NTSB Acting Chairman Mark Rosenker today expressed
disappointment at the FAA's refusal to require effective
action to ensure that infants and toddlers under age 2 are
safely restrained on airliners.

The FAA has announced that it will not require the use of
approved child restraints but will allow their use on a
strictly voluntary basis.

"While the FAA's new position may provide more options for
the voluntary use of safety seats, we continue to believe
that infants and young children deserve the same protection
that is provided to other aircraft passengers," said
Rosenker. "During takeoff, landing, and turbulence, adults
are required to be buckled up, baggage and coffee pots are
stowed, computers are turned off and put away, yet infants
and toddlers need not be restrained. This is an unnecessary
risk to our children."

The NTSB recommended in 1995 that infants and small children
be restrained on airliners in a manner appropriate to their
size. The recommendation has been on the Board's list of
"Most Wanted" safety improvements since 1999.

Rosenker noted that the American Academy of Pediatrics has
made a similar recommendation.

Information on this and other "Most wanted" items may be
found on the Board's web site at

Default CNN

CNN shared last night that a flight attendant on a fatal 1989 flight urged a mother to put her child on the floor as they were preparing for a crash landing and the baby subsequently died.

This particular F/A has been on a one person crusade, in memory of the dead child, to have babies restrained on all flights. She said she will keep speaking out until she dies.
