View Full Version : Why does it take so long to bail out?

But only for me, not the AI. As soon as their canopy is
gone, they exit the a/c. Not me. Even in straight and level flight at a reasonable speed. I am not trying to debate
whether or not it is realistic, it just seems to me that if
they can get out in 2 seconds, I should be able to also.If this has been covered already in this forum, sorry. If this seems like a dumb question, sorry. Thank you for your time.

It depends on what your plane is doing, its best roll inverted and pop the canopy, should come right out.

The greater the Gs you're pulling, the harder it is to bail out. Try bailing out whilst flying straight and level and see if it's any quicker.

Ever try and undo all that harness equipment and then get out of a cramped area all the while falling like a rock to certain death, possibly spinning out of control and on fire?

It's amazing that as many pilots got out of the plane at all much less survived.

I think the pilot has to find his smokes and house keys so that would take some time ,it does for me /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Another thing may be pilot injury. Not sure though.

Maybe the stuka pilot can sneak through the hole in the bottom of the cocpit. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

I'm glad you've mentioned trying it inverted. Too many times when my plane is almost engulfed in flames, the canopy pops off but the pilot roasts. Now at least they might be able to drop from the canopy...and then drop to their death.

I think the AI pilots are the young and healthy types. You probably get a pilot who's in the same physical shape as me!

Yeah, I've noticed that too. Whenever I down a AI dude, they outta there before you can even stop shooting at the dude. Yet when I get shot down (very rare), my virtual self sits there fiddling with himself.

If you want to get out really fast get an ejector seat http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

If you're still in control, go into a steep climb (slows you right down, gives time for the chute to open), then bail out. The AI dies too, if they're going fast.
