The Embraer Executive Jet Service Center in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, has been certified as a Collins Aerospace Completion Center for in-service aircraft upholstery and cushion work using soft good materials and coverings. The updates are available for the Legacy 450, Legacy 500, Praetor 500, and Praetor 600 executive jet models.
The certification enables Embraer to offer new upholstery designs, which will be provided by Embraer’s Executive Jet Interior Design Team. The team can also now carry out foam reshaping and create new bolster designs, to offer new aftermarket options to Embraer customers.
“Collins’ trust in Embraer enhances our capabilities for seat design, modification and repair. This is a milestone achievement that allows us to better serve our customers, providing seat modification capabilities and repair for executive aircraft seating,” said Frank Stevens, VP of global MRO centres at Embraer Services & Support.
This approval is specific to cabin seats, including in-service seats and new seats installed on in-service aircraft, which gives Embraer the ability to design entirely new upholstery looks within the original type certificate limits.
