Bombardier CRJ200 – VIP Conversion
THE BOMBARDIER CRJ200 HAS A GREAT DEAL OF POTENTIAL AS A BUSINESS AIRCRAFT. WITH BOTH A WIDE AND TALL CABIN FOR PASSENGER COMFORT.
After a detailed discussion with our client about their operational needs and their visual design concepts, New United Goderich designed a conversion to take a typical Bombardier CRJ200 regional airliner of 50 passengers and transform it into a luxurious custom VIP business jet for 15 passengers.
When the selected aircraft arrived at the New United Goderich Facility, the quoted six month timeline for this conversion officially began.
- Arrival Inspection was performed and all discrepancies documented.
- The exterior paint was stripped to reveal the bare metal skin.
- The complete airline interior including side panels, galley and lavatory was removed.
- A complete heavy maintenance inspection and repair was carried out.
- Other client driven tasks were added to the work scope.
- PATS long range fuel tanks were installed.
- Interior department fabricated and assembled the complete custom interior including monuments, seats and side panels.
