Pats Aircraft Systems has won a major contract to complete a green BBJ2 interior for an Asia-Pacific head-of-state.

The Georgetown, Del.-based completion and refurbishment shop will oversee “all aspects of the highly customized interior, including the integration of the latest available products for passenger comfort, entertainment and utility,” according to Pats v-p of business development Matt Hill.

As with all Boeing Business Jets, the project will include Pats’ auxiliary fuel system, which adds 3,000 gallons of jet-A in six additional tanks and bumps the max range to 5,400 nm.

Pats will also be installing Boeing’s new Sky Interior upgrade kit as part of the staff seating compartment. Boeing describes the upgrade as “the new standard for style and comfort in the single-aisle jetliner market.” Sky Interior will feature sculpted sidewalls and window reveals, larger overhead stowage bins that nevertheless permit more passenger room, an improved entertainment system and LED mood lighting.
