1. Gen. pilot seat.
The seat is build of 10mm MDF-sheets. Some parts are laminated to 20,30 or 40 mm thickness.
In fact the armrest is a little weak it will better to use plywood or metal here.
Seat travel 190 mm
2012. Seat after modifying to NG-style. The backrest is shorted and the adjustable headrest is added.
The headrest with imitation leather like the arms
Lumbar is adjustable up-down about 70mm and in-out 20mm.
For a long time I have looked for for a
solution to move the seat sideways so it is possible to enter the seat with the
pedestal bay in centre position.
I found some very realistic J-Rails from Simujabs in Spain
J-Rails and the home made bogies.
Test mounting of the J-rails, bogies and the home made lock system.
Seat lock made in alu. and nylon. A spring press the lock pin to the lock holes
The position of rails, bogies and lock pin must be very accurate and after some small adjustments the system worked well.
Old rails removed and ready to mount the new one.
The mounting holes in the rails are 6 mm. I have used 5 mm screws to have some space for fine tuning.
Bogies and lock system mounted under my old seat.
My seat has therefore become 5 cm. higher and that means I now can see out of the windows without sitting on a cushion.
Now there is room enough between seat and pedestal bay to enter the pilot seat.
