We are down near Tampa. We actually drove through Tallahassee on our way down. I normally refrain from talking politics with people so I can avoid issues. As I told one of my volunteers at a training exercise in April: "There's a time for that sort of thing. This isn't it. Fair enough?". If I can be of assistance, let me know. It's actually been an area of concern for decades to anyone paying attention. De Haven was documenting vertical loads as a major problem by the early 1950s. The problem is that most people don't pay attention or have an attitude that "If you're a good enough pilot, you don't need all that crap". As bright as Tony Bingelis was, one of his recommendations for seat design-- bolting the seat directly to the spare with ZERO stroking capability-- practically gives me a facial tic. Summit or Simpson would be my first two choices. Keep in mind that the DOT standards are well below what is needed for maximal protection (then again....so is the aircraft you're bolting it to). If it were me (and I am back working on my design again), I would insist on something that meets the NHRA, NASCAR or (preferably) the Formula 1 ("FIA") standards. The testing on those makes the FAA/DOT standards look like the quality controls in a Chinese factory producing knock-off Vera Wang purses.
