Formally known as the BAS folding seats, these jump seats are a proven design and have been in production since 1979. They are STC approved for Cessna models 170, 172, 175, 180, 182, and 185. The seat assemblies are constructed of welded 4130 Chromoly Steel tubing, power coated black. The seat frames are covered with 3.4 oz. Poly-Fiber fabric for durability. They can be used as-is, or covered with a secondary lightweight upholstery to match the rest of your aircraft's interior.  Each seat weighs 5 1/2 pounds. This compares to 29 pounds for the traditional bench seat.  Installation can be done in 8 - 12 hours for both seats by an experienced mechanic.

Key Benefits:

--Lighter weight than standard seats means higher useful load. (11 lb. plus upholstry)
--Seats stow tight against the fuselage side, greatly increasing cargo space.
--Each seat removes with two bolts. Bench seat can be reinstalled with no modifications.
--Seats are comfortable and fit in same fore and aft location as the OEM bench seat.
