5 Year Warranty across all parts on the PF3000 seat

 We have great confidence in our product and to show it we are offering a 5 year warrantee across all parts, including the plastics and foams. The PF3000, through design, withstands the rigours of daily operations and retains its ''as new'' appearance.

Testing for a longer life

The PF3000 has undergone extensive cyclic and abuse testing to ensure it will last in today’s harsh cabin environment. It’s design is based on over 4 years in service data and the seat has proved to be very tough. The foam and dress cover system exceeded our expectations in the simulated 5 year cyclic tests, showing only marginal degradation and offering a long life in service.

  Low cost of ownership   The PF3000 is designed to dramatically reduce the Airlines cost of ownership. The construction of the seat is very robust with proven materials and a low part count. The 5 year warranty is complimented with an Airline managed inventory to eliminate lead time delays for spare parts and product. Fast swap out times for all Line Replaceable Units make the seat an easy choice for the maintenance team.

Huge response for PITCH @ AIX Hamburg 2018

Hamburg.jpg

PITCH had a great show this year with positive feedback from Airlines on our “Project Surface” initiative and the premium dress covers on the PF3000 seat. The seat showed its “chameleon like” characteristics with visitors surprised to see how different it looks with new dress covers and surface finishes. Our team worked hard to keep up with the volume of visitors and firm enquiries for deliveries this year.  We would like to thank our customers for spending time with us at the show and our suppliers for their support.

PITCH ''PROJECT SURFACE'' @ AIX Hamburg 10-12 April 2018

This year PITCH will be showing the results of “Project Surface” at Aircraft Interiors in Hamburg. Visitors will be able to see a combination of exciting surface finishes not usually associated with this class of seat. There will be a range of new dress cover designs from the baseline “Easy-Clean” cover to the Premium “Lux-Technic”. We want to open a conversation with airlines about inspiring their customers and challenge the perception of fixed recline economy seating.  

We are on the upper floor Hall B3 (Stand 3UA51). Come over, take a seat and meet the team.

Virtual Reality: Demonstrating Space

Airline customers will be experiencing seat space on line in the future.  We will be presenting an A320 virtual reality cabin on our stand where visitors will be able to move in the virtual world and see the additional  space provided by the PF3000. Come over and experience it for yourself.

What value do airlines place on perceived quality and branding in Y class seating?  In this highly competitive market sector, cost, weight, durability and availability are the main drivers behind airlines’ purchase decisions. Is there really a need to push for higher perceived quality or have we reached an acceptable plateau with no real need for improvement?

Project Surface is an initiative by aircraft seating company, Pitch, aimed at exploring enhanced surface finishes and branding on the PF3000 economy seat. “We are always looking at ways to make a difference and test the marketplace with new ideas,” says Pitch director, Gary Doy.

“When we look at business and first-class offerings we see significant improvements in craftsmanship and attention to detail setting new standards and driving up customer expectations. We want to open a conversation with airlines about economy class and listen to their feedback”.
