The first of its kind, this lightweight, fully contained and highly mobile crew rest unit was designed and built for Austrian Airlines for use aboard multiple 767 aircraft with flight times exceeding 11 hours. Consisting of two parts, a vestibule in the cabin with an integral ladder assembly and a mobile crew rest unit that resides in the cargo area, the system allows the operator to maximize use of space while providing enhanced rest facilities for its pilots and crew. The first of two units to be built, TIMCO Aerosystems worked with Austrian Airlines to translate initial performance specifications into final engineering drawings. The final unit, which sleeps six comfortably and utilizes quick connects for all electrical and other environmental and safety components, can be positioned in the aircraft in under 30 minutes. The units are exceptionally strong and soundproof, yet they are light weight, utilizing advanced composites manufactured and fitted in the company's integral composites facility. TIMCO Aerosystems handled each phase — from initial design through cabin modification and certification services.
