Airbag Now Available for Aviation Retrofit


Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
AmSafe
: 21 April, 2008  (New Product)
AmSafe a provider of safety products to the aviation, defense and ground transportation markets, has announced plans for the aftermarket distribution of its airbag system, the AmSafe Aviation Inflatable Restraint (AAIR(R)), to general aviation customers worldwide.
Working with a number of OEMs and independent operators, AmSafe has assembled a network of authorized service centers with operations at over 450 locations around the globe to sell, install and service its aviation airbag system.

'Over the past few years we've seen many general aviation manufacturers embrace our airbag system, making it standard equipment on new aircraft,' said Bill Hagan, president of AmSafe Aviation. 'Given the growing demand by pilots for aftermarket installation of the AAIR, we've worked hard to establish this network of service centers in order to make this life-saving technology more readily available for legacy aircraft models.'

The recent addition of the Cessna Aircraft Service Center Network greatly expands AmSafe's reach. As part of the agreement with Cessna, each authorized service center will be able to install the AmSafe Airbag system on a wide range of aircraft models manufactured by Cessna and by other OEMs.

Along with Cessna Aircraft Company, AmSafe has also authorized service centers to install and support the AmSafe Airbag system for OEMs such as Cirrus Design Corporation, Diamond Aircraft Industries Incorporated and Mooney Airplane Company.

'The launch of our service center network opens up an entirely new market segment for AmSafe and we anticipate making significant penetration of the retrofit market over the next few years,' Hagan added. 'Our goal is to make our airbag system available for as many general aviation aircraft as possible. It is a life-saving product that has been credited with saving the lives of pilots and co-pilots.'
