    I'm hoping that if it goes through, we can collect enough data to convince the FAA to do the same... Since they like to discount and ignore the current studies.

    Wasn't there a small plane crash in Alberta a few years back where the only survivor was a young girl who was properly restrained in a carseat installed in the aircraft? We always had DD in her car seat on the plane.

    I remember that. I remember I wanted to know what car seat it was.

    Found an article, the crash was in BC

    http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/edmont...ashes-1.653093

    Tragically the son of the pilot killed in the crash was killed in a crash 5 months later
