Patent
Gulfstream Aerospace | Date: 2015-10-23

The disclosed embodiments relate to an aircraft having an in-flight leveling system for a seat onboard the aircraft that includes a swivel mechanism providing selective rotational movement of the a rear portion of the seat to compensate for an angle of inclination of the aircraft during flight. A locking mechanism is coupled to the swivel mechanism to retain the seat in a first position for use on the ground and a second position for use during flight. An actuator moves the locking mechanism between a locked condition and an unlocked condition permitting the seat to move between the first position to the second position enabling the seat to be substantially level when the aircraft is on the ground and during flight.

A flight deck arrangement includes, but is not limited to, a window. The flight deck arrangement further includes a surface disposed proximate the window and positioned below the window. The flight deck arrangement further includes a rail mounted to the surface. The rail is disposed proximate the window and positioned below the window. The rail extends along the surface in a direction generally aligned with a lower portion of the window. The flight deck arrangement still further includes a visor mounted to the rail and selectively positionable along the rail.

A console assembly for use on a flight deck of an aircraft includes, but is not limited to, a console having a recess. The recess has an opening. The console assembly further includes a mounting assembly mounted within the recess. The console assembly further includes a support surface mounted to the mounting assembly. The console assembly further includes a closeout panel that is mounted to the support surface. The support surface fits within the recess. The mounting assembly facilitates movement of the support surface between a retracted and a deployed position. The support surface is disposed within the recess while in the retracted position and outside of the recess while in the deployed position. The closeout panel is disposed at a location on the support surface that causes the closeout panel to close the opening of the recess when the support surface is in the retracted position.

An aircrew seat for use in a flight deck includes, but is not limited to, a seat assembly that includes a seat back. The seat assembly is configured to be mounted in the flight deck. The aircrew seat further includes, but is not limited to, an armrest that is mounted to a side of the seat back. An end of the armrest is configured to move fore and aft between an extended position and a retracted position.


Aircraft communications networks, network devices, and methods of determining compatibility on an aircraft communications network are disclosed herein. The aircraft communications network includes, but is not limited to, a communications bus, a first network device, and a second network device. The first network device is communicatively coupled with the communications bus and is configured to publish on the communications bus a configuration manifest that describes a compatible configuration of hardware and software for the aircraft communications network. The second network device is communicatively coupled with the communications bus and is configured to receive the configuration manifest from the first network device over the communications bus, compare the configuration manifest to a second hardware and software profile that describes the second network device, and disable outputs of the second network device in response to detecting that the configuration manifest differs from the second hardware and software profile.
