At FlyNYON, your safety is our number one priority. On June 16, 2018, we received FAA approval for a new quick release harness system and will be using it on all doors off flights. The system consists of the 338-ARS Heli-Ops harness and ARS Personal Retention Lanyard. The system is designed to keep you safely secured in the helicopter and uses a quick release tether for fast and simple exit in case of an emergency.
The system has been designed and tested by aviation industry safety professionals, reviewed by the FAA and tested by aerial photographers.
“Based on the information you submitted, the FAA has determined that the [supplemental passenger restraint system] listed below meets the stated criteria and can be quickly released by a passenger with minimal difficulty and without impeding egress from the aircraft in an emergency”
