Decrane, Propel Designs Will Finish The Passenger Cabin
Two respected aircraft interior specialists have been chosen by
Piper Aircraft for the PiperJet, the company's single-engine entry
in the very light jet market.
DeCrane Aerospace and Propel Designs have been selected
to integrate passenger cabin interior improvements verified by
the company's proof of concept flight-testing regimen and through
continuous dialog with current and future PiperJet customers.
"We are extremely pleased to be partnering with aircraft
interior industry leader DeCrane Aerospace and the skilled creative
talents of Propel Designs as the PiperJet program continues to gain
momentum," said Piper President/CEO Kevin Gould. "DeCrane and
Propel add to the exceptional talent pool we have assembled to
solidify our interior design improvements."
"Numerous meetings and conversations with PiperJet buyers have
reaffirmed many of our design parameters for the interior and even
led us to make some additional improvements that reflect the
valuable input from both our current customers and future
customers," said Randy Groom, Piper executive vice president. "The
interior upgrades will result in a PiperJet even more attuned
specifically to today's competitive economic environment and to
tomorrow's changing requirements."
"In addition, test flights being flown by the PiperJet
proof-of-concept vehicle have verified our expectations and helped
us decide on further enhancements," Groom added. Piper is scheduled
to announce specific aircraft interior improvements during the
National Business Aviation Association annual meeting and
convention this fall in Atlanta.
