withstand 11 'g' before passing out! (Hey, 7 'g' is good!)

In the Air Force, they now check applicants inherent genetic ability to withstand 'g' forces before training them up for the aircraft that pull 11 'g'. Only some people can ever cope with such stress.

Awesome!
