Me getting strapped into the ejection seat trainer. One person on each side to make sure that you are in properly. After you are strapped in the person in front (the person in white) lowers you down into the "cockpit." Your head ends up slightly above the foot level of the straper-inners. After we were all strapped in and in the cockpit we were given the signal to eject. "Eject, eject, eject!" Put your head back, your chin up, your elbows in and pull the handle. We were then shot up on the rails about 15 or 20 feet. They say it was about 20% of the force of a real ejection, but I can tell you that it was still quite a kick in the pants.
