Associated Air Center (AAC) has completed and redelivered the company’s first VVIP Boeing 747-8 for a Middle-Eastern Head of State customer. The aircraft departed 35 days ahead of the contractual redelivery schedule. Following a thorough review of several cabin design concepts offered by several outside designers, the customer chose AAC’s in-house design department to create an elegant, contemporary interior featuring purpose-specific cabin zones (resting, meeting, dining, lounging, gaming and medical areas).

 

The 445m² upper and main deck cabins were supplemented with the integration of a 36.5m² module installed above the aft passenger cabin, accommodating eight private sleeping compartments and a changing area. The VVIP cabin systems feature AVOD available to all passengers through in-arm, personal, LCD touchscreens and large 55 inch bulkhead mounted LED monitors, providing passengers with a large library of HD videos and a Passenger Flight Information System (PFIS) providing HD, 3D, worldwide moving maps and aircraft location. In addition, the cabin includes Multi-Region Satellite TV, Satcom Broad Band (SBB) allowing access to the internet and video conferencing, in-seat outlets for charging Personal Electronic Devices (PEDs), external HD cameras for landscape viewing, LED mood lighting providing an array of pre-programmed scenarios, and a multi-zonal cabin humidification system to improve passenger comfort during long missions. Additional potable and grey water tanks were installed to support the integration of nine lavatories, three of which are equipped with showers and three strategically located galley complexes.

 

AAC’s in-house certification Organizational Designation Authorization (ODA) team, working with multiple aviation regulatory agencies, obtained several FAA STCs applicable to this highly customised cabin configuration, as well as other EASA and customer country validations.
