Aviointeriors CEO Mr. Ermanno De Vecchi today announced that the Latina based Seat Manufacturer had been selected by RUAG Aviation to design and manufacturer a brand new seat for installation in the Dornier 228.
RUAG Aviation is also the manufactures (OEM) of the Dornier 228, a versatile aircraft for special missions and passenger and cargo operations.
“This seat will be designed, qualified manufactured and delivered to RUAG within 26 weeks. This partnership will enable passengers of this commuter aircraft to utilise a modern, comfortable seat that will have substantial aesthetic and weight advantages over the seats that are currently installed in the Dornier aircraft. We at Aviointeriors took on board the need for RUAG to have an extremely short development phase and have selected a dedicated team of engineers to meet these requirements. We are extremely pleased that we have been selected and look forward to long relationship with RUAG and their customers.”
The seat, which as yet, does not have a model name was envisaged based upon the extremely tight criteria required by RUAG and is another example of the Aviointeriors philosophy of bespoke design and customisation for specialised customer requirements.
Aviointeriors are exhibiting at AIX 2017 in Hamburg and their team can be found at Stand 5A20 in Hall 5.
