Canadian aerospace group Bombardier has selected B/E Aerospace's recently acquired Aircraft Modular Products division to develop the first motorised seats and side-facing divans meeting US Federal Aviation Administration 16g certification standards.

AMP will supply the 16g seats and divans for installation in Bombardier's Global Express long-range business jet.

Bombardier has also selected the B/E subsidiary as the preferred supplier of seats for its range of Canadair Regional Jet and de Havilland Dash 8 regional aircraft, in a programme which is valued at $87 million.

AMP will also supply 16g seats and divans for the first VIP-configured Boeing 777, being completed by Raytheon Systems in Waco, Texas.

Tulsa, Oklahoma-based Nordam is developing an interior liner system for executive aircraft, including the Boeing Business Jet. Nordam has purchased a 737-200 fuselage to allow development and pre-fitting of the "acoustically optimised" liner.
