Ruag Aviation Delivers First Cabin Completion Project

 - May 21, 2013, 11:00 AM
Ruag recently converted this Bombardier CRJ200 to executive configuration, a first for the company.

Ruag Aviation has delivered its first cabin completion project, a Bombardier CRJ200 airliner that was transformed into a 10-seat VIP configuration. The entire cabin, including electrics, was reworked with a luxury interior that included wireless cabin entertainment, private area, club seating and dining areas. The company’s cabin interior program offers a one-stop-shop that covers design consultancy, cabin design, furniture construction, cabin integration and certification. It also offers exterior painting and design services. Ruag’s new ‘design-your-own aircraft’ tool on its website allows viewers to design a custom color scheme on one of six aircraft types.

Another recent achievement was the completion of Ruag’s first D check. Conducted at the company’s Lugano-Agno plant in Italy, a Piaggio P.180 Avanti was completely inspected and overhauled, including the removal and overhaul of the Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A engines and repairs to various elements of the turboprop’s primary and secondary structures. The aircraft also underwent a minor cabin refurbishment. Ruag is authorized to upgrade the Avanti’s Rockwell Collins Pro Line 4 avionics, although that process was not performed on this aircraft.

Meanwhile, Ruag’s Munich facility has been appointed as an authorized interior warranty repair facility and service center for the Embraer Lineage 1000 and expects to add the Legacy 450/500 soon. The company is scheduled to perform its first C check on an Embraer 170 airliner this summer.

With headquarters in Berne, Ruag Aviation (Booth 1071) offers a wide range of services to business aviation and is celebrating the 25th anniversary of its partnership with Dassault Aviation. It is an authorized service center for virtually all types of Falcon aircraft.
