Fokker Aircraft Services now offers re-skinning

Netherlands-based Fokker Aircraft Services (FAS) has introduced re-skinning to its MRO capabilities. A brand-new vacuum applicator was installed in FAS’s interior shop in 2010, enabling the company to easily re-skin the side panels, luggage bins and ceiling panels of aircraft interiors, no matter the size or aircraft type. The company says any print of certified material can be applied.

“Re-skinning is a much more economical solution for older aircraft than installing a complete new interior,” said Robert Koolen, FAS’s sales manager for airframe MRO. “With so many cost-conscious operators actively seeking ways to prolong the life of their investment, they quickly recognise that re-skinning offers an easy, effective and affordable alternative.”

The vacuum applicator is also being used to facilitate FAS’s VIP completions activities in its Aircraft Conversions and Completion Centre, and is part of the company’s overall strategy to increase its back-shop capabilities. Because the machine is not type-specific, it is already being used at FAS to refurbish Fokker 100s and F28s, as well as Boeing, Airbus, Bombardier and Embraer aircraft.
