gdc technics produces a boeing 787 vvip cabin weighing 20% less than industry estimates
February 21, 2018
GDC Technics has weighed the first of their twin VVIP B787-8s. This aircraft is complete with a sophisticated VVIP head-of-state cabin that integrates cutting edge technologies along with state of the art materials and engineering solutions, creating maximum luxury only found in a VVIP aircraft.
The aircraft is equipped with the latest connectivity and passenger comfort capabilities; including an ARINC 791 Ka-Band Antenna (an industry first on a VVIP B787), Iridium Antenna, SATCOM Antenna-R, forward-looking camera, therapeutic O2 discharge port, quad camera, downward zoom camera, tail fin camera, and Satellite TV antenna. The cabin has a Sound Interference Level (SIL) of 52dB, allowing for a much quieter cabin in flight. Along with a quieter cabin, additional humidification is provided for a better passenger experience during long haul flights. In addition, the B787 is complete with live television capabilities, a first for any VVIP B787.
“This Boeing 787 project is a testimony to the success of our strategy focusing on developing new, innovative, engineering and production techniques. We want to ensure that the cabins we engineer and build match the next generation airplanes we install them in,” says Mohammed Alzeer, General Partner of GDC Technics. “The interior weight of our B787 was 20% lighter than industry estimates, providing our clients with an operational advantage and fuel savings throughout the life of their aircraft.”
