Very glad to see that there are people out there that care about aircraft
passenger safety. I myself made a thesis of the subject.
Couple of critical questions:
Have you figured out a mechanical process for ejecting the passenger/cargo compartment?
Have you seen the compartment ejection systems in use on the elint EF111,
and the B1B strike aircraft?
They use the same process. Are you the patent holder of this design
implemented in these aircraft?
Regards to you,
Looks like a good idea, with limited applications.
My question is how many crashes occur in which there is time and altitude to implement your ejection module method? If the plane flies into a mountain, it won’t help. If someone takes over the cockpit, it won’t help. If the plane explodes, it won’t help. If two planes collide in the air or on the ground, it won’t help.
How many lives will it save? What percentage of deaths from crashes will it stop?
How much will it cost?

Interesting ideas but beyond my scope - I focus on ground transportation
only - and it's a big task. The website looks good and I wish you luck in
getting some interest from the FAA or NASA.
