...Most fighter pilots that eject end up an inch or two or even more shorter after the ejection.

Helo's are inherently safer than aircraft however, because the rotors can be allowed to freewheel in the wind, acting like a parachute and allowing you to return to the ground in a (somewhat) safe maner. Local news actually caught footage of one of their choppers loosing power and falling onto a building. It didn't look like fun, but no one was hurt.
That's not to say a helicopter crash can't be fatal... especially if you crash 'cause someone's shooting at you.
