SPIRIT AERONAUTICS DELIVERS STUNNING AIRCRAFT CARBON FIBER ACCENTED INTERIOR

May 18, 2015, Columbus, Ohio … Spirit Aeronautics recently returned a Cessna Citation 650 aircraft back to its owner after a total interior refurbishment utilizing carbon fiber accents and design elements that delivered a stunning result. While not a typical type or size of aircraft for refurbishment at Spirit Aeronautics, the design and details included elements found on much larger aircraft such as carbon fiber inlays, blackened wood laminates, multi-layer high build gloss coatings, new Corian countertops and multi-layer foam seats with clean minimalist lines and tight stitching.

“From the beginning of this project the client was attracted to clean European styling combined with western comfort which is very challenging in an aircraft of this size”, stated Tony Bailey, President & COO of Spirit Aeronautics. “Top it off; the client did not want to change the certification basis of the aircraft so we had to look for stylings that gave a minimalist impression without adding or removing any of the current furnishings.”

The result was deep black wood laminates accented with carbon fiber inlays on the solid surfaces including the Drink Rails, Galley and Lavatory. The seats were modernized using high end graphite charcoal grey leather combined with tight stitching and multi-layer hand shaped foam with contoured lumbar for a sleek and simple appearance. The carpet was specifically crafted for this application utilizing a two tone block pattern that gives the illusion of warm depth making the walkways appear larger. In addition, the interior was further updated with brushed nickel plating on all the metal surfaces, new LED Lighting and upgrades in the In-Flight Entertainment (IFE) system.

“This aircraft was a challenge but we were fortunate to have a great customer with exceptional taste to work with”, continued Bailey. “Some of the obstacles we faced with this project were not typical with a traditional interior. For example, the wood and carbon fiber surfaces required additional layers during the high gloss finish process which induced trim and fit problems that had to be meticulously resolved. Compounding the problem was the black color which highlighted every imperfection and blemish requiring extra care and constant touch-up. In addition, the customer only had a very narrow window for all of the work to be completed which required long hours and amazing dedication from our team to get it accomplished. In the end, the result is an absolutely beautiful interior!”

The Citation 650 was refurbished for a confidential customer and is believed to be the first of its type with the inclusion of carbon fiber accents on black wood stylings. It is a very modern and sleek design with all the attitude of a Formula One race car!
