Martin-Baker to Receive Spirit of Flight Award

The Board of Trustees of the National Aviation Hall of Fame (NAHF) has announced that its 2019 Spirit of Flight Award will be presented to Martin-Baker Aircraft Company Limited (MBA) during the 57th Annual Enshrinement Dinner & Ceremony to be held in Denver, CO, at Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum in late September.

The Spirit of Flight Award qualifications include organizations that serve a special need of the nation and set high standards for excellence in the utilization of aerospace assets. Martin-Baker will be presented the award for setting the standard for ejection and crashworthy seats. MBA’s seats have saved over 7500 people around the world. Of those, over 2,500 American Airmen were saved during Vietnam using MBA ejection seats, and since that time another 1,000 Americans have ejected in a variety of aircra and have been safely returned to their families.
