View Full Version : Plane aerodynamics 'freeze' during pilot blackout

Since trying out the spit 'blackouts' are a common occurrence, but strangely the whole aircraft seems to suffer a blackout too!
The aircraft attitude doesn't change during the blackout even a speed increasing nosedive doesn't seem to produce the expected increase in lift and the plane hurtles downward regardless, as the pilot recovers, the laws of physics are reinstated.
Also, if the 'blacked out' aircraft no longer responds to control inputs or physics how come I can still operate the flaps?
