    harnessed booster with highest harness height?

    Asking this for a friend.
    My friend's DD is 8 and has CP. Had my friend known what she does now, she would have kept her DD in a harnessed seat much longer. She has a special needs booster seat in her main car. It has a neoprene harness that is strictly for positioning and the vehicle seatbelt does the restraining. It works well for her. That seat cannot be used on an airplane since it relies on the vehicle lap/shoulder belt for restraint. In her DH's car, she is in a HBB but my friend would like to get her a harnessed seat for that car if at all possible. She is also looking for a seat that can fit on an airplane for a trip in February. Her DD needs the carseat for positioning as she is too tight to sit properly on a regular airline seat and a lap belt is not enough to keep her upright. The only seat I can think of is a Frontier 85. I see it has a top slot of 19.5 inches. Her torso height is 19 inches. I didn't measure it, her DH did, so I'm not sure how completely accurate that is since the first measurement he gave me was from the top of her hips and I had to explain how to measure it over the phone.

    Can you think of any other seats that would be 5pt harness with slots above 19 inches and would be allowed on an airplane?
    TIA!
