Abstract : This report discusses selected engineering anthropometric design criteria for reclining cockpit seats. The reclining back-rest positions selected were 13, 27, 51 and 65 deg from the vertical line through the seat reference point (SRP). Two seat pan angles of 10 and 20 deg were utilized. Three seating components were considered in this report, these are: the head rest, arm rest, and foot rest. The specific engineering anthropometric design parameters addressed were: the head rest hinge point location, arm rest location and orientation in space as the seat reclines, location of foot rests and the synchronization of arm rest movement with back rest inclination.
