Abstract : This report describes a study of shoulder harness installation and use rates in general aviation aircraft. Observations were made at six geographically separate areas to determine estimates of current installation and use rates. An expert panel was employed to identify important factors that affect installation and use of shoulder harnesses in general aviation aircraft. Analyses are presented to explain reasons for shoulder harness installation and use rates. An educational program is proposed to influence pilots to install and/or use shoulder harnesses in their general aviation aircraft.
