Are you taking the kids to visit Grandma and Grandpa this summer? Are you going on a vacation that requires air travel? As the summer travel season begins, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has launched an education effort to help parents and caregivers make informed choices about their child’s safety when they fly.
The FAA has developed a new web site and online toolkit with information about how to keep children safe when traveling by air. The site includes a downloadable tip sheet for parents and caregivers and a video demonstration on how to properly install a child safety seat on an airplane. Details about FAA-approved child harness devices and links to frequently asked questions also are included on the web site. Click on this link for more information.
