AmSafe, Inc., a provider of restraint products to the aviation markets, has confirmed the successful deployment of its AmSafe Aviation Inflatable Restraint system, which saved five lives in three separate accidents in the last four months. The accidents occurred in Wisconsin, Switzerland and Brazil. The restraint system is built directly into the seatbelts so that when the sensors detect an impending impact, the airbag is deployed, affording passengers of all sizes protection to the head, neck and torso. The airbag subsequently deflates within 10 seconds, enhancing chances for survival by allowing easier exit under emergency conditions. Certified by the FAA for installation on both GA aircraft and commercial airliners, the system is being installed on about 80% of all new single engine general aviation aircraft as standard or optional equipment by manufacturers such as Cessna, Cirrus and Mooney.
