The RAF confirmed the pilot was ejected from a Hawk T1 jet while it was on the ground at RAF Scampton.
The Military Aviation Authority is carrying out an independent inquiry to determine the cause of the incident.
The RAF said its thoughts were with the pilot's family. It confirmed Red Arrows training had been suspended, but that RAF's Hawk T1 fleet would still fly.
The pilot's family has asked for a period of grace until his name is released.
