SmartTray picks partner for manufacturing, certification
SmartTray International LLC, which makes low cost tablet device in-flight entertainment platforms, announced today that Satterfield Aerospace of Northridge, California will do the final engineering, design, FAA certification and manufacturing of the SmartTray X2 proprietary tray table.
The non-powered product design comes on the heels of the Federal Aviation Administration's October ruling that airlines can safely expand passenger use of Portable Electronic Devices (PEDs) during all phases of flight.
Satterfield Aerospace President John Satterfield said, "SmartTray has a very innovative product design, which we feel presents a very rich market opportunity for us. We are very happy to have a partnership with such an innovative company like SmartTray."
"The SmartTray X2 comes at a perfect time with the recent regulatory change, providing airlines an FAA-compliant and economical way to provide safe stowage of PEDs while enhancing the total customer experience," said Nick Pajic, CEO and Founder of SmartTray.
