I know that fighter pilots, wearing g-suits, train extensively to handle the g forces. The pull of 4 or 5 g's can present a "very difficult environment' in which to function. What sort of training could possibly be offered to pilots to learn to cope with 14 g's? Do we really train our pilots to fly while unconscious?

No one inside of a gravity field could survive moving at 14 Mach. Getting shot out of a plane with the emergency seat already causes a pressure of up to 70g which is enough to break most pilot's bones who do that. So aslong as a plane has no antigravitation field or something like that. Already while accelerating the pilots and the entire plane would be crushed to the size of a pizza ( and i know this is an unrealistic example but it shows what i mean). They would have to get the crew out of the plane looking like mud (litteraly)
