Pilot / Co-Pilot Seat
Initial positioning of the Pilots Seat
|Trying the seat with temporary connection to rails to determine the best location for mounting points.|
|With the seat in the basic position, the seat back will lay back completely or flip forward for entry to the rear seat.|
|The full rear to full forward position shows several inches of available adjustment of the seat bottom. For tall pilots the seat lays back for additional headroom.|
The next series will show the seat back bulkhead and the final mountings for the seat rails and seat. The seats work rather well but I am still a bit concerned about the weight factor. I will be removing all the current fabric and foam and replacing with Confor Foam and hopefully leather coverings. That will be a whole section in itself.
Giving Them A Try
And lastly, my wife caught me with a funny grin on my face and making strange sounds while testing the final product. I think they are going to work just fine as long as the plane doesn't make the same strange sounds.
