    Rear Sling Seat question.

    Hey all, Just curious about a sling back seat, First off are they considered a legal replacement seat? I know that certain pipers came from the factory with them so I would assume it would be considered standard equipment for those models. So could a guy remove the factory back seat and install a sling seat that came out of Piper as a factory sling seat on a different aircraft? Second, there are serval companies out there making sling seats that have a TSO and other companies don't mention being TSO'd. Do people make a fuss about the TSO or is it more of a "turn a blind eye" kinda thing? Thanks in advance.

    I would very carefully check the definition of minor alteration and go from there.

    Sounds to me like this question could turn into "1/4 mile and blowing paper".
