April 2017 – Comlux delivers the first EASA-certified cabin for a Sukhoi Business Jet
Comlux is pleased to announce that Comlux Completion, it’s Completion and Services center based in Indianapolis IN, has delivered the first custom VIP Cabin EASA-certified SBJ.
The VIP aircraft, owned by Kazakhmys PLC Corporation in Kazakhstan, features 19 certified seats for Taxi-Take-off & Landing in a contemporary corporate interior designed and engineered by Comlux. It includes a VIP area at the front with a club-4 seating across from a side-facing sofa and an executive section with 15 First class seats in a 2 x1, 3-abreast configuration.
After a 12 month downtime for the completion, including cabin certification as per the stringent safety and quality regulations of EASA, the aircraft has been delivered to Comlux KZ, the regional VIP operator of Fly Comlux in central Asia, which will take care of the operations of the aircraft in service. The SBJ is also the first aircraft of the type available on the charter market.
Eduard Ogay, CEO of Kazakhmys PLC subsidiary in Kazakhstan says “The SBJ has been delivered on quality and on time and as per the highest standard of the industry. The addition of the SBJ to our corporate fleet successfully operated by Comlux KZ allows a large number of our company executives and employees to travel all together efficiently and in full comfort. It is the right business tool for our company.”
“This SBJ is the first of its type to be outfitted in corporate configuration and certified by EASA” says Scott Meyer, CEO Comlux Completion. “This made it especially challenging given the completion operations in the US, for an aircraft without FAA TC, showcasing once again how Comlux can adapt and find solutions in any environment to best serve our customers.” He adds:” The Comlux team has performed an outstanding job on the aircraft interior, including flight testing and certification under full EASA oversight. Thanks to our Cabin Innovation and Research Center, we have demonstrated our ability to complete new aircraft type interiors beyond ACJs and BBJs. We proudly delivered the aircraft to Comlux KZ and we wish them a successful corporate and charter operation.”
