Executive summary

Acro Aircraft Seating is a start up company, born out of an engineering company with 20 years experience in the aviation market. They set up to produce a bespoke seat for low-cost airlines to offer significant savings in weight, which is key in aviation due to the effect on fuel consumption, and improved passenger comfort, in particular, by increasing leg room.

Designed specifically for short-haul, single aisle aircraft applications, Acro's first production seat is the lightest in its class, providing real fuel savings to airlines, more comfort for passengers and a significant environmental advantage.
