Dear Airliner Experts!

I am working on the preliminary designs for a civil cabin simulator. The cabin simulator will be flexible to accommodate different single-aisle aircraft cabins currently in production or in wide use. This may include Boeing 737, Airbus A320, Bombardier CSeries, MD-80 Series, Bombardier CRJ, Embraer E-Series, Bombardier Q300/Q400, and ATR42/72.

What I'm after is the placement of the seat tracks down the length of the aircraft. For each seat track, I'm looking for the distance between the aircraft centerline and the centerline of the seat track.

I understand some aircraft, like the smaller CRJ and Q Series aircraft, the seat track along the windows are elevated and may be at a angle to the floor. I need to know these elevations and angles with respect to the top of the floor (before carpet is installed).

I have the cabin cross section drawings for each airframe. Unfortunately they do not dimension the location of the seat supports.

Does anyone have this information that you can share with us?

You should be able to use scale this data from the online information from the online data provided by the manufactures here are the links to boeing and airbus info.

Thank you Charles III for your post.

I have all of the airport planning manuals for each aircraft which shows the cross section views of the aircraft cabins. I have used the Photoshop measure tool but the resolution too poor to get an accurate measurement. Plus, I'm not sure if the seats are drawn to scale in some of these documents.

I guess the next step is to take out a measuring tape on my next flights and measure it myself after everyone deplanes. It will take awhile for me to capture all of the aircraft (B737, A320, MD80, CRJ, ESeries) and the CS100 is not quite flying yet (but hopefully soon!).

Of course, I will be happy to accept any of the forum members measurements on their flights, wherever they are!
