Responsible Office
AIR-120,  Aviation Safety - Aircraft Certification Service, Aircraft Engineering Division
Description

a.  This AC explains how to gain approval of aircraft seats with integrated electronic components and installed on aircraft.  In it, we focus primarily on seats approved to a technical standard order (TSO).  This AC applies to electronic components integrated into aircraft seats only.  We don’t cover electronic components installed independent of the seat. 

 b. This AC is not mandatory and does not constitute a regulation.  In it, we describe an acceptable means, though it is not the only means, to gain approval to install electronic components integrated in seats on aircraft.  However, if you use the means described in the AC, you must follow it in all important respects.
