A neighbor of mine used a swivel recliner for a driver's seat. He said it wasn't even attached to the floor. Seatbelts were optional at one time.

Freight would be a killer though.
Got a link or any info?? I'd love a pair for my shorty or my van.

There is a tiny computer for the air lift that adjusts automatically based on weight and limits.

Here is just the harness for the seat I am figuring out. I think I got it beat.

No, these are bus seats I'm working on, like for a bus. Few topics going at once. You want airline captains chair and they employ KISS.

I went to HS in Tucson long ago, spent much time at the base and the boneyards. I miss that source of aluminum now. Home of the A-10.

My buddy's dad helped design the A-10. Amazing machines for sure!

There are some nice ones here, but to recline, they need space behind them.

They also sell Pilot seats.

Yeah, I need a driver's seat that reclines and has a tray table. Maybe a nap will shorten the drive.

Since they do not give prices on their site, I am going to assume that the seats probably cost more than I paid for my bus
