Two different versions...

The Americans put explosive bolts on Huey's, so they could blow the blades off in the event of an emergency. I don't know why they never went through with it.

The Russians blow the pilot out of the side of the KA-50 Hocum(aka Werewolf).

I know two pilots who JUMPED out of their UH-1 in Vietnam with parachutes and survived.

to noworries' comment... yes i've heard of the exploding bolts on today's modern fighter helicopters... the blades literally blast off the helicopter within seconds and the pilot(s) is (are) ejected upward, like in a fighter jet.

by the way.. here's a picture of that russian "werewolf" helicopter
-very strange lookin' craft

Are there any helicopters with ejection seats?

Yes. The Russian Zvezda K-37 seat system was specifically developed for use in the Kaman Ka-50 Black Shark, and is also used in the Ka-52 Alligator attack helicopter. The seat is more of a tractor rocket system than a full ejection seat, but it does provide for escape from the helicopter. The system first fires explosive bolts to jettison the rotor blades then jettisons the canopies and finally tractors the crewmen out. Their parachutes automatically deploy seconds later. In the United States, some work was done on a similar concept using an AH-1 Cobra helicopter, and a crew module system was tested on an H-21. Neither was followed up on. Smile
