Aerocon Engineering has signed a contract with an undisclosed customer to design a cabin noise-reduction system for a head-of-state 747-8i.

According to CEO Benny Younesi, the Van Nuys, Calif.-based company’s latest system upgrade will be “lighter, more efficient, more cost effective and easier to maintain.” The company intends to seek STC approval from both EASA and the FAA.

While Younesi said he cannot disclose details as to the expected average cabin noise level for the 747-8i project, he concedes it is the most challenging to date in terms of weight and noise reduction. On past projects, Aerocon has reduced cabin noise levels in single-aisle bizliners to as low as 48 dB(SIL).
