Description / Abstract:
This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) contains information that can be used by the air transportation industry to provide passengers in forward facing seats, using lap belt restraints only, with consistent "brace for impact" positions. This information is intended to reduce the potential confusion passengers may experience upon being presented with different "brace for impact" positions as they travel on different aircraft or on different carriers. This document does not address child restraint, situations where adult passengers are seated behind fixed tables, or who are using upper-torso restraint, or where passengers are not seated in forward facing seats.
