Rear facing seat are considered safer in aircraft - in the armed forces all passenger seats face the rear of the plane. I imagine the padding on a seat spreads the forces far better than the smaller area of a belt. Obviously rear facing seats are not advised for the pilot.
The trouble is that most people don't like facing the rear!
As a child i didnt like it much either Hugh ...esp when the dog had wind
.... but you soon learned how much fun it was being a tail gunner in the spaceship OVLOV
Why is it the older I get .... the better I think I was ?
