Abstract : The patent concerns a headrest for airplane seats, and more particularly for helicopters which provide crash protection to the pilot by the use of a resilient pivotal coupling between a headrest supporting member and the headrest assembly itself. An integrally attached, rapidly movable visor is provided which is movable from a first position wherein it does not restrain the pilot's head a second position where it does restrain the pilot's head, at the same time the headrest provides visibility and armored protection completely around the pilot's head.
