Ruag Aviation is now offering real wood flooring as an option for business aircraft cabins. As a replacement for carpet, the wood flooring adds no weight to the aircraft and is about one-third of an inch thick, Ruag said. It is available as veneer and can be laid in different patterns in an aircraft’s entry, shower, lavatory and/or main cabin. The flooring has a “natural” satin finish and is compatible with diverse floor layouts through the use of rectangular or single curved panels. It can also be personalized with inlays, as well as marquetry and even lighting.
