Effective personnel restraint systems incorporating upper torso restraint have been developed for general aviation. These systems stress safety, comfort, economy, ease of installation, and generation of user confidence. Inertia or force sensing reels and single point buckles are integral parts of the systems. The system for personal and private flying adds comfort and convenience to the familiar automotive type harness, while the system for business aircraft or other aircraft with structural seats utilizes the experience gained on thousands of commercial transport aircraft.
