Tempe, Ariz. – April 7, 2010 – Associated Air Center (AAC) has recently delivered two Boeing Business Jets (BBJ) as well as its 13th Airbus Corporate Jet (ACJ). These deliveries represent AAC’s 17th and 18th BBJ completions since becoming a BBJ-Approved Completion and Service Center in 2001.
All three aircraft were re-delivered with well-appointed interior configurations, including highly desired options such as external cameras, moving map/flight information systems, high-end in-flight entertainment (IFE) systems consisting of High Definition (HD) capable Audio and Video-on-Demand (AVOD) systems serving several multi-zone surround sound systems. They were also equipped with High Speed Data (HSD) satellite communication systems capable of voice/fax/data transmissions and Internet access.
The systems installed on these aircraft included additional potable water tanks, comprehensive cabin insulation systems to provide a quiet cabin environment and a centralized cabin humidifier system. All these items were designed to improve the cabin environment and reduce passenger and crew fatigue associated with ultra-long range missions.
The 17th BBJ aircraft was completed for an Eastern European client and was designed by Peder Eidsgaard, a well known London-based aircraft and yacht interior designer appointed by the owner.
