Jet Aviation made an announcement at EBACE about the redelivery of three business jets. The three aircraft — an Airbus ACJ319, an ACJ330 and a Boeing BBJ3 — were all designed and completed at its Basel facility.
The ACJ319 and ACJ330 were completed in 10 months and 14 months respectively, setting new industry benchmarks. Both planes were considerably lighter than the mandated requirements, even though custom designs and high-end finishes were used.
This helped the ACJ330 meet the customer’s mission requirement for a plane that can fly non-stop from Riyadh to Los Angeles.
Soundproofing helps to decrease inflight dBSIL readings to the mid-40s. This has been achieved by means of technology from Gulfstream, which permits accurate prediction and targeted soundproofing.
The ACJ319 includes a flexible internal design with separate zones to accommodate different numbers of passengers. It includes a flexible formal seating arrangement in the aft cabin, a mid-bedroom with a big en suite bathroom, a spacious guest lavatory, and a majlis area for 8 passengers.
According to Neil Boyle, senior VP and general manager at Jet Aviation in Basel, they are pleased to have delivered 2 complementary interiors that represent the customized style and luxury of the original concept. It was a real example of partnership and professionalism.
The interior of the BBJ3 is inspired by the golden age of travel. It includes a bold blue and red color scheme, carpeting with vintage patterns and floral motifs. In the dining and lounge areas, seating is fully integrated into leather sofas and wingback leather armchairs that have been custom-made by Jet Aviation.
The aircrafts aft section includes economy and business seating, which complements the VIP design elements.
