 - May 14, 2011, 10:47 PM

Lufthansa Technik (Stand 443) can be counted on for something that expands the cabin envelope, so to speak. This time it’s a Recline Excite 700iSP ergometer (exercise bicycle) from Technogym, modified for in-flight use on aircraft. According to the Hamburg, Germany based company, it has “modified and qualified a premium off-the-shelf ergometer to comply with the airworthiness regulations of the European Aviation Safety Agency.”  For quick installation and removal, the 700iSP can be fitted on the seat tracks in any aircraft without constraints. Once provisions are in place, the ergometer can be installed and removed by any Part 145 organization in less than 30 minutes.
