According to AmSafe, the AmSafe Aviation Airbag System is an available option on all new PA-46 aircraft and for aftermarket installation on entry level and twin engine Piper models. With this agreement, AmSafe expands its network of authorized AmSafe Aviation Airbag service centers to over 500 locations worldwide.

"AmSafe is pleased to expand the number of Piper Aircraft models that support the Aviation Airbag System. By incorporating the Piper Aircraft Service Network into our own, it is easier than ever for more Piper operators to take advantage of the increased safety and protection this system affords," said AmSafe Aviation President Bill Hagan. "Currently installed in roughly 80 percent of all new single-engine general aviation aircraft, the AmSafe Aviation Airbag System is a proven technology that saves lives. We look forward to working with Piper Aircraft and other manufacturers to ensure it is available in the most popular GA aircraft models."

The AmSafe Airbag System is a self-contained, modular restraint designed to improve occupant protection from serious head-impact injury and enhance one's ability to exit the aircraft following an otherwise survivable accident.

When the system's sensors detect a crash, an airbag built into the restraint deploys up and away from the seat occupant-unlike automobile airbags which deploy toward the occupant. The AmSafe Aviation Airbag System has been rigorously tested to meet Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) requirements.

Makes perfect sense, if the technology is there why not use it. Commercial aircraft are starting to move towards that technology, so why not private aircraft as well?
