In this Issue - September 2014

The September 2014 issue is now available online! Packed full of news, interviews and features, including:

Global 7000 and 8000: The latest additions to Bombardier’s Global family – the 7000 and 8000 – are capable of very long flights, so comfort and ergonomics were vitally important to the interior design

Global 7000 mock-up: Building a mock-up large enough to showcase the Global 7000’s long cabin involved a lot of the skills used on an aircraft completion, with added equipment to fulfill the mock-up’s demonstrator role

Completions training: Completion centers are sowing the seeds of a skilled future workforce through apprenticeships, college partnerships and internships

Presentation tools: The technology used to show clients how things could look is changing dramatically. Hand renderings, foam cut-outs and plywood are less commonly used, so what’s on the rise in their stead?

Avanti Evo: With the solid backing of Mubadala, Piaggio Aero has been able to respond to its customers’ feedback, bringing more customization, less noise, and real Italian flair to its updated Avanti

Custom ACJ319: Modern materials and ancient symbols are mixed to create the wow factor on this ACJ319 for a Chinese businessman

Leadership Select: With its pre-customized cabin for narrow-body VIP completions, Lufthansa Technik believes it can marry efficiency with luxury

Design directory: Contact details for VIP aircraft interior designers based in North America, including completion centers with in-house design capabilities

Coffee making: Expectations of coffee have gone through the roof, but serving a gourmet caffeine hit in the air is a lot more complicated than on the ground

NBAA preview: Highlights from the upcoming show, set to be held in Orlando, Florida, USA, on October 21-23

MEBA preview: Innovations set to be displayed at MEBA 2014, to be held in Dubai, UAE, on December 8-10
