AmSafe can also retrofit most older aircraft with this state-of-the-art airbag technology. Since being fielded, the AmSafe Seatbelt Airbag System has saved dozens of lives and prevented countless injuries.
Designed to protect
Continually evolving and advancing aviation occupant safety requirements need the most advanced restraint systems to meet compliance. The AmSafe Seatbelt Airbag System is used in commercial aircraft to protect occupants from impact with bulkheads, monitors and forward seat structure. Business Jet and high end turboprop aircraft use the seatbelt airbag system to protect pilots, co-pilots and passengers. The system is used in general aviation aircraft in the pilot, co-pilots seat to protect occupants from impact with glare shields, instrument panels and control yokes, as well as passengers from forward impact. The AmSafe Seatbelt Airbag looks and operates like a standard seatbelt. The airbag is stored in the lap belt portion of the 2- and 3-point restraints and in the shoulder-harness section of the 4- and 5-point systems.
When the sensors detect an impending incident, the seatbelt airbag deploys up and away from the seated passenger – adults and children, large and small – and provides protection to the head, neck and torso. The AmSafe Seatbelt Airbag helps meet the 14 CFR Part 25.562 requirements for pilots and passengers in commercial aircraft, and 14 CFR Part 23.562 26g requirements in general aviation pilot / co-pilot seats. The system provides the additional safety needed in a survivable impact.
