DeCrane Aircraft Seating has received STCs from the European Aviation Safety Agency for its new-generation 16-g model 6004 single and model 6005 double executive aircraft seats. The new seats feature a redesigned positive locking brake mechanism, infinite swivel adjustment and linear bearing tracking. According to the Pestigo, Wis.-based seating specialist, the new seats have fewer parts and weigh less than the earlier models. The single seat can carry 70 pounds of upholstery and options. Options include electrically operated functions, rotation and travel limiters, a more robust leg-rest mechanism, four head-rest styles, variable back lengths, adjustable arm heights and provisions for in-arm video monitors and tray tables.
