DayJet founder Ed Iacobucci died last Friday after a 16-month battle with pancreatic cancer. After he left Citrix Systems, the software maker that he co-founded, in the early 2000s, Iacobucci started laying the groundwork for per-seat, on-demand charter operator DayJet and placed an order for 239 Eclipse 500s in May 2005. DayJet started operations in October 2007 but ceased flying 11 months later.
Italy’s Iacobucci HF Electronics (Hall 1, Stand F298) has on display its iconic products, an espresso machine and the food and beverage cart. The espresso machine features a heat exchanger that ensures instant and continuous operation without any waiting time for re-heating the water after each use, according to the company.
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).
Building on 40 years of experience, Italian supplier Iacobucci expanded its presence this year at the Aircraft Interiors Expo (AIX) by announcing deliveries of its first executive seats and unveiling a new food and beverage trolley.
According to Pascal Jallier, head of sales and programs for Iacobucci HF Electronics, the seat has received EASA and FAA approval and the initial ship-set is in service on a Boeing Business Jet.
Iacobucci HF Group has been selected to design and manufacture all seats and galley inserts for a new Boeing Business Jet to be completed by Comlux America in Indianapolis.
The Italian cabin components supplier, better known for galley products from coffee makers to ovens, is a relative newcomer to the business jet seating market. Nevertheless, said CEO Lucio Iacobucci, “We invest in research and development every year to maintain our product offering at the top end of the market.”
The Hyundai Motor Co. has selected Iacobucci HF to provide seating for its new Boeing BBJ, just a few months after Iacobucci launched its new VIP seat business. With the support of Avjet, Comlux America will outfit the BBJ, the second of the type in Iacobucci’s orderbook. Boeing will deliver the bizliner to Comlux in the second quarter of next year and it should be completed within the year.
Italian galley components specialist Iacobucci showed a new line of galley insert items at the NBAA Convention emphasizing simple linear design, intuitive handling, durability and beauty.
According to director of marketing Riccardo Palmeri Lolli, the new design goes deeper than mere appearance. It means the product has a unique design operating philosophy, unique components, design harmony and intuitive interface “to ease use and please the eye.”
Iacobucci HF (Stand 167) is rolling out its ATS Galley Cart here at the EBACE show. The sleek, modern cart was developed in collaboration with BMW Group DesignworksUSA, and combines structural optimization and weight-saving design with an array of customization options.
Italian interiors specialist Iacobucci, perhaps best known for its high-end galley appliances, has found a customer for its new executive seating line in a place on the other side of the world.
Altitude Aerospace Interiors of Auckland, New Zealand, has selected the executive seat, from Iacobucci HF Executive Seat division, for its latest Boeing Business Jet completion project. A team from both companies combined to develop the production version based on Iacobucci’s initial prototype.
Iacobucci HF, the Italian maker of galley appliance inserts, is continuing its venture into the aircraft seating business with the introduction at NBAA of a new business unit–Iacobucci Seat Division–to manage that endeavor.
