VIP Completions has seen increased demand for refreshing soft goods, having recently delivered a number of such projects to clients.
The team brings more than 20 years of experience to business aircraft completions and refurbishment, primarily focused on long-range business aircraft.
The term ‘soft goods’ encompasses all upholstery, including carpets, seat covers and curtains, plus movable appointments such as cushions and blankets.
While the VIP Completions team performs large-scale interior and exterior aircraft refurbishment projects, soft goods generally comprise an important element within end-to-end projects.
“We are seeing more and more clients who want to refresh their aircraft interiors without necessarily undertaking the hard work and extended downtime that usually comes with a full-scale refurbishment,” said Ben Shirazi, president, VIP Completions. “To use a homeowners’ metaphor, it’s like choosing redecoration over renovation.”
“We’re best known for big refurb projects, but we’ve always been very good at the delicate touches too,” Shirazi continued. “Our team invests the same high degree of attention and care into all projects, regardless of scope. Aircraft owners wanting to update decors may benefit greatly from a refresh project that is comparatively quick and easy, while having a major positive impact on their enjoyment of the inflight experience.”
Through the fourth quarter of 2023, VIP Completions will further promote soft goods refresh projects. The focus will be on long-range to large business aircraft including the Bombardier Global and Challenger series; Gulfstream G500 and G400 series; and Dassault Falcon 7X, 900 and 2000 series.
