The FAA issued proposed special conditions for certification of AmSafe inflatable seatbelts, which will help the company obtain STCs in additional general aviation airplanes. The comment period on the proposal ends May 22. Phoenix-based AmSafe also said it is discussing with OEMs application of inflatable seatbelts on business jet divans, to make them approvable for takeoff and landing. AmSafe said it has delivered more than 10,000 inflatable seatbelts to airliners. Adam Aircraft has selected the system for the cockpit seats in its A700 VLJ.
