Martin-Baker is displaying its pilot and passenger crashworthy helicopter seats which were recently selected by Sikorsky for civil and military versions of its S-92 Helibus. Deliveries of the seats, which are designed to meet latest crash impact attenuation standards, will begin in 1997, says the company. Although best known for its combat-aircraft ejection seats, Martin-Baker has been manufacturing crashworthy helicopter seats for over 15 years. They are installed in the Agusta 129 Mongoose, Eurocopter Tiger and EH Industries EH101 Merlin, and have also been selected for the NH Industries NH90.
