That's what they have in all current fighters - except the F-22. And amen to that Albie, however, I'm ejoying teaching IFF. And BTW, the T-38 is getting a new seat...we're getting it this summer. Supposedly a very good seat...no chute, just the harness. Much mo' better for the neck on DBFM in the mighty smurf.

F-22 is improved ACES. F-35 has the Martin-Baker. I think you guys are getting a similar M-B seat like the F-35 has.

ummmmm.......yeah.......

as interesting as all this cool fighter pilot ejection seat information is......

and, while the original poster did mention he was currently on mil leave......

I'm pretty sure the topic was what's the best seat AT FEDEX to take when he comes back to FEDEX - from the mil leave

not which military fighter (or trainer) currently has the best ejection seat

talk about a thread hijacking...
