Peace of Mind When Flying With Kids: CARES Child Aviation Restraint System

Last Updated on December 1, 2014 by Jody Halsted

If you fly with a child who is out of a car seat but not quite big enough to be safe with only the lap belt you will love the CARES Child Aviation Restraint. CARES changes the lap belt into a five-point safety harness and makes flying much safer for children.

Here’s what makes CARES such an invaluable travel solution:

  • CARES is the first and only harness type Aviation Child Safety
    Device to be certified by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) as
    an alternative to a car seat.
  • CARES is an elegantly designed belt-and-buckle device that works in
    conjunction with the regular airplane seat belt and provides young
    travelers the same level of safety as a car seat.
  • CARES weighs just one pound and fits into a 6″ stuff sack! It is
    easily portable, simple to install, adjustable to every size airplane
    seat, and usable on any seat in the airplane, except in the emergency
    exit rows.

It was incredibly easy for me to use and kept Brenna from hopping around in her seat, which is a problem we often have when flying. The peace of mind is worth every penny!
