Abstract:

The installation and use of shoulder harnesses is a practical and relatively inexpensive solution to the problem of maintaining separation between man and machine during an aircraft crash sequence. The addition of shoulder harness to the tiedown chain of the general aviation aircraft occupant will increase the probability of the user surviving a severe crash and minimize injuries resulting from light-to-moderate crashes.
