Child Restraint Systems and Airline Travel

Preparing to travel with your child on an airliner can involve decision making loaded with practical and economic decisions, with safety considerations complicating those decisions. Deciding when and how to use child safety restraints aboard the airliner can be daunting, particularly when already considering the use of an existing automotive safety seat.

The Aerospace Safety Committee of the Aerospace Medical Association reviewed the available literature on this topic and has prepared a detailed paper titled Child Restraint Systems and Airline Travel.  This paper is designed to provide you the best information available when considering the best child restraint system for your child.

A handy two-page Child Restraints Brochure is also available.  This brochure is designed to be printed and carried with you during your travels to provide an easy reference guide.
