A complete set of composite cockpit floor panels were recently acquired. The panels, when installed, lie on top of the aircraft steel frame. The pedestal, sidestick consoles, side bins, and aircraft seats and a carpet overlay are secured onto the floor panels.
A structural base will need to be carefully designed to fit the OEM floor boards; it must also have the integrity to hold and support the dual link rudder pedals, the pilot seats and the Captain, FO and a 3rd or 4th person occupancy.

Hello Ben, can you say from which material the panels are made of? Best regards, Marco
Hi Marco, AFAIK its a complex composite structure; not too sure of the exact materials
