Yep, I've been ejected clean out of a Phantom 18 along with the driver. The only guy that stayed in broke two ribs 'coz it was hard.

so when was he banned, i thought he retired from rib net . the truth is you can fall out of any boat,but in a rib your sat on it rather than in it,so from that i would think it could be easier to fall out,depending what speed your doing,and what unexpected situations arise

No but the instroctor must be in controll at all times and so will ussually sit/stand as close to throtle as possibble.

From the original post, it sounds like the kid wasnt wearing his kill chord??
