Good day, welcome to the Cove! :bigwave:

You haven't specified which airline you are intending to market to, or whether your seat covers are for new, replacement or modification.

But I found a Federal Aviation Administration circular for you: Approval of Modified Seating Systems Initially Approved Under a Technical Standard Order.

Beyond this I recommend asking the customers you wish to market to. SAE has the Guidelines for Development of Civil Aircraft and Systems and then there's the aerospace quality management system standard AS91000. Your customers might expect certification under that standard.

I hope this helps!

If your question is which standard in the ISO 9001 family should you seek registration to, it depends.

Most likely it would be to AS9100. That is the standard preferred for companies manufacturing parts for aircraft.

If you are repairing seats, you might be able to fit under AS9110.

If you want to have a quality management system, and your customer is not requiring you to be registered to either of the AS9100 standards, you may find ISO 9001 to be satisfactory.

No matter what, you will need to comply with certain FAA requirements, especially for validation of flame retardant properties of the seat covers.

Additionally, beyond the ISO family, the FAA may want you to fall under one of the FAA repair scheme standards (that is become an FAA Repair Station).

Someone with more familiarity with FAA Repair Stations may be able to better answer your question.

I know this is an old thread, BUT...

Are you planning to sell the seat covers as spare parts or only replace them while the aircraft is undergoing maintenance?

If you are a Part 145 Repair Station, you can replace parts with manufactured parts as long as the replacement part is equivalent to the original. This can be substantiated through testing or an approval from the OEM. The manufactured part must have its own part number identified on the tag and the original P/N must be displayed as well.

Since this is a seat (assuming that it has TSO)... You do not want to go the testing route. A statement from the Seat OEM stating that the structural integrity is maintained is sufficient.

If you want to sell the seat cover as a piece part, you may want to look at PMA.
