Goodrich Corporation will display its latest Advanced Concept
Ejection Seat (ACES) 5 ejection seat at the 2010 Farnborough
Airshow. Visit the company's pavilion outside OE4, located
between hall 1 and chalet rows A and B.
ACES 5 builds on the legacy ACES II ejection seat's unique
stability package, lower life cycle costs, and proven safety
5 incorporates new safety enhancements with passive leg
and arm restraints, and a patented passive head and neck
protection system that accommodates all male and female
pilot classes. In addition, the seat's modular design allows
maintenance personnel to remove it from the aircraft in
sections, eliminating the need to remove the aircraft's
canopy or escape hatch; this reduces manpower required,
saves money, and increases aircraft availability.
