Starling Aerospace shows VIP seat at AIME

By Rick Lundstrom

Starling Aerospace will be showing visitors its latest generation VIP track and swivel seat at next week’s Aircraft Interiors Middle East in Dubai.

The next generation seat is lighter, more agile and made with an improved gliding and locking action. Visitors to the stand (Number 100) will be able to see moving graphics of the upgraded seat which tracks sideways, forward and backwards. Starling has also added a new electric head rest, recline and leg rest.

The seat is certified for 9G and 16G, can turn 359 degrees allowing passengers to interact with others without having to leave the comfort of their seat. The seat has been designed to lie flat at 179 degrees and accommodates passengers more than six feet. Customers are now being offered even more options as part of the seat’s upgrade.

Starling Aerospace carries EASA approvals for design: UK21J.538, manufacturing: UK21G.2581, and repair an overhaul: UK145.01249.

Starling Aerospace will be promoting these capabilities at AIME along with its new technology including: a large aqua transfer tank which allows for large scale aircraft interior components to be covered in one dip, a four axis machining center for aluminum seating components, a five axis CNC router for 3D composite structures and a Gerber automated CNC leather and fabric cutter.
