No, it’s not the world’s most exotic sunroof. Greenpoint Technologies unveiled a one-20th-scale version of a 747-8 featuring a VVIP interior.

Aircraft completion company Greenpoint Technologies (Booth 1027) has unveiled at EBACE a one-twentieth-scale version of a 747-8 featuring a VVIP interior displaying the company’s signature design capabilities. The scale model’s interior appointments include Greenpoint’s Aeroloft, which provides additional passenger rest space above the main cabin, and the Aerolift, an elevator that allows secure access into the aircraft from the ground.

“The interior represents the dynamics of flight with the artistry of timeless design,” said Annika Wicklund, Greenpoint’s design manager. “Artful and functional, it showcases the 21st century balanced with the legacy of travel. The exterior livery design symbolizes patterns inspired by the wings of a Gyrfalcon, the largest of the falcon species and known for its long-distance range.”

An authorized Boeing Business Jets completion center, Kirkland, Washington-based Greenpoint performs turnkey completions exclusively on Boeing aircraft, using in-house design, engineering, manufacturing, installation, cabinetry and custom-machined parts capabilities. During its 25 years of private ownership, Greenpoint has had a 99-percent on-time delivery rate, according to the company.
