Preliminary Design Research for the Caravan 1 Crew Seat 850856

The Cessna Caravan 1 crew seat/restraint system incorporates many new design features. This system is the result of several iterations of development and evaluations using dynamic test procedures. The testing was done at the Protection and Survival Laboratory dynamic impact test track facility of the FAA Civil Aeromedical Institute. The recommendations of the General Aviation Safety Panel influenced the test procedures and pass/fail criteria for this project. Data from the dynamic tests provided valuable information on features of seat/restraint system design.
