L-3 Platform Integration has won a contract to outfit the cabin of a 747-8i for an unidentified customer who has been a client for 20 years.

The interior finish work and exterior paint will be performed at L-3’s VIP and head-of-state completion center in Waco, Texas.

L-3 reports increased cabin outfitting activity on a variety of platforms, including the Airbus A340, A350 and A380, and Boeing’s 787 and 747-8i. An L-3 source said the company was the first to deliver an outfitted executive A340 and 777, “and our team is working diligently to be the first to deliver a 747-8i.” Over the past 20 years, L-3 has delivered some 50 outfitted single- and twin-aisle aircraft.
