One of the mysteries of the English language finally explained.
A device that causes the ejection of a pilot from an aircraft, used in an emergency.
- ‘The aircraft is equipped with a new ejection seat and life support system.’
- ‘I had a routine system for checking the ejection seat, parachute and seat pan.’
- ‘At any rate, Mieras got out through the hole the ejection seat left.’
- ‘As his head began to clear, he grabbed his parachute and moved away from his ejection seat, leaving the rest of his survival kit behind.’
- ‘If it's not off of the aircraft, the ejection seat is designed with ‘canopy breakers’ to punch through it.’
- ‘The ejection seat was nothing like the guys have today.’
- ‘In my groggy state, I had strapped in without unpinning the ejection seat.’
- ‘I looked down to grab the pins for the ejection seat, and, when I looked back up, my instructor was on the deck, helmet in hand, talking to the crash crew.’
- ‘I climbed the ladder and started my ejection seat and cockpit preflight, then strapped in and started the normal startup checklist.’
- ‘It's the people who ride the ejection seat who should pull the pins.’
