PITCH Seats Reduce Air Rage

Keeping passengers happy in a confined space can be a challenge for Airlines. In a drive to improve passenger space and reduce arguments on board there has been a significant move towards fixed back seats on single aisle aircraft. The PF3000 seat is fixed in a semi recline position giving passengers more personal space and the Airlines lower running costs.  ISRAIR Airlines have been flying the PITCH PF3000 seat on their A320 aircraft since early 2018. To see a TV News Report showing the positive impact of our seats on ISRAIR’s passengers please see video below. The report is under 2 minutes long with most of the dialogue in Hebrew.

Pitch Aircraft Seating featured on the recent BBC programme “Rip Off Britain” which outlined the industry trend towards high density configurations and how “traditional” aircraft seats caused discomfort for the taller passengers. The programme showed how our PF3000 seat provides a significant improvement to the passenger’s leg room at todays reduced Pitch.

Tough Seats: Pitch present at IQPC in Hamburg 04-06 December

Pitch director, Gary Doy, presents the finer details behind testing the PF3000 seat at the IQPC (Innovative Aircraft Seating) in Hamburg this month. The PF3000 seat is certified to the latest 16g (C127b) specification allowing it to be fitted to the new generation of narrow body aircraft.  

Crash Test

Passengers can be very creative when flying economy seats and at Pitch we go out of our way to test for the unexpected. On one flight three passengers found a way to “upgrade” from economy to “lay flat” by using the tray tables of the Pitch seat as bed!

built tough

Tray tables come in for heavy use. We aim to find the best balance between weight at strength! How many aircraft seats can you stand on like this?

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.
