Aircraft Seats For Trade Show

Wed Jun 13, 2012 7:00 pm

Hi folks,

I realize this is a long shot, but will try.

I'm looking for four First Class seats to use for a booth I am putting together for a trade show. I've reached out to all of my aviation friends, AAR, Regent, and the IND airport, and nada... nothing.

Would anyone have a suggestion where else I could look?

Thanks so much!

- Chris

Start calling boneyards...somebody's probably still got something with first class seats in it.

Try the Trade-A-Plane classifieds...I'm not sure if its in paper form anymore. If it is, proceed to the nearest GA airport and pick up a copy at the FBO   If it isn't, google it. They are online too...but you do have to pay a fee to use the online form.

BTW, Trade-A-Plane no longer charges a fee to look at the ads online, I guess they are just charging those who advertise now. However, when I looked yesterday, no airliner seats, just bizjet and GA seats...but I have seen them for sale in there in the past.

Look on ebay...guy named "aircraftstock", he has an ebay store. Saw first class Blue Leather seats w armrest last week. I have other sources if you can't find this guy. Also, "the aviation warehouse in CA" and "Doug Scroggins Aviation".
Another site..."Once aloft". Think they still exist...

Those are excellent leads, thanks Soon7x7! The shipping alone here to Indy would price that out for us though, but I appreciate your suggestions!

roger...I sent a 747 TWA first class seat to Hawaii from New York I paid $160.00. I shrink wrapped and banded it to a palette...was fairly inexpensive.
