The Kamov Ka 52 helicopter ejection system sounds more like some Rube Goldberg, Wile E. Coyote nonsense, but low and behold, it was the first helicopter designed to have an ejection seat. The system even blows up the spinning blades just before firing off. Granted it's a lot better than launching a pilot straight into a blender, the engineering involved in shooting someone out of a helicopter is... a lot.
