    Ready for installation on the flight deck

    Sewed up the back this morning and Velcro'ed it to the seat back.

    I guess I'll give it a try this afternoon. I haven't made the bags for the seat back yet, but I'll get around to it eventually.

    Sure glad thats finished. I'm not sure I'd want to build another one.

    Michael,

    This seat looks very good. Excellent work my friend, I cant get over how well it turned out. Good thing I switched from a Boeing to a Lear, cause now I dont have to hold myself to the new standard that you have definately set for self-built seats.

    Wonderful! What's the certificate?

    Thanks! The certificate is the FAA certification for fire retardancy. The other tags are Spectra Products and a Servicable tag from another piece of equipment.

    With the tags hanging on it , it looks like either a new seat you just bought from Boeing, or a seat that is about to be shipped out to install as a replacement in an aircraft.

    Nice work!

    best,

    Thanks! I'm trying it out now. Been sitting for three hours and so far it's proven to be very comfortable. No back problems or circulation problems in the legs.

    I'm certainly glad I added the lumbar support to the seat back cushion.

    I just finished a couple of flights. The first from Glasgow to London for a T&G, and then over to London City for a full stop. I changed airports to München and flew to Innsbruck for a T&G, and then to Wien for a full stop.

    The seat is solid and very comfortable. Kinda neat being strapped in for a change. And you're really strapped in. I've never worn a five-point harness before, but you sure don't move around much.

    Now I'm positive my overhead needs to be moved back about four inches and down at the top about three.

    Good thing too. These in-flight fires at FL300 (or in the basement) can be deadly

    By the way, if you had put up your seat for sale on e-bay & I had seen it, I would have believed it was a real aircraft seat. That is some amazing workmanship indeed.
