The first new Cessna 172 and Cessna 182 equipped with AmSafe airbags as standard equipment have been delivered to customers in Texas and California. The first 172 with AmSafe Aviation Inflatable Restraints was delivered to Midland College, where it will be used in the school’s professional pilot program. The first 182 with airbags was delivered to Central California Aviation, a Cessna dealer and authorized maintenance facility.
The airbag is standard equipment in all 2005 Cessna 172s, 182s and 206s. The airbags also are available as retrofit kits for all single-engine Cessnas built in 1997 or later.
