Seat Overhaul Service Offerings at Dretloh

Aircraft Overhaul and Refurbishment Services

According to the Federal Aviation Administration, the term overhaul from Title 14 CFR part 43, § 43.2(a) essentially defines an overhaul as disassembly, cleaning, inspection, repair, reassembly, and testing. The primary intent of overhauling is to take an item and restore it. Restoration affords that the item remains in good condition for a specific amount of time. This specified time period is referred to as the “time between overhauls or (TBO).”

Inspection First

The inspection part of the overhaul process is crucial. At Dretloh, we utilize the I.R.A.N (Inspect and Repair As Necessary) method so that we meet your needs with services exactly where you need them. During the inspection phase, a mechanic may find a part that is still functioning and does not appear to be broken.

The mechanic may be prompted to replace the part. In these instances, the mechanic is following the requirements set by the manufacturer and overhaul limits. These manufacturer limits force replacement because the part may not make it to the next overhaul period.

Modification Considerations

When considering modifications, upgrades, or improvements to existing standards, we offer our clients a variety of options. These options include full seat overhaul service of aircraft seat: cushions, dress covers, plastics, structural parts, hardware replacement, as well as in-flight entertainment or IFE solutions.

Upgrade Your IFE or IFEC

IFE upgrades include the latest standards in technology. Upgrades to tech on an aircraft include monitor screens, power supplies, USD and power outlets. Anything related to electrical such as harnesses and new fairings is regularly manufactured and installed according to the installation kit.

Furthermore, we supply portable or in seat solutions for aircraft providing in-flight entertainment and connectivity or IFEC. In the case that our client orders these services, we take care of everything. From the initial system evaluation to the execution of services, we provide recommendations on certification, integration, and installation.

In addition, we have the capability to modify 9g and 16g seats to meet specific needs and layout of passenger accommodation or LOPA requirements.
