Mrs. Michelle Hunt visited with our engineering students today, sharing with them her role in making the pilot experience as safe as possible and manageable. She works on a team that analyzes and works to improve the ejection process. Students watched video clips of simulated and actual ejections, as well as training videos of pilots riding in simulators applying 9 Gs of force on their bodies.
