Light aircraft AEROBAG

Five european companies (LaMouette, Helite, Hynov, G’Découvert, Softair) with the help of local and national ultralight federations have worked for the past 2 years in developing an intelligent protection device.
We have created a product that is extremely reliable and effective for the pilot and the passenger. This active system uses the cold gas airbag technology, which Helite has already used for the past decade in the motorcycle and equestrian field. Several patents have been issued for this very innovative product. AEROBAG is innovative for its technology and the way it maintains the head in place to avoid a whiplash. Introducing this kind of airbag in the light aircraft field is the real innovation.

There are two different AEROBAGS:

The AEROBAG BELT integrated in the shoulder straps

The AEROBAG VEST that is worn over any other garment.




Based on previous research to protect motorcyclists and go-kart pilots, the AEROBAG 4P is well adapted for passengers. When inflated the airbag’s shape looks like 2 cushions of 15 liters each that are bind together by a quick buckle.  The airbags wrap around the entire head and come down to the thorax. In case of a shock, the head will be maintained in place by the cushions instead of being projected towards the front or the sides, which also limits considerably the bending, whiplash and hyper extension of the neck and the accelerations on the head and brain (HIC*). Moreover, the airbags obviously and very importantly protect from direct shocks by absorbing and distributing the forces of the impact.

The Areobag is discreetly integrated in the shoulder straps of the harness that usually only serves as a seatbelt on the seats of aircrafts.  The system is easily installed and adaptable to any 4 points harnesses already settled on your seat. The whole system: bag, shoulder straps and gas generator weighs less than 950 grams. A quick and easy easy chest clip increases the effectiveness of the airbag by attaching the cushions together.
