Aircraft services and systems integrator Emteq has received a contract from Hawker Beechcraft for installation of the New Berlin, Wis. firm's new FAA-certified seat heaters in the Wichita aircraft manufacturer's King Airs. Plans exist to introduce similar seat heaters into Hawker business jets, as well as Beechcraft Baron and Bonanza models, according to Emteq president Jerry Jendusa. The seats will also be available for models from other aircraft manufacturers. The design includes individually adjusted lumbar and heat features, as well as an automatic shut-off system.
