What is the Punishment for Emergency Ejection? #shorts

Ever wonder if pilots get punished for ejecting from aircraft? After all airplanes are expensive and what if the pilots prematurely abandoned the vessel? #shorts

    This was a very fuckoff roundabout way to say no, who the fuck would punish a pilot for having to eject in a dangerous situation?? Planes are replaceable, but lives aren't, even if the pilot gets hurt from the ejection and can't fly again

    ill tell you one thing thats nuts is any jet with a back seat has an ejection handle in the back as well and one time a journalist was taking a ride and grabbed it after a crazy maneuver and thats all it took. luckily for some reason it halfway malfunctioned and the pilot was not ejected so he did land the jet but the journalist got launched out. i can understand wanting to be able to pull it fast but some type a safety might be a good idea for passengers.

    “Punishment” isn’t the best word to use. Punishment implies you’re being punished because you did something negative or bad. Pulling the emergency eject handle isn’t necessarily bad. “Consequences” is a better word because it just implies that there was a result, usually bad, after doing another thing. “Ban” isn’t a good word either because it implies there’s someone forbidding you from flying planes, when it’s just your health condition that bans you. Although you did say “medically ban” later, you didn’t initially do the meaning sounds awkward. Maybe “prevent” would be the better word.

    Most pilots can squeeze out more flights after an ejection assuming they weren’t at fault No one is permanently grounded because of an ejection, especially not in modern times where pilots are considered one of the most valuable assets to maintaining readiness, there’s a whole slew of evaluations you through after you punch out and if you fail those THEN you’re grounded Even if you do get to fly again, if you were to have another accident the damage to the spine after multiple ejections won’t be able to go unnoticed

    I've watched this happen as an aircraft firefighter. Spoke with the man shortly after; to get his patch.. It's bad- but not as dramatic as anything in the video or top comments are suggesting. I thought they could punch 3 times before their spine was no good; and was understanding that a pilot was compressed a little under an inch each time. The value of the craft was the minor factor on them flying again.
