1st 'Head-Of-State' A320 Corporate Airliner Delivered By Fokker

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.
