Thank you Martin-Baker for your superior craftsmanship and commitment to excellence, without it I would not be here today to tell my story. On May 10th 2019 I was flying my 6th training sortie in a T-45 Goshawk out of Kingsville TX. Shortly after take off, we experienced an engine failure in IMC conditions. With no other options and rapidly approaching the edge of the ejection envelope, we pulled the handle. The seat worked as advertised saving both myself and the instructors life.
We both went on to continue flying and become great friends. I was able to earn my wings of gold a short year after, all thanks to Martin-Baker. Thank you for saving my life and giving me the opportunity to achieve my dream of becoming a Naval Aviator.
