I used this as cover art for a story I wrote in fimfiction. I linked the source to you, my apologies for not asking. I hope you don't mind!

Yes. Modern fighter aircraft can reach altitudes of 60,000 feet or more. At that altitude, water boils at mammalian body temperatures. You'll die no matter how efficient your lungs are. Pegasi's fast metabolism would probably only make them pass out faster.

At above 50,000 feet, humans need to wear a pressure suit as well as a mask, because even breathing pure oxygen we can't get enough to survive at ambient pressure, and our lungs are too weak to withstand more than a tiny pressure difference. However, if you can withstand the dynamic pressure at Mach 1 and sea level, you could probably breathe in a vacuum with an oyxgen mask (or under about 10 meters of water with a long snorkel).

We can't go up there without those or we'll die.

Human's can't fly like us Pegasi, Rainbow; they need HUGE-ASS flying machines to do what comes naturally for us...

You know Dashie, some mammals don't have avian lungs, allowing them to breath diluted air.
And still... adds minimum +5 to awesomeness!

you know you can get extremely stoned during a dog fight , that neccesary tensing of suit , the speed and extra dense oxygen.. most pilots feel or sense a detachment ... all that mixed with adrenaline :D

yes, you CAN get high on too much oxygen; they mix it with a little nitrogen to balance it out.

Glad to finally meet you at B-Con. It was good that we got you introduced to Black Gryphon as well and that Lee Tockar took an interest in your work. If you need the info on his business card since you're phone got "lobotamized" by it let me know.

 

Make sure to keep in touch and I hope to meet up with you again at next year's B-Con if we get the chance.

I found this image some time ago on a fighter pilot blog, thought it was awesome, and set it as my profile picture on Fimfiction. But now that I've found where it came from, I've realized I should probably make sure it's okay with you. I hope you don't mind, and I'll gladly put up a link to your page, but if you'd rather I didn't , I understand completely.

I can imagine pegasi making good pilots... they don't need any parachutes!

H.A.L.O. jumps would be a lot less risky.

I was just about to link this to you, but I see you already saw it. (But a reminder can't hurt.)

I hope to see you on the roster someday. I'd love to get my Wonderbolts poster signed by you at a KAFB airshow.
