B/E Aerospace
: 31 March, 2010  (New Product)
The Pinnacle main cabin seating system from B/E Aerospace has been launched with orders already having been placed for economy class accommodation usage aboard various aircraft from Boeing and Airbus
B/E Aerospace, a manufacturer of aircraft cabin interior products and distributor of aerospace fasteners and consumables, has announced that its new patented Pinnacle main cabin seating platform, the industry’s lightest full-featured seat, has been selected by nine airlines and leasing companies. These launch awards are initially valued in excess of $250 million, and are for economy class programs in new-buy Boeing B737, Airbus A320, and Boeing B787 aircraft. Deliveries are expected to begin during the latter part of 2010.

B/E Aerospace's Pinnacle seat platform utilizes advanced proprietary technologies that significantly reduce cost of ownership, simplify maintenance and increase overall passenger living space. The cost of ownership savings is a direct result of a 15 percent weight savings over the lightest seat on the market today, achieved through increased use of composites, an integrated lightweight comfort suspension system and a new design methodology that reduces parts by more than 25 percent. Pinnacle is designed for both narrow and wide-body aircraft, and can accommodate a variety of comfort features and options.

'We are gratified with the overwhelming response that we have received for the new Pinnacle seating platform,” said Amin Khoury, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of B/E Aerospace. “The wide variety of launch customers and aircraft types validates our design concept and demonstrates the importance of product innovation and weight reduction for the airlines. In addition to the launch awards, a number of our customers have expressed an interest in our Pinnacle seating platform across all narrow and wide-body aircraft types for both their new-buy and existing fleets. Airlines want to reduce seat weight without sacrificing comfort and over time, we believe Pinnacle has the potential to become the new industry standard for main cabin seating.”

“These awards strengthen our confidence of a recovery in orders in 2010 and a book-to-bill ratio in excess of one to one for the full year 2010. We believe the expected expansion of our backlog in 2010 will drive a significant increase in revenues, earnings and cash flows beginning in 2011,” concluded Mr Khoury.
