Beechjet Armrest RepairBeechjet Armrest Repair / Seating Solutions
Hawker/Beechjet 400 series with Tossington or Derlan OEM passenger seats have a chronic problem with their adjustable height armrest fatiguing and eventually failing. Passengers will sense that the armrest doesn't feel secure or leans toward the aisle. If not corrected, the bracket cracks and/or the guide rods will break and the arm will stop operating, or the armrest brackets will break and the armrest will come completely loose. Previously, the only option for operators has been to purchase an OEM replacement armrest as welding the cracks proves ineffective. We developed a CRS repair process that not only repairs the inherit design flaw, but prevents further reoccurrence by replacing the brackets with more robust ones and replacing the hollow OEM guide rods with solid ones. Completed repair assembly. With armrest raised, look for cracks at location shown by arrow. Weakened guide rods cannot be seen without disassembly but can be felt when the armrest wobbles at full extension.
