Aviation Fabricators Gets Approval for Jetstream Divans

 - April 2, 2007, 11:11 AM

Two-place, side-facing divans for Jetstream operators are now available from seating specialist Aviation Fabricators. The Clinton, Mo.-based company received both supplemental type certification and parts manufacturing approval from the FAA in March. The package, available in a right- or left-side version, includes sidewall-mounted harness kits, seatbelt track-mounted hold-down fittings and seatbelts. PMA approval eliminates the need for an installation field approval. According to Aviation Fabricators, the addition of two side-facing divans “not only opens up the forward cabin area but provides seating for a net gain of two additional passengers.” Lead time for delivery of the package is two weeks. Installation time is estimated at 15 hours per divan. Pricing starts at just under $5,000 per divan.
