Ejection Tie Club

Here at Martin-Baker, we run an exclusive club that unifies all pilots whose lives we’ve helped save: life membership of the Ejection Tie Club is confined solely to those who have emergency ejected from an aircraft using a Martin-Baker ejection seat, which has thereby saved their life.

Hugo Kuehne

On 15th Dec 1977 I ejected at very low altitude just a few seconds before the aircraft hit the ground in the Swiss Alps. I came down about     10 meters short of the impact point of the aircraft. The ejection seat was found amid the debris of what was once a Hawker Hunter.

Thanks to Martin-Baker I received additional lifetime with family, children and grand-children and a fulfilling career as Air Force and Commercial pilot.

Thank you all. Martin-Baker does a wonderful job.
