New Zealand-based Altitude Completion Centre has taken delivery of 16 executive seats from Italian interior components supplier Iacobucci for installation in a new Boeing Business Jet.

The kit includes seats for crew rest, guest lounge, a VIP lounge and a VIP stateroom. Dimensions between armrests range from 21 inches to 23 inches, depending on the location aboard the aircraft.

All 16 seats feature lever-type leg rest and back rest control, a flex-wing head rest, full-flat configuration for sleeping, and single level track and swivel control. A heel-kick foot rest that extends telescopically for an additional three inches in seat length further enhances comfort.

Upholstery materials are from Perrone Aerospace leather. Leather for crew rest seats comes from Kaolin Leather, and Sumo Leather was used for the VIP area.

The three middle seats in the guest lounge area are equipped with a PCU switch panel concealed by an upholstered flip-up lid incorporated into the arm rest. They are also equipped with in-arm, plug-and-play video monitor and an audio jack for headphones.
