Duncan Aviation delivered to customer Toll Group NW a Cessna CitationJet that features a “flashy” red and black livery with silver accents and a refurbished interior to match. The twinjet’s paint scheme emulates the livery of an Embraer Phenom 300 that the CJ owner saw at Duncan’s Battle Creek, Michigan facility.
“These models of aircraft have solar reflective values that have to be met for the exterior paint,” said Duncan senior completions sales representative Angie Coleman. “This put our paint and design team to work to find a good match of paint in the solar reflective paint formulas.”
On the inside Duncan did a complete refurbishment of the cabin, using a light neutral tone for the headliner and window panels, cabin veneer with brown-toned stain, and red undertone in a matte finish. Drink rails and table inserts are covered with red leather, while lower sidewalls are fitted with a charcoal gray, diamond-patterned chenille fabric. The cabin seats are covered in black leather with red accent stitching, and a charcoal gray carpet capped off the cabin refresh.
“It’s always a little nerve-racking picking finishes because you don’t know how they will look together, but the Duncan Aviation team guided me through the process and ensured the final product would turn out great,” said Toll Group v-p Kjell Lindberg. “It certainly did.”
