Twenty Six Seats In VIP Configuration
Fokker Aircraft Services (FAS) has successfully handed over a
26-seater Head of State VIP configured A320 to Masterjet, based at
Le Bourget, France. This is the first time an A320 with a 26-seat
configuration, certified for commercial and private transport by
the EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency) and the FAA (Federal
Aviation Administration) has been produced.
In working closely with its suppliers FAS managed to obtain
certification by specially adapting the structure and composition
of materials used for cabin linings, monuments, furniture, seating,
carpeting and window shades, including wood veneer and leather,
making them fire resistant to comply with heat release regulations.
Eric Cuppen, Director, Aircraft Completions and Conversions is
quick to point out that new innovation is all apart of what FAS
refer to as 'Aircrafting'. "Fokker is concerned with the
craftsmanship of aircraft maintenance and repair, creating
customised solutions, whether it is in the design of an aircraft
part, component or system or the modification of a pre-existing
part, component or system or indeed in this case the conversion of
an existing aircraft. When there is no specific product or solution
available on the market, we'll engineer and build it ourselves to
enhance our customer's product"
Fokker Aircraft Service is an EASA, GCAA and FAA Part 145
approved maintenance facility. Located in The Netherlands, it
boasts five hangars spanning 16,000m2. At any one time, the
facility is able to accommodate up to four positions for Boeing
737-series and Airbus A320-family aircraft.
FAS' capabilities are increasingly being used for Boeing 737
series aircraft and the Airbus A320 family, along with other
regional aircraft types such as Bombardier.
