Aviointeriors to develop Dornier 228 seat within 26 weeks


April 4, 2017 –  Aviointeriors CEO Ermanno De Vecchi today announced at Aircraft Interiors Expo that it has been selected by RUAG Aviation to design and manufacturer a new seat for installation in the Dornier 228. RUAG Aviation is an OEM partner for the Dornier 228.
