If the sim does not support the pilot being an active player/participant after ejection, then it is not relevant (to the sim) whether you could survive or not.

This is the story of Brian Udell who punched out at more than 760kts...

I've met him. His bravery is surpassed only by his humbleness.

I think that's the guy referred to in the original post...

I think that's the point he was making


As Chiclidfan says though, unless you can re-enter an aircraft without exiting the sim, it only really matters for your log-book & your personal satisfaction at not having died (riding the silk down)...

in the SR-71 example. I think the guy who died ejected. and the guy who survived didn't eject. and survived the total disintegration of the aircraft without a scratch.
to find himself in freefall.

There seem to be 2 occasions where SR-71s crashed after engine unstarts in a bank.

In one both pilots survived ejection, one drowned on landing in water, the other survived.

In the other the nose was ripped off the aircraft and both pilots were thrown out rather than ejecting.
One's neck broke, the other landed safely.

yes its a documentary

has interviews with a few guys who survived mach ejection.

OK, how would you feel if pilots die if they exceed the design limits of the seat ?

So:
NATO pilots die at greater than 600 KEAS &/or Greater than 50,000 feet
WARSAW pilots die at greater than 755 KEAS &/or Greater than 80,000 feet

That would be like 0.5% of all ejections.
Is it worth coding that ?

?
