AmSafe Seatbelt Airbags are now available for the pilot and co-pilot seats on Baron and Bonanza aircraft.
Hawker Beechcraft Corp.’s (HBC) parts and distribution organization, RAPID, is taking orders for the airbags, which can be installed at any AmSafe approved service center.
Statistics show that most crash events are survivable, especially when head and neck injuries are minimized. The AmSafe Seatbelt Airbags for the Baron and Bonanza are self-contained, modular restraints designed to protect occupants from serious head-impact injury and enhance one’s ability to exit an aircraft following a survivable accident. Integrated into the lap belt portion of the seatbelt, the AmSafe Seatbelt Airbag inflates in less than 90 milliseconds and, unlike automotive airbags, safely deploys up and away from the occupant, making it a safe restraint for passengers of all ages, according to company officials.
