Precision Aircraft Components Won’t Settle for the Back Seat

Precision Aircraft Components of Palm City, Fla., has announced a new, electrically operated, 16-g berthable divan. According to sales manager Mike Stevens, the biggest challenge was finding a good, reliable motor. The divan unfolds and extends to form a sleeping berth and retracts with the touch of a button. It also has a pressure-sensor safety feature that causes the motor to reverse immediately. There is also a manual override in the case of motor failure. “It’s the only motorized 16-g side-facing divan on the market,” said Stevens. The divan comes in a three- or four-place version, and each seat section is certified separately. The arms at each end slide down to accommodate taller passengers.
