Timco Aerosystems’ new dynamic sled test facility in Wallburg, N.C., has received FAA approval for the testing of aircraft seats to show compliance with regulatory codes 14CFR25.562 and 14CFR23.562. The approval enables Timco to test seats for compliance with critical occupant safety impact standards, including 16-g horizontal and 14-g vertical structural thresholds. The facility includes energy-saving, high-frequency fluorescent tube lighting and a high-speed video component that enables comprehensive data collection and analysis that can drive design and safety enhancement.
