Zodiac Aerospace has teamed with Hexcel to develop L3 – Living Space, Lightweight, Leadtime.
Presented to airlines during the Aircraft Interiors Expo (AIX) in Hamburg, Germany, last week, the L3 is a passenger seat dedicated for medium/short haul flights, described as offering a good living space to passengers and to airlines a higher density and a lighter weight, below 4 kg per passenger. Zodiac explains that the manufacturing process of the seat will ensure a quick manufacturing and delivery time compared to current seats.
The L3 is an all-composite seat, manufactured from Hexcel’s HexPly carbon fibre prepregs which Zodiac says provide light weight, mechanical resistance and an aesthetic appearance. The armrests and tray tables are manufactured from Hexcel’s HexMC compression moulding process and provide a unique look and strong resistance.
