Why do we have to put our seats upright during takeoff and landing?

Hi Captain Lim, 

I've always wondered why we have to put our seats upright during takeoff and landing?

Thanks.

Hi Blue,

There are two main reasons for doing so - firstly, to reduce injuries to the minimum during a crash landing and secondly, the tilt of the economy seats (three inches or so) near the emergency exits may slow down the evacuation process.

How are injuries minimized?  When the seat is tilted back, it's unlocked. In the event of an emergency crash landing, an unlocked seat creates more force during the impact. The thrusting forward of that seat can cause a greater impact on the passenger. Just like a catapult, the farther back the seat, the greater distance your head would travel during an impact and more force would be generated.
