Italian aircraft interior specialist Mecaer Aviation Group (Booth No. 4538) is displaying a full-scale mock-up of its new VIP interior for the AgustaWestland AW169 here. Mecaer was previously selected by Eurocopter as the VIP interior system supplier for its EC145.
“Our track record is proven by our selection of the interiors supplier for several major OEMs,” said Armando Sassoli, co-general manager of Mecaer. “We expect this side of our business will continue to grow as discussions are currently under way with other OEMs and we’ll be making further announcements in the near future.” Mecaer takes complete responsibility for the interior, from design and manufacture to final installation and certification on the OEM’s assembly line.
In addition to the AW169 interior, the company will be displaying the landing gear it manufactures for the Eclipse 550 and rotorcraft including the AW109 and the Bell 525 Relentless. “We’re looking forward to exhibiting at NBAA 2012,” said Sassoli, “so that we can demonstrate exactly what makes [Mecaer’s] products the superior choice for customers in the helicopter, business aviation and general aviation markets.”
