GDC Technics delivers weight savings on head-of-state B777 completion


The latest head-of-state B777 completed by GDC Technics of Fort Worth, Texas, came in 1,000 lbs below project estimates.

The customised cabin is equipped with a security system and forward-looking, quad, downward zoom and tail-fin cameras, as well as a dual L band and satcom system, Ka-band antenna, Iridium system and satellite TV antenna providing live 4K television.

The wide-body also has a lower lobe crew rest compartment and unique design systems allowing for three custom showers with on-demand hot water heaters. Bespoke design pieces include 3D-printed decorative light fixtures, embossed panels with embroidery and decorative stitching, certified decorative lamps and sconces, and FAA-approved side-facing taxi, take-off and landing (TTL) seats.

“With this aircraft, GDC Technics continues to prove our industry-leading expertise, skills and abilities to succeed in aircraft modification programmes,” said Brad Foreman, CEO at GDC Technics. “We are continuing our trend on delivering aircraft with innovative designs and nanotechnology materials that are far below the estimated weight – resulting in a more fuel-efficient and longer range aircraft.”
