Iacobucci HF’s seat division has won EASA and FAA STC approvals for its new 16-g executive seat, allowing for installation of the forward- and aft-facing variants in the Boeing Business Jet.

The oil burner tests on the premium leather and foam combination for the first ship-set have been completed and the first set is already in service.

The seat offers 23 inches between armrests, incorporates mechanical tracking and 360-degree swivel, and converts to a full-flat sleeping position (6 feet, 5 inches long).

According to the Italian cabin components supplier, certification tests of the seat for the Airbus ACJ line are under way.
