IS THE RIDESAFER FAA APPROVED FOR USE ON AIRPLANES?

The current versions of the vests are not FAA approved for use on airplanes. FAA says it doesn’t fit into their categories so they have to rewrite some policies before the RideSafer can be approved. We have no idea how long that may take. The manufacturer may request an exemption in the meantime but even that could take some time. We do know it is high on his list of priorities to keeping pushing for airline use and he has a team of engineers working on it.

Since using the vest on an airplane would require something for upper body support in addition to the lap-only seat belt, the manufacturer developed an accessory that will be once the vest has FAA approval. Please check back for updates on our website for availability and if there will be retrofitting capabilities for the older versions.

If you decide to let your children sit in the airline seat without a car seat, the RideSafer is wonderful for keeping in your carryon and having available as soon as you reach your destination. Since our kids were 4 and 5 and started using the RideSafer, they attached it to their backpack and stuffed it under the airline seat.
