Expliseat’s Titanium Seat will now expand overseas, having received TSO C39c authorization from the FAA (the American Federal Aviation Administration) confirming that the world’s lightest seat meets the safety standards of American aviation. Barely five months after certification by the European Aviation Safety Agency, the Titanium Seat can now fly on any airline in the world.

Combining innovation and safety
Once again, the Titanium Seat confirms its dependability and compliance with international safety standards, at only 4 kg. This past July, after several months of review, the FAA granted TSO C39c authorization, clearing the way for the world’s lightest seat to fly in the United States and in every country in the world.

"This certification demonstrates not only the strength and performance of our seats but confirms that innovative technology and passenger comfort can go hand in hand with safety requirements. It’s the first seat with a composite structure to be certified," said Benjamin Saada, Expliseat’s President.

The Titanium Seat, on its way to winning the American market
The "ultra- light" seat made of titanium and composite materials is now ready to fly for American companies. Strength (only 30 parts, compared to 300 on average in other seats) and comfort (5 cm extra legroom) provide practical solutions for airlines and passengers.
"The market in the Americas and the United States is a strategic element in our international expansion programme, and certification from the American aviation authorities means that now we can export our extremely innovative Titanium Seat," said Jean-Charles Samuelian, Managing Director.
