VIP Completions has been tasked with a comprehensive interior and exterior refurbishment project on a VIP Boeing 767. The company also consulted on the acquisition of the aircraft, advising on budget and timeline management. The aircraft is scheduled for delivery before the end of the calendar year.
The floorplan has been segmented into six distinct living spaces. The centrepiece will be the main lounge, featuring an 80in home cinema, DJ station with audiophile-calibre sound system and a full dining table. Other compartments include a master en-suite bedroom with a full queen-size bed, and two lounge areas, convertible into bedrooms. The aircraft will seat 33 and comfortably sleep 16 passengers. It will have two galleys, a conference room with seating for eight and four lavatories, two featuring full stand-up showers.
The completely renewed interior will include high-speed internet, HD audio and full spectrum LED lighting, all controlled by a custom CMS.
The exterior of the aircraft will feature a bold modern colour scheme – black, white and pearl with fine accents, including carbon fibre effect on the engine cowlings.
“While we have successfully completed VIP widebody projects in the past – including multiple BBJs, 757s and others – this project is the biggest in our company’s history,” said Ben Shirazi, president, VIP Completions. “Beyond its size and the potential that offers, the 767 stands out from other VIP widebody platforms because of its impressive range, altitude and speed capabilities.
“Upon delivery, it will more closely resemble a luxury home than a business aircraft,” Shirazi continued. “Our talented team of craftsmen are able to take a client’s vision and realise their dreams. By reflecting highly personalised tastes and preferences, selecting the finest materials and incorporating the latest technologies, we deliver unprecedented levels of comfort and luxury, and a totally unique inflight experience.”
The VIP Completions team brings more than 20 years of experience to business aircraft completions and refurbishment, primarily focused on long-range business aircraft.
