CARES Info & Tips

CARES is the solution to safe and easy flying with children!

CARES, the Child Aviation Restraint System, is the only harness type child aviation safety restraint  ever certified for airplane travel by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

CARES is an elegantly designed belt and buckle device for kids 10-20 kilograms, up to 102cm tall, generally aged 1 to 4/5 yrs  that is easy to use and creates a safe airplane seat for your child without the hassle of carrying a 8 kilogram car seat.

CARES weighs just 500 grams and fits into a 15cm drawstring carry bag!  It is simple to install, adjustable to virtually any size airplane seat, and keeps your child as safe as a car seat would.

CARES is made of the same industrial-strength webbing as your own seatbelt.  It is engineered and manufactured by AmSafe Aviation, the world's foremost manufacturer of airline seatbelts.

Need your car seat at the end of the trip?  Check it as luggage  -- take CARES on board in your pocket for a safe airplane seat for your child and a hassle free trip for you!
