New Delhi, May 30, 2018: Aircraft completions is one of Jet Aviation’s core businesses, and to highlight the refurbishment/retrofit/modification and upgrade (RMU) capabilities of its completion and maintenance centers in Basel, Geneva, and Singapore, the Zurich-based company has launched a new video at EBACE to demonstrate what motivates its designers.
“The video provides a different and exciting visual representation of our inspirational process as we translate our customers’ vision into reality,” explained Tommi Krell, the company’s head of global RMU/MRO marketing. “We created this video in the studio and on site, transforming some of our facilities into imaginative and unexpected movie sets to demonstrate our comprehensive refurbishment capabilities and our passion for the work that we do, from inspiration to execution.”
The video can be seen in Geneva at the General Dynamics subsidiary’s booth (A18), illustrating how the process begins with “freeing yourself from any limitations, any pre-conceptions.” Jet Aviation’s dedicated design studio at Basel supports aircraft owners and operators in developing a “unique style and vision” when it comes to replacing worn or dated interiors and exteriors, the company said according to ainonline.com.
“We are free at the design studio in Basel to let our inspiration push boundaries for our customers because we are supported by all of Jet’s workshops and craftsmen who help breathe life into our designs,” noted Simon Koenig, director of interior design refurbishment. “Innovation backed by trusted craftsmanship is essential for a stunning interior, ensuring that flawless, lasting finish on a beautiful veneer and that perfectly sewn seam that embodies quality.”
In addition to the in-house design and engineering departments, the Basel location has on-site cabinetry, upholstery, sheet metal, composite, and paint shops. Its more than 1,600 professionals can outfit aircraft as large as an Airbus A380 or Boeing 747, and have already completed private versions of nearly all major commercial aircraft currently in service.
