DUSAUTOIR & Les Ailes de Pégase in the skies

The rugby-union star Thierry DUSAUTOIR is Rugby union ball between the poles seated in a child’s dream – flying with a fighter pilot who is no other than Laurent Pons, the aeronautical association Les ailes de Pegase’s president near Bordeaux. This association proposes various events linked to aeronautics. Les Ailes de Pegase is fielded with L-39s or Albatros jet fighters.

You can see the elite athlete suffering a bit in the last part of this superb video while the experienced pilot keeps speaking, unflinching for he has to remain focused on both his VIP PAX, and either the loop to come or other tight

turns and barrels. He sounds like a pilot who has no G-lock as his voice sounds normal. See what the pilots look like between 5 Gs and 7 Gs (click here), and you will get what I mean.
