The London Biggin Hill airport-based company now holds capabilities for all three supplement type certificates (STC) from the FAA, EASA and UK CAA. The newly approved seat modifications for the Phenom 300 include headrest, backrest, seat base foam and cover replacements, arm cap renewals and refurbishments, seat base panel refurbishments and painted surfaces refurbishments. This also couples with JetMS approved repairs for seat pan crack repairs and seat base panel attachment bracket replacements.
“After 18 months of hard work and application submissions to EASA, CAA and FAA, we have finally achieved and received the FAA STC validation for the Phenom 300 type light business jet seat modifications,” says head of design Kevin Hann CEng FRAeS. “This is a very big step for us, and we are extremely happy to be able to proceed with interior completions.”
The overall seat maintenance and modifications for the Embraer 505 Phenom 300 now cover the replacement of headrest, seat base and seat back foams and leather or fabric covers, armrest assembly to include plastic moulding, foam and leather or fabric covers, all metal parts to be refinished as required, lower shrouds and back panel to be covered in leather or to customer requirements, seatbelts replaces or re-webbed, with change in the plated finish, if required, and EASA approved processes for metal structure repairs. Additionally, modifications for the lavatory seat and head strike pad are available, to match the new seat decors.
