I just started flying an SR-20. I’m about 6’3" tall and have to recline the seat back to fit in the airplane and then lean forward to reach the controls on the Garmin Perspective displays. In this seat geometry the harness inertia reels are so strong they pull the harness up over my stomach. If I tighten the lap belts enough that this doesn’t happen they’re so tight they are very uncomfortable. My physical build is trim so I don’t have a big stomach to help keep the harness from riding up.
The harness for me is very uncomfortable, annoying, and my biggest disappointment in the airplane. Is this a common problem for tall, trim Cirrus pilots? Has anyone already solved this problem?
I’m thinking of getting a length of seat belt strapping I can sit on and tie or Velcro loop the other end around the lap belts to hold the harness down.
