First shown in 2013, FlyRight was a result of looking beyond the traditional cushion and dress cover combination.
Taking inspiration from other industries, FlyRight is an open mesh suspension system, designed to be used without a cushion or cover.
Offering maximum living space, minimal weight yet maintaining high comfort, FlyRight was definitely ahead of its time when unveiled at the 2013 AIX in Hamburg.
The revolutionary dress cover attachment system, Velocity is the ultimate high speed, perfect fit cover system available to the industry today.
Replacing hook and loop fasteners with a completely new design of attachment system created in our own R&D department has resulted in a dress cover that can be fitted and removed in seconds.
The design of the system also means that the cover can only be fitted correctly, removing the variation that can occur with Hook and Loop methods and improving the appearance of the cabin through the entire life cycle.
Combining the very best attributes of both a rigid seat pan and a suspension diaphragm, Panaphragm offers premium passenger comfort and protection from a reduced thickness cushion.
The rigid pan portion of the design protects the occupant from any structural features mounted underneath whilst the suspension layer mounted above means that less cushioning is needed to maintain a high level of comfort.
Overall, this can offer a lighter seat pan and cushion assembly with the highest levels of comfort and durability.
A revolutionary seating suspension material, developed from the original FlyRight seat designed to extend the life of the seat cushion.
OMNI-Flex has proven to result in lower hardness loss over time meaning that softer, lighter cushions will last longer than normal.
