SkyRider vertical seats
The "SkyRider", is an ultra-high density seat presently completely engineered and to be finally tested. The SkyRider has been designed and engineered to offer the possibility to even further reduce ticket prices while still maintaining sound profitability, which, even with a dual or three class seating arrangement, will allow maximum certified passenger capacity of the aircraft.
With a much reduced seat pitch, the SkyRider preserves a comfortable position for the low fare passengers.
The SkyRider is intended as a new basic class. The passenger's seating position is similar to that of a touring motor-scooter rider. This posture permits that the overall longitudinal space occupied by the seat with the seated passenger is far less than that of a conventional, very high-density 28" economy class seat.
