Pitch Aircraft Seating (hall B5, stand 5G50) is hoping to conquer the economy class retrofit market with its new lightweight seat.
Being unveiled at the show, the PF2000 is designed for high-density, single-aisle aircraft and weighs less than 25kg for a triple unit thanks to construction from lightweight composite materials.
Sculpted to closely mould the human form, the PF2000 optimises knee and leg room, while its curved shape enables an extra 2.5 in of legroom over standard economy seats. The modular back rests allows an integrated IFE package, IPad carrier, or a high or low literature pocket and are interchangeable allowing customers to change IFE solutions at any point with minimum modification.
Pitch is advancing plans to support the Airbus A320 family and the Boeing 737 series according to its sales director Stewart Cordner, who says that the company is also intending to deliver the seats in record time through new production techniques.
