C&L Aviation Services has signed a contract for multiple ERJ-135 and -145 “semi-private” aircraft modifications. The project, which follows C&L’s similar upgrades on more than 20 ERJ-135s thus far, includes converting the aircraft to a 16- to 23-seat, 1+1 configuration with a flat-floor modification, removal of overhead bins, and installation of a Bongiovi speakerless cabin audio system and onboard Wi-Fi. Each seat will have upgraded leather, in-seat power, and LED lighting, the company said.

“C&L has been committed to providing a full suite of services to Embraer operators for years,” said senior v-p of MRO business development Calvin Tuitt. “We believe these solutions can be best accomplished by aftermarket facilities like ours because of our experience, flexibility, and cost-saving processes.”

Besides cabin refurbishments, C&L also provides on-site engineering, avionics support, aircraft exterior painting, and heavy maintenance services. The Bangor, Maine-based company also carries a large inventory of ERJ parts in its warehouse.
