Meticulously designing, developing, fitting and certifying an aircraft interior is one of the most exciting challenges our team faces here at RAS Completions. Our London based team has over 20 years’ experience in delivering stunning aircraft interiors from concept to completion, which rightfully exceed expectations.
For the team, each private aircraft interior design starts with the client. The team work tirelessly to carefully define the style, purpose and requirements of the aircraft interior. This ensures the creation of a fit for purpose interior, perfectly matched to an individual’s tastes and considerations.
The results of this approach are simple: beautifully crafted aircraft interiors, which perform.
Interior Design ProcessWhen it comes to aircraft interior design, a one size fits all approach does not work, that’s why prior to starting any design project, our team carries out a full needs analysis. This needs analysis covers a wide variety of topics including:
- Functionality Requirements
- Communication & Entertainment Requirements
- Desired Materials
- Desired Design & Features
- Re-sale Values
The answers to the above remain at the forefront of the minds of our design team, who excel in matching exclusive materials and interiors to a diverse set of clients, which have included: sports teams, royalty, businesses and individuals. Expertise at all stages of the process ensures that every design produced is fully compliant with aviation regulations.
Design ConceptTaking into consideration each unique requirement, dreams and ideas are turned into a reality with the use of 3D and 2D modelling. At this concept stage the interior will represent an interior which mirrors personal tastes, in a layout optimised for both functionality and comfort.
Tech SpecFurther utilising techniques such as 2D modelling and technical drawings, a list of requirements are drafted. This specification is a key phase in turning an aircraft interior dream into a reality. The specification contains all technical and electrical drawings, as well as materials and products which are to be used – which may include lighting, appliances and features.
Supply ChainOver the last 20 years, we have worked hard to build up strong relationships with the world’s leading aircraft interior suppliers. Furthermore, our extensive facilities include air side workshop hangers which allow us to manufacture many components in house, our in house capabilities include: fabrication, soft furnishings and composite manufacturing, as well as the ability to create all levels of interior paint finishes, VVIP wood veneers and lacquers.
This unique approach allows us to create perfectly designed, manufactured aircraft components of an unrivalled durability, which simply aren’t available as off the shelf products.
CompletionInstead of handing over your aircraft to a third party company for completion, we achieve our excellent results through seeing a project through from design to completion. Our expert craftsmen fit your aircraft out with utmost care and attention, ensuring that the same level of craftsmanship and service is delivered at all stages. All work is carried out in our custom built, London hangars and meets stringent ISO certifications.
