AirGo has launched a new business jet interior concept with an aim of making business jet use more attractive to small and medium sized businesses that fly five hours or more.
The primary aim of the interior is to offer double the number of passengers in the same space by rearranging the seats to deliver a more efficient layout.
It achieves this through a ‘less bulky’ design of seats, clever arrangement and as the ability with the Supernova interior to turn all eight seats into flatbeds. Each seat can be customized with an IFE system, in-seat power, built-in drink cooler and a tray table.
There are 10 private and business jet types that could use Supernova seats; the Gulfstream G280, the Bombardier Challenger 350, the Embraer Praetor 500, the Textron Cessna Longitude and Dassault Falcon 2000S.
This is a practical solution for smaller and medium sized businesses that want the option of business jet operation and yet need the headcount to make the numbers work. With Supernova it brings business jet use into play for more companies.
Secondary is in the construction by achieving weight reduction through a new carbon new microfibre composite which won the company an Airbus award at JEC 2019. The material is as affordable as aluminium but circa 50% lighter due to its chemistry.
The Supernova interior concept can be customised to fit any aircraft with a cabin width of 6ft (1.83m) or higher but it especially targets those that fly longer than five hours, hence international business jet flight.
Alireza Yaghoubi is co-founder and chief technology officer at Airgo Design and the driving force behind the designs. The company will present a seminar on the concept at the Singapore Airshow 2020, 11-16 February 2020.
The company intends to partner with OEMs in providing the interior to market.
