Jet Aviation Basel gains EASA certification for VIP interior on BBJ1
Jet Aviation Basel has received EASA certification for a cabin interior installation completed on a Boeing Business Jet 737-700. The completion was finished three months ahead of schedule. The BBJ1 exterior is now being finished at the company’s paint shop.
The interior was designed Jet Aviation Basel design studio and completed and certified at its completions centre, the Boeing BBJ1 completions project is currently 90 days ahead of schedule.
Adam White, senior director of Completions Engineering at Jet Aviation Basel says: “Out-performing the schedule by such a large margin is a real feat on its own account. To manage this timeline while further developing a completely new soundproofing concept that maintains VIP-level acoustics, however, along with a 30% loss in weight, truly makes this accomplishment all the more remarkable.”
“It is our comprehensive in-house capabilities and teamwork that makes it possible for us to outfit green aircraft with innovative design, state-of-the-art technology and uncompromising luxury inside a timeline that is well below customer expectations.” White adds.
The aircraft is fiited for 13 passengers and features a crew area, modern galley, spacious open-plan dining area and lounge, guest area, master bedroom and a customised master bathroom.
“We leveraged everything we had to complete this light-weight VIP cabin interior.”
Neil Boyle, vice president and general manager of the Jet Aviation Basel completions centre says: “We leveraged everything we had to complete this light-weight VIP cabin interior and are delighted with the optimized sound and completions cycle time. We are continuously investing in new technologies and the training of our employees, and this early completion clearly demonstrates our commitment to delivering the most benefit to our clients.”
