Founder Pavel Sukhoi, being no friend of Stalin and seeing his business dissolve for a period of time, reappeared gloriously again in the year 1950 when the majority of his products were widely used by the Soviet Union and its allies.

G-LOC is known as G-force Loss Of Consciousness caused by spending a period of time in acceleration or G's.

Our brain is the most important organ of our body, and besides also being that which pays the gas bills to fly, it is the most essential component within the aerobatic plane.
