Yingling Aviation, which has installed more than 100 OASIS interiors in the Cessna Model 208 Caravan, has developed a new versatile lightweight seat (VLS) for the popular single-engine turboprop.
Designed to provide Caravan owners with an option that is lighter and with more comfort, the VLS can be incorporated into the OASIS package or ordered as an option on the standard Model 208. At a fully-upholstered weight of 45 pounds, the seat comes with a quick release feature that allows easy removal to permit the airplane to be used for cargo carrying missions, Yingling officials note.
The VLS design offers passengers enhanced visibility, is fully-reclinable and equipped with both inboard and outboard stowable armrests. The headrest is also adjustable. 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.
Installation of the seats takes approximately five minutes and can be scheduled immediately, Yingling officials said.
