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.
Aviation Fabricators (AvFab) recently received supplemental type certificate (STC) approval for its two-place divan for the Learjet 60. The company has similar approvals for the Learjet 55, 55B, and 55C.

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.
