      Acro Aircraft Seating designs and manufactures aircraft passenger seats which enable an airline to reduce operating cost, improve passenger on-board experience and contribute to carbon emissions reduction. Acro Aircraft Seating's latest products have been designed with the aim of balancing the needs of airlines and passengers. Acro's use of a composite backrest structure in conjunction with a monospar chassis gives better legroom at 28" pitch than legacy seats at 30". With 50,000 seats in service, and maintenance costs of less than $1 per passenger per year, Acro is set to continue its remarkable growth. They are now looking for a Senior Development Engineer to be based at their HQ near Crawley.
