Recaro’s new multi-talent CL5510

Premiere of Recaro business class seat in Hamburg

Recaro Aircraft Seating is introducing a new business class seat at the Aircraft Interiors Expo from March 27 to 29, 2012 in Hamburg. On short-haul flights in regional business class, the multi-talented Comfort Line 5510 plays on center stage.

"Our CL5510 is tailored for regional business class flights up to six hours. It can be perfectly integrated into cabin layouts in wide-body or single-aisle aircraft", explains Thomas Conrady, Vice President Sales at Recaro Aircraft Seating. "Our new seat includes all the features that make traveling a pleasure – a perfect combination of work, dining, entertainment, and relaxation." According to Conrady, the typical Recaro blend of generous living space, outstanding comfort, stowage room, and low weight, carried out in a modern design with a fixed backshell is unbeatable.

Maximum of comfort and space

The CL5510 maximizes living space with a seat pitch of 43 up to 45 inches, generously proportioned legroom in the backshell. The consistent focus on comfort and convenience is enhanced by ergonomic cushions and extra-wide armrests. The headrest features a 6-way adjustment for height and tilt along with folding side wings.

Minimal weight and generous stowage compartments

A combination of lightweight shell, weight-optimized kinematics and modern materials, make the CL5510 a benchmark in its class. No other seat with a fixed backshell and less than 95 kilograms per double (without airbag belt) compares in terms of living space and generous stowage compartments: The generous legroom in the shell can be used as a spacious compartment. Space for magazines, notebooks, or books can be found in the deep literature pocket in the center console. A separate compartment in the shell is designed to store an iPod or iPhone, which can be connected to the adjacent multiport. Coats and jackets can be hung on the coat hook on the aisle side of the seat.

Plenty of flat surface space

Furthermore, the CL5510 offers passengers plenty of flat surface space. A large cocktail table integrated into the center console has a pullout element on the front. A large two-piece dining table for inflight meals or for use as a convenient work- space is integrated into the backshell. Completely extended and folded out, the table offers substantial surface space measuring 11 inches deep by 16 inches wide.

Well organized inflight entertainment

Inflight entertainment is well organized with a multiport unit adjacent to the iPhone holder with connections for PC and iPod or iPhone cable. The seat control panel in the center console features a variety of adjustment options. While the takeoff/ landing position is preset, passengers can individually adjust the backrest angle and the legrest angle. The audio connect unit includes a headphone jack with channel selector and volume control.
