FAQ

What are the retaining straps for?

Often passengers are looking for support during take-offs. The retaining straps placed next to the main suspension, allow passengers to get hold of something, thus provide a feeling of safety. Additonally it makes it easier for passengers, to find a suitable seating position.

The protector does only cover the bottom side below seat board. Is that size sufficient?

Yes, it protects the spine from axial compression. Behind the passenger there's the pilot protecting the passenger's back part. Thus the pilot is provided with ideal seating comfort, especially when using a soft spreader.

Which protector is better to use - foam or airbag protector?

The protection provided by both, airbag as well as foam protector, is adequate. For commercial tandem pilots we clearly advise to use the foam protector, because it is more robust against damages caused by "bottom landings". And its bottom is reinforced with replaceable PVC.
