      HAECO Cabin Solutions Receives FAA TSO-C127B Authorisation for Its Vector™ Premium Seat Platform

      HAECO Cabin Solutions, a division of HAECO Americas with headquarters in Greensboro, North Carolina, USA, announced today at the Aircraft Interiors EXPO that it has received Technical Standard Orders (TSO)-C127b authorisation from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) on its Vector Premium seat platform.

      TSO-C127b is an FAA requirement for aircraft seat original equipment manufacturers of new products. HAECO Cabin Solutions’ Vector Premium seat platform has been qualified to meet TSO-C127b for all seat configurations on Boeing 737 and Airbus A320 aircraft. Obtaining this authorisation will streamline the certification process, allowing HAECO Cabin Solutions to reduce the lead time on products.

      Vector Premium is engineered through a common design philosophy with Vector Economy class seating, which harmonises cabin appearance. Designed with comfort in mind, the baseline Vector Premium seat is lightweight and cost-competitive, and is fully customisable with selectable features – including leg and foot rests, an innovative Personal Electronic Device (PED) holder, IFE integration, and bottle holders, amongst others.

      Vector Premium minimises airlines’ acquisition, installation, and maintenance costs through pre-certification, modular design, parts commonality, and streamlined manufacturing. The product has been designed to integrate into single-aisle business class and twin-aisle premium economy cabin layouts.

      Doug Rasmussen, President and Group Director of HAECO Cabin Solutions, said: “In Vector Premium, HAECO has developed a true platform-based product that shares many parts and features of the Vector Economy class seat. This allows airlines to enjoy lower total cost of ownership while delivering best-in-class comfort to passengers, which is built upon a lightweight composite design.”
