Ejector seat TFA

The ejector seat of a TIE/sf space superiority fighter

An ejector seat was a seat designed to forcibly eject the occupant clear of an starship during an in-flight emergency. During the Rebellion on Akiva, the New Republic starfighter pilot Norra Wexley discovered that the Galactic Empire's TIE fighters did indeed carry ejector seats. She was able to eject to safety after her stolen TIE was hit by turbolaser fire.[1]

The TIE/sf space superiority fighters used by the First Order were equipped with such seats. Those included an explosive launcher mechanism, and emergency rations beneath the seat.[2]
