If your are holding right rudder then you will need to hold some left aileron and some down elevator. Too much elevator you will go upline and not enough you will go into the ground. Not enough left aileron while holding right rudder you will roll right, too much aileron you will roll the other way. Vise versa.

There was a segment on Stan lee's super humans about the g forces in an aerobatic plane. The pilot could withstand 12 g's without a g suit. They hit the 12 g's going full throttle then pulling hard strait up.

It's all about breathing technique and how long the acceleration is sustained for. Anyone can handle high g's for an extremely short period of time, beyond that it's about maintaining blood in your head to keep conscious.

Skip stewart does not use a G suit, nor do the blue angels, nor do the red bull race pilots. The USAF Thunderbirds do though.

not quite... good aerobatic plane shouldnt want to roll with rudder

hurricane is banked circle where the rudder is pointing the nose towards the ground... only keeping the plane aloft by adding more elevator and managing your bank angle. it's relatively dangerous as you're riding a snap condition and managing an unfamiliar attitude

i was wrong on the g #'s i was quoting airframe....Skip Steward pulls +12 - 7 during his airshows... I am by no means saying that your 65 year old C172 pilot is going to pull more than 3 G's... but thanks for the sharpshooting. I for one do not like being in a plane, helicopter or anyother flying machine that is doing much more than 3-4... its just not fun

The max the blue angels pull during their show is 7.5g because of the limitations of the F-18 where the F-16 can go upwards of 9.5 g's. Also where the stick is located on the F-18 their more prone the the g suit affecting stick movements. Where that is not a problem on the F-16 with the sidestick.

The Blue Angels limit g's to 7.5 because they don't wear g-suits. They fly the Hornet which is capable of 9 g's. (It is the Super Hornet that is limited to 7.5 g's.)
