|International Aero assists purchasers
of new large and mid-size corporate aircraft with the selection
of manufacturer presented options for exterior pattern, veneers,
cabinetry, seating, fabrics and more, and by pointing out additional
options, which may be available. By managing the entire outfitting
process, IAE can safeguard the integrity of your design, assuring
that the highest quality standards are met thereby avoiding
In the case of the purchase new Boeing Business Jets or modification
of used aircraft, first you have to select a designer to create
an interior layout as well as an exterior paint scheme; then
you have to find the right facilities for application. Following
this, you need to select resources to engineer and fabricate
the interior along with any additional avionics or cabin entertainment
systems desired. Finding all these necessary resources and coordinating
their activities can be a daunting task.
In all cases, we carefully monitor and inspect all preparation
work, exterior pattern layout, review all interior outfitting
or refurbishing quality and provide all quality control up to
final acceptance. As you can imagine, the impact of the decisions
made here can have significant consequences in terms of both
cost and downtime. You need an expert to make it all happen.
The fact is that
many manufacturers and outfitting centers often make recommendations
that are in their best interest, not yours. IA oversees and
works in your best interest to make sure that the completion
of every facet of your project meets your specifications and
the highest standards. By providing the integrated resources
and project management you need, we can ensure a take-off that’s
both on time and on budget.
Your IA project manager is available every day to assure your
project is progressing as planned and to answer any questions,
which may arise. As with any large engineering project, while
the general scope of the project may be defined in the design
phase, there are generally hundreds, if not thousands, of details
that require decisions throughout the process. Most customers
cannot afford to spend the time necessary to deal with all the
day-to-day decisions required to stay on schedule.
We not only deal with all of these issues, we provide our clients
with weekly reports about the status of their project along
with photographs of work in progress. Once the project is completed,
we accompany the customer during the final test flight and acceptance
process and document any discrepancies that may be found. After
delivery, we continue to track and manage any warranty issues,
helping you to have any such issues resolved.
As a buyer of a large cabin aircraft,
you are faced with many challenges and decisions regarding outfitting
such as exterior painting, interior configuration, material
selection and much, much more before it can take flight.
