Traveling tips:

Traveling with small children

When traveling with your small children, consider this...
The FAA Federal Aviation Regulations Part 91.14 states that "During takeoff and landing all occupants must occupy a seat with a safety belt properly secured about him/her. However, a person who has not yet reached his/her 2nd birthday may be held by an adult who is occupying a seat".   In the U.S., it is illegal to travel in a car with a small child or any child on your lap.  In reality, in an airplane which are very safe, the lap children are at risk of injury or death while ridding on the lap.  During the flight, events like turbulence or abrupt airplane maneuvering can occur that can make it impossible for you hold on to your child, even takeoff and landing can be hazardous.

When travling with your small children, it is safer for your child to sit in a seat where an approved child restraint seat can be used.

Ask yourself this:  Is my child worth the price of a ticket?
