AirBorn / Child seat for aircrafts


Based on research on international regulations and user observations, AirBorn offers a designed solution to the identified fact that none of the present ways for flying with infants are safe. By placing the infant in safer seating positions that protects the infant from impact with low-tech aircushions and secures the infants’ head at impact and during emergency evacuations. AirBorn offers three different seating modes that are both safe and comfortable for both infant and parent, to work in different aircraft seating layouts. In case of an evacuation on water, the aircushions keep the infant safe and floating.
