Looking for Jump Seat
« on: December 10, 2013, 10:07:54 AM »
We don't have an actual navigators seat because the wife isn't real comfortable up front, but she would like to sit there occasionally for a few minutes.

We think we're doing a desk up front and I'd like to mount a jump seat on the edge of the floor above the steps.  I can't seem to find anything.  Ideas?

Maybe you could do something with a fold down seat like they have in minivans, etc.  With the back up, it would serve as a co pilot seat. With the back folded down, it could be a platform for your desk.
You don't have to believe everything you think.

I have a brand new Prevost hostess seat for sale, pics attached.  It is already packaged for shipping.  As you can see, it has arm rest and seat belt.

Clifford -

After seeing the pics, that's very inventive.

Any idea where one could obtain one of those?  Be hard to sneak it past TSA. . .

RJ, any of the aircraft dismantelers should have them, ie. Tucson, Victorville, Mojave, Marana, etc.  You can also find stuff like that on ebay once in a while.
