The He was equipped with a compressed-air powered ejection seat , the first aircraft to carry one and the first aircraft to successfully employ one in an emergency. Bad weather caused the aircraft to ice up, and before the jets could be tested, pilot Helmut Schenk became the first person to put an ejection seat to use. The Heinkel He was the first turbojet -powered fighter aircraft in the world. In the meantime, alternative powerplants were considered, including the Argus As pulsejet that powered the V-1 flying bomb. Over the next year, progress was slow due to the ongoing engine problems. It was inspired by Ernst Heinkel ‘s emphasis on research into high-speed flight and built on the company’s experience with the He jet prototype.

On 22 Septemberwhile work on the engine continued, the first prototype started glide tests with ballasted pods hung in place of its engines. By the end ofhowever, the third prototype was fitted with refined versions of the HeS 8 engine and was ready for its next demonstration.

The type was then demonstrated to Ernst Udethead of RLM’s development wing, on 5 April, but like its predecessor, it abs failed to make an impression.
