Especially those seated in the rear of the aircraft,and if the rear or front seat pax are childern.
I cant find any information in the POH except it mentions using coats to protect the face but does not give any information on positions to adopt.
This aircraft has a shoulder strap,same as a car, and not just a lap strap.
Most information I can find seems to give brace positions as for airlines with lap straps only.
In an airline your not going to push against the pilots chair or against the aircraft controls.
Which could interfere with proper control of the aircraft after initial touchdown or depending on impact forces
from the rear pax on the front seats and damaging same ,obstructing the exit of the aircraft.
Maybe someone in Aer Arann might be able to help. As they are single pilot operation on the Islanders they may have a briefing for front seat pax.
that seems like a safe position as the passenger should not interfer with the controls on impact.
I have never heard that from any instructors but i think it is a sensible solution and i may use it in futher pax briefings.
