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.
“This seat will be designed, qualified, manufactured and delivered to RUAG within 26 weeks. This partnership will enable passengers of this commuter aircraft to utilize a modern, comfortable seat that will have substantial aesthetic and weight advantages over the seats that are currently installed in the Dornier aircraft,” stated De Vecchi. “We at Aviointeriors took on board the need for RUAG to have an extremely short development phase and have selected a dedicated team of engineers to meet these requirements.”
