Aeroloft, a private rest area above the main deck of the new executive Boeing 747-8, recently passed structural strength and durability testing, according to designer Greenpoint Technologies.

The latest certification test established that “the robust design, engineering and manufacturing accommodates the load borne during flight.” The Kirkland, Wash.-based company’s Greenpoint Products and Services division expects to receive EASA certification in time to begin deliveries in the fourth quarter, according to v-p of engineering Bruce Kay.

As with other independent completion and refurbishment centers, Greenpoint is ramping up its airliner reconfiguration business. The company recently welcomed its 18th Boeing Business Jet, a BBJ3, following modification work by Aviation Technical Services in Everett, Washington.
