    Boeing 737 and 747 seats

    Hi all,

    Maybe a very good alternative for the seats before starting looking for real ones. see link

    Maybe a bit expensive but the stuff looks nice and good. You can always make your own adjustments

    Regards

    Well, the seats are good looking, but they are not adjustable in height so in my opinion they are useless.

    Adjustment is critical important.

    And you get a brand new Scania or Volvo truck seat for that prize. They are adjustable in all kinds of direction.

    I agree a bit with the prize but with some imagination you can design something simple underneath the chair and you have almost the same results as the fancy trucker chairs.

    Absolutely

    I have been thinking about using a modified scissor-jack. Like the ones that come with a brand new car. Should be fairly easy to install in a seat

    Before I decided to build mine to my height requirement, I looked at a motorcycle jack. It had all the right stuff, but it was a bit too big.

    I finally gave up and just decided to custom build it to the height I needed.
