The first-time delivery of an executive aircraft completion project in February by SR Technics was also an on-time delivery that went to an undisclosed Middle East customer.
A spokesman for the Zurich, Switzerland-based executive cabin outfitter declined to name the model or make of the airplane but said it was reconfigured from a conventional widebody airliner layout. As part of a major modification, the interior was equipped with a cabin management system, in-flight entertainment package and such amenities as a VIP lounge and meeting room, and concierge facilities.
“Our ability to offer VIP completion services in parallel with MRO activities brings many advantages, not the least [of which] is reducing down-time when the aircraft is non-operational,” said SR Technics president André Wall. He added that the company has already signed a memorandum of understanding for its second executive aircraft.
SR Technics, part of the Mubadala Aerospace MRO network, opened for business at its 15,700-sq-ft hangar at Zurich, International Airport in May 2011.
