airline seats

Has anyone installed airline seats in their skoolie?
Looking at first class or business class seats that fit into a floor channel.

Would be cool, but probably expensive.

Not really. There's a place in Orlando that has them for about $400 for a pair.
Freight would be a killer though.

I looked into them- they were nice leather, recline, safe, light, adaptable, sturdy.

There was a guy in Milwaukee that had 2-wide seats for $250. I didn't think it was bad. Tougher to build storage around them, but they are proper vehicle chairs and seat bottoms float in the event of a water landing !

I scored a pair of NOS Recaro pneumatic bus driver seats, now have to figure out this German over-engineered wiring. They love their modules, tight on docs.

Here are some:

You have to shop carefully because they can be very expensive.

I was considering replacing the driving seat with an airline seat ... Plenty on eBay but Captain's seats from a 747 were over $1000, plus shipping.

Contact the Aircraft bone yards, you would also need the channel they clip into.

I have a Air Force buddy that is VP at the bone yard in Tucson Az,I'll contact him to see what they do with them, I know my company will no longer allow them to be taken because some dumbass mounted a bunch in a van & was involved in a accident , seats came loose then tried to sue the Airline for giving them to him.
