Global deliveries of turbine business airplanes increased 7.2 percent in this year’s first quarter over the first quarter of 2013, according to the General Aviation Manufacturers Association. The jump in deliveries will most likely mean a boost to business at centers that perform aircraft completions and refurbishments and companies that provide interior components.
With customers wanting more and more luxury, comfort, technology, dedicated work space and amenities, completion centers are customizing interiors with components that only a few years ago would have seemed unimaginable. Recent projects have included a casino, complete with wet bar and gaming tables; a simulated fireplace in a Boeing 787; and a carbon fiber interior in a Challenger 850 with ebony hardwood veneer accents, white leather upholstered seats and divans in eye-catching, contrasting fabrics.
Whether you’re looking for your own airborne fireplace or just a comfortable place to fire up your laptop, the completion and refurbishment facilities listed here can deliver.
