FLIGHTSAFE is a pressure regulating ear plug specifically designed for Adults and Children who suffer ear pain while flying.
The patented metal filter within the medical grade plastic FlightSafe slows down the rate of pressure change in the ear, alleviating the symptoms experienced by sufferers of ear discomfort when the cabin pressure changes rapidly during take-off and landing.
FlightSafe are intended for people with sensitive ears or people who must fly even though suffering with a cold, allergy or sinus condition. We do not recommend use of FlightSafe in the event of severe sinus, cold or flu congestion. If discomfort persists, use should be discontinued and doctor’s advice sought. Use by children must be closely supervised by an adult. For anyone with ear ailments please consult your specialist prior to use.
6 Reasons Why You Should Use FlightSafe
Almost every air passenger has suffered an unpleasant feeling of pressure or even pain in the ears occasionally during landings – the airplane ears. Sometimes hearing is affected even days after the flight.
At cruising altitude there is only one constant air pressure in the plane cabin corresponding to that on a mountain at about 2000 meters. The air pressure in the cabin again increases very quickly during the landing.
Without FlightSafe ear plugs: The increasing air pressure bends the ear drum in the direction of the middle ear.
Even the ear has to react in this situation. The Eustachian tubes, a tube like connection between the nasopharyngeal region and the middle ear, must ensure that the air pressure in the middle ear increases again through a so-called active opening. If this does not happen quickly enough, it leads to a painful bending of the ear drum called ear barotrauma, airplane ears or ear popping.
