AMAC starts work on VIP 747 8i aircraft
AMAC Aerospace, the Swiss-based provider of corporate aviation maintenance and completion services has just started work on its third widebody, a Boeing 747-8i. The work, for an unnamed VIP Middle East private customer, represents a full two-year contract and calls for full nose to tail outfitting.
Activity will be carried out at AMAC’s Euroairport Basel Mulhouse facilities.
The production programme will feature a new integrated concept featuring Greenpoint Technologies ‘Overhead Space Utilization’ (OSU) loft, designed for multiple sleeper berths or lounges. AMAC’s engineering team shall also work on the installation of private and work areas within the VIP cabin as well as audio vusual equipment, SATCOM, VIP lavatories, external cameras and RGB mood lightning.
“We are extremely pleased to be taking on this new and highly prestigious contract for an existing customer in the Middle East and AMAC will be dedicating a sizeable team to the project,” said Bernd Schramm, AMAC group chief operating officer.
The undertaking of this project follows hard on the heels of AMAC successfully completing a Boeing 777-200LR. The aircraft was delivered to the Middle East in October.
