How to Assume the Brace Position
The brace position is one of the key elements for survival in a plane crash. Unfortunately, it is not demonstrated in all in-flight safety demonstrations. In the event of an emergency landing, it is standard procedure that the cabin crew will demonstrate how to adopt the brace position before the emergency landing. However, crashes are often unexpected, so you cannot rely on this alone. Fortunately, this article will explain how to assume the brace position.
When you hear a warning such as "Brace", "Heads down, stay down", or you see the seatbelt sign (right) flash repeatedly, immediately assume the brace position.
It is important to note that there are two different brace positions.The first one is used when the seat in front of you can be reached (such as when you are seated in economy/coach class). The second one is the brace position to assume when the seat back in front of you cannot be reached (such as when you are seated in first class).
Brace Against the Seatback Method
Ensure your seatbelt is securely fastened.Place your hands together on top of your head (do not interlock your fingers).
Lean forward as far as possible so that your head touches the back of the seat in front of you.
Ensure that your forearms cover the sides of your face to protect it from debris.
Push your feet back past your knees (partially under your seat).
Keep your feet flat on the floor.
Brace in a Curled Position
If you cannot reach the seatback or bulkhead in front of you, use this brace position.
Ensure your seatbelt is securely fastened.
Bend your body forward so that your head is down around your knees.
Link your arms together behind or around your legs to stop them from moving forward during impact.
Keep your head down.
Push your feet back past your knees and keep them flat on the floor.

If you ever see the seatbelt sign flashing on your flight or are told by your flight attendant to brace for impact, tuck your feet beneath your seat and keep them flat against the floor.

- Some people believe that the purpose of the brace position is to snap the necks of passengers (killing them in the process) because it is claimed that a payout to a deceased passenger's family is cheaper than an injured passenger's settlement claims in the long term.
