From various media reporting we understand that some airline companies would even want to go for a “Stand-Up Cabin”? We are proposing a 23-inch pitch or less; the “SkyRider”.
Aviointeriors is one of the leading Aircraft Seat and Interiors manufacturers with extensive R&D on the subject.
The “SkyRider”, is an ultra-high density seat presently completely engineered and to be finally tested. The SkyRider has been designed and engineered to offer the possibility to even further reduce
ticket prices while still maintaining sound profitability, which, even with a dual or three class seating arrangement, will allow maximum certified passenger capacity of the aircraft.
With a much reduced seat pitch, the SkyRider preserves a comfortable position for the low fare passengers.
The SkyRider is intended as a new basic class. The passenger’s seating position is similar to that of a touring motor-scooter rider. This posture permits that the overall longitudinal space occupied by the seat
with the seated passenger is far less than that of a conventional, very high-density 28” economy class seat.
Furthermore, in the SkyRider arrangement, a partial overlapping of the passengers seating between rows is allowed, thus further increasing the cabin density.
The seat structure itself also provides space for personal baggage.
