Some large people cannot buckle their seatbelts in many of the military aircraft with conventional airline seats, such as the C-005, C-017, and most of the smaller executive military aircraft. Can these passengers bring their own seatbelt extenders?

If a person is too large to fit the seat belt supplied on the C-005 or C-017 they may have to try to obtain travel on another military aircraft i. e. C-130, travelers can utilize the web seats or in a C-017, travelers can sit in plastic side seats, which have a little longer seat belt. Travelers are not authorized to supply their own “extenders” and no such extender has yet been certified for use on the C-005 or any other military aircraft.
