The Challenge

Re-configuring and engineering the seat track of some excellent donated seats, for installation in an historic World War II era aircraft.

Our Approach

We worked with our client to understand the number of passengers they wanted to be able to accommodate. We evaluated the condition of the seats and proposed a new configuration.

The Solution

The seats, donated by a cargo airline, were in great condition but configured in groups of three. We reworked the seats into groups of two and engineered the seat track installation.  Before the seats could be installed, we engineered a solution to restore the aircraft’s floor – repairing a hole that had been used for a camera.

The Result

Aviation buffs from far and wide get to experience the thrill of a ride in this historic aircraft, and the aviation museum achieves its goal.
