5th International Conference Innovative Aircraft Seating 2014

Date: 27-Oct-14 to 29-Oct-14
Location: Hamburg / Germany
Seats have a huge impact on customer perception and flight costs! With rising fuel prices looming on the horizon, airlines cannot afford to miss out on the opportunity to reduce costs by further minimizing the weight of their interior design. Less carbon consumption and a further range with an increased passenger payload are the major motivators driving innovations in seating design. At the same time, airlines need to have a distinct cabin interior design in order to bind customers and to comply with their demands for comfort and safety: enhanced and innovative solutions for seating comfort and functionality, ambience and entertainment are an absolute must-have for OEMs, airlines and suppliers. Therefore the challenge is to minimize seat weight but at the same time optimize seat ergonomics ...

Innovative Aircraft Cabin Composites & Lightweight Materials

Date: 27-Oct-14 to 29-Oct-14
Location: Hamburg / Germany
As the global trends toward CO2 reduction and resource efficiency increase, so too does the importance of lightweight materials in aviation. Rising fuel costs per seat represent the greatest driver in searching for innovative lightweight structures: despite significant improvements in airframes, engines and lighter-weight interior components, fuel costs, as a percentage of overall fleet operating costs, continue to rise. Rising fuel prices have become the dominant cost factor for airline operations, accounting for one-third or more of operating costs. By 2022, fuel could make up 50% or more of fleet operating costs. As we enter a new age of aviation, it is clear that the industry is focused on finding new and exciting ways of using lightweight materials. However, the use of ...
