L-3 Platform Integration has selected PAC Seating Systems of Palm City, Fla., to provide a range of 16-g seats, divan frames, slouching seats and full-flat sleeper seats as part of a 747-8 head-of-state completion project by the Waco, Texas completion center.

It is the 37th executive airliner reconfiguration for which PAC has been picked to provide seating. The company has more than 155 FAA TSO certifications for seats with such features as swivel/tracking, lumbar support, massage, tilting seat pan and different foam densities.

L-3 has also selected Custom Control Concepts (CCC) to provide the cabin management and high-definition entertainment systems for the same 747-8 completion.

According to v-p of business operations Serae Jemera, the highly customized interior will showcase the latest in cabin electronics. “Working closely with L-3’s design department to ensure that each custom switch panel, HD monitor and touch-screen menu is exactly what the client envisions adds to the elegance of the aircraft interior.”
