  • 30-Sep-2009 03:48 EDT

A versatile lightweight seat from Yingling Aviation provides Cessna Model 208 Caravan owners with an option that is comfortable and can be incorporated into the OASIS interior package or ordered as an option on the standard model. At a fully upholstered weight of 45 lb, it comes with a quick-release feature that allows easy removal to permit the airplane to be used for cargo-carrying missions. The design offers passengers enhanced visibility, is fully reclinable, comes with inboard and outboard stowable armrests, and includes an adjustable headrest for added comfort. The seats have passed the FAA’s 21G dynamic test requirement for forward-facing seats and are equipped with full forward breakover seatbacks, retractable shoulder harnesses, and the ability to track fore and aft for additional legroom or cargo space.
