Greenpoint Techologies’ Aeroloft kit for the 747-8 provides eight private sleeping berths and a changing room.

Greenpoint Technologies has delivered its first Aeroloft kit, a private rest area designed to be part of the total cabin completion of an executive Boeing 747-8.

The Aeroloft is located in the area above the main deck and aft of the “hump” in executive versions of the 747-8. For this particular aircraft, the Aeroloft was completed in kit form and delivered by Greenpoint to Boeing’s Global Transport & Executive Systems facility in Wichita for installation.

The airplane with the Aeroloft installed, has since been delivered to Lufthansa Technik in Hamburg, Germany, for outfitting of the main cabin.Greenpoint expects to deliver two more Aeroloft kits for 747-8 customers by the end of 2012.

The Aeroloft was designed, developed and manufactured by Greenpoint at its Kirkland, Wash. facilities. It adds 393 sq ft to the 5,179 sq ft on the main deck and holds eight private berths and a changing room. Greenpoint also recently celebrated delivery of its 18th BBJ interior, this to an unidentified customer. “This is my second VIP completion project with Greenpoint,” said Larry Hinebaugh, BBJ completions manager. “The mix of disciplined processes coupled with flexibility to adapt and meet the customer’s needs is pivotal in producing an exceptional aircraft interior. It is a team environment that works together for the same goal of exceeding the customer’s expectations.”

Greenpoint also anticipates delivering a BBJ3 before the end of the year.
