Operational and Ejection Emergency Procedures
Further demonstrate the plotting process on the charts, using
random examples of airspeed and dive angle.
Ejection procedures 22.214.171.124.5.6, 126.96.36.199.3.2,
Communicate intentions to other cockpit, wing-
man, and ATC, if practicable
Ejection decision, in most cases, rests with
pilot-in-command and should be made before
sink rate and altitude conditions jeopardize safe
ejection for both pilots
If aircraft is controllable, head toward an area of
Ejection seat must be used to escape aircraft in
flight and canopy must be either closed and
locked or missing. If canopy fails to detonate,
seat will impact and shatter the canopy and
continue up the catapult rail.
WARNING: Ejection with the canopy in any
position other than fully closed and locked
is not recommended. Serious bodily injury
and seat malfunction may occur.
WARNING: Never actuate the emergency
restraint release before ejection. Actuation
of the handle releases the pilot from the seat
and moves the SAFE/ARMED handle to the
SAFE position, making ejection initiation by
the seat occupant impossible. Further, if
ejection is then initiated by the other
cockpit, both seats will be ejected with
probable fatal results.
