Mirus Kestrel seat receives TSO certification

Mirus Kestrel seat

Aviation Festival AFA 728 x 90Mirus Aircraft Seating announced the Kestrel seat has received its Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) certification. Having met the seat safety standards set by the CAA, the Kestrel seat can now be installed in aircraft. Mirus is already in talks with a number of launch customers regarding their newly certified offering, with further announcements planned in the coming months.

First previewed at the Aircraft Interiors Expo in 2022 and with continual improvements and enhancement since, including reducing the weight to just 6.9kg per passenger fully dressed, Kestrel is supremely robust, significantly lighter and offers more passenger living space and comfort than any comparable seat. Kestrel is now the undisputed sustainable choice for airlines looking to reduce fuel burn and maintenance costs whilst enhancing passenger experience and cabin appearance.

Part of the efficient certification process can be attributed to Mirus’ onsite UKAS ISO 17025 accredited dynamic test laboratory, M-TEST. Opened in April 2023, M-TEST is the UK’s largest commercially available dynamic test facility and allows Mirus to speed up the certification process, whilst also carrying out more tests than would typically be done through the development cycle as the traditional leadtimes and testing costs are no longer a factor.

Marcus Williams, Sales & Marketing Director of Mirus said:  “We are so excited that our latest seat, Kestrel, has received its TSO.  From the feedback we are receiving from airlines who are evaluating it against the current offerings in it’s segment, we are confident that we have now certified what will become the very best seat in its class. Not only is Kestrel considerably lighter than any comparable seat at just 6.9kg per pax,  it’s robust and also offers unbeatable levels of comfort and legroom to enhance passenger experience.  We are looking forward to revealing the initial launch customers very soon.”
