Starling Aerospace (Stand number 1209) is exhibiting at Aircraft Interiors Middle East (AIME), in Dubai, on 23-24th January 2018. The leading aircraft interior specialist will be displaying its most recent innovation, the VIP Track and Swivel Seat, and promoting its enhanced services with the latest technologies.
Starling Aerospace is showing off its impressive VIP Track and Swivel Seat certified for 9G and 16G for the first time at AIME. The lightweight aluminium aircraft seat has been designed to lie flat at 179°, turn 359° and accommodate passengers over 6ft in height. It also tracks sideways, backwards and forwards to optimise passenger space for recline and relaxation.
The proprietary VIP Track and Swivel Seat, designed, certified and manufactured by Starling Aerospace, is featured in cream with blue leather piping and twin stitching and meets the latest aircraft regulations without compromise on style or comfort. Visitors will be able to see first-hand upholstery completed by Starling Aerospace’s in-house trim shop that is 16G approved.
Demonstrating the company’s newest technology equipment for Aqua Transfer Printing, a model aircraft finished in wood look film will also be on show. With a super-large 1.2 metre x 3.4 metre tank with robotic arm, automated film lay and activation system now in place, Starling Aerospace is able to print in one dip full sized side ledges, bulkheads and sliding doors.
As well as the recent investment into a new automated Aqua Transfer Printing and Rinse tank with robotic arm, Starling Aerospace has installed a 4 axis machining centre for aluminium seating components, a 5 axis CNC router for 3D composite structures and a Gerber automated CNC leather and fabric cutter to complement its in-house seat manufacturing capability.
Coralie Wigg, Commercial Director and Co-founder of Starling Aerospace states: “With this equipment we can provide high quality repetitive finishes, shorter lead times and a higher standard of customer service. In house 3D printing of prototypes to demonstrate proof of concept for designs and customer approval prior to production minimizes lost time and brings first article concepts in real time.”
Starling Aerospace carries EASA approvals for Design: UK21J.538, Manufacturing: UK21G.2581, and Repair & Overhaul: UK145.01249.
