 - December 14, 2007, 10:16 AM

Phoenix, Ariz.-based Amsafe Aviation has been selected to provide inflatable restraint systems for the pilot and copilot seats in the Adam A700 twin-engine very light jet currently in initial (non-conforming) flight-test and scheduled for certification next year. The restraints, installed as an integral part of each pilot’s lapbelt, are designed to inflate within milliseconds of a crash to protect against head and upper-body injuries.
