Bombardier Q400 goes VIP

The Toronto operation of Field Aviation has delivered to Avitrade Belgium a pair of Bombardier Q400 aircraft with custom designed interiors, the first such installations in the type.

The aircraft, with 28 and 40 seats respectively, were uniquely-configured with a combination of single VIP style seats and standard economy seat pairs.  One aircraft features a separate cabin with four individual fully flatbed VIP seats in club configuration.

Selected by Avitrade on behalf of their end use customer, Field Aviation was engaged to design, engineer and integrate unique mixed class interiors for each aircraft.

Finished to the highest standards, the VIP and First Class seats include individual touch screen LCD monitors for IFE and moving map displays.  Installed throughout is in-seat power for lap top charging, side ledges with fold-out tables and cabin class dividers.  Sky Connect real-time satellite tracking system installation, cordless satellite phone handsets, custom carpets and specialty leather finishes are also featured.  Specialized modifications and amenities are incorporated into the aircraft rest rooms and galleys.

Developed from the original 1980s de Havilland Canada Dash 8, the Q400 is the current production model.  Over 1,000 Dash 8 variants have been built. www.fieldav.com
