Jet Aviation delivers quietest cabin yet #NBAA
Jet Aviation has delivered its quietest and lightest cabin interior to date, it announced at NBAA-BACE 2022.
The design is made for VVIP jets, which are the largest, most expensive corporate jets available to buy. VVIP jets use the same airframe as commercial aircraft but can have anything from beds to walk-in showers installed in the cabins.
Jet Aviation’s new VVIP cabin design follows more than eight years of research and development in optimising sound and weight. The interior also includes the installation of three 55-inch curved Organic Light Emitting Diodes (OLED) screens integrated on either side of the cabin wall above the window line, following the curvature of the ceilings. Installing the screens into the wall increases space and reduces the weight of the cabin, as no cabinets are required to hold the screens. To ensure these were in line with aviation requirements, Jet Aviation worked with an undisclosed electronics partner on a series of tests and analyses.
The company said the curved screens can be installed in both completion and refurbishment projects.
“To redeliver an aircraft that is not only light, but also exceptionally quiet, is a fantastic achievement, and testament to our continued work and innovation in this area,” said Jeremie Caillet, senior vice president of Regional Operations EMEA, Jet Aviation. “The integration of the curved screens is a further step in our innovation journey as we continue to push the boundaries of VVIP completions.”
He added: “As we strive towards creating the ultimate customer experience, we are excited to continue to lead the industry in developing and shaping what is possible in cabin acoustics.”
Jet Aviation also announced at NBAA-BACE that it is investing in its Montana, Scottsdale and Houston facilities in response to rising demand.
