Our fully equipped workshop caters for the overhaul and repair of a variety of aircraft seats of all classes.
A typical seat overhaul starts with a survey of the seats while they are still installed on the aircraft. This allows us to estimate the scope of work and quantity of spare parts required, and to order them in good time, for the seats input into the workshop.
Once the seats arrive, at the workshop, they are stripped and cleaned ready to be inspected. Subsequent to an inspection worksheets will be raised that identify any; snags, SBs or replacement parts that are required for the seat.
