RAS and JETMS collaborate on Dassault 7X upgrade
In collaboration with its parent company Jet Mainrnance Solutions (JETMS), interior and completions specialist RAS Group has recently completed an extensive renovation projet on a Dassault 7X.
RAS was tasked with the aircraft’s complete interior overhaul which included cabinetry, seating and carpeting.
“It was a process everyone at RAS was involved in," said RAS Business Development Manager, Roger Paton. "From the smallest inputs coming from our employees to a close collaboration with the owner’s interior designer, we strived to combine modern techniques and unique individuality into one piece of finely finished art.
"From the new look cabin cabinetry, crafted in high gloss dark grained wood, to the cheerful combination of white aviation-grade leather, trimmed with blue edge piping and set off by the vibrant blue carpet, the interior received a new lease of life in the form of carefully selected materials and forward-thinking design,” he added.
Roger Patron worked closely with the customer’s interior designer to narrow down the choice of materials and finishes expressed by the owner to enhance the cabin’s interior. Careful examination and detailed testing of all materials were required to ensure their longevity and resilience. Specialised tests were performed on all materials to understand how they might react to long-term exposure to sunlight, moisture, and pressurisation.
After several rounds of testing, RAS Interiors' in-house design department, together with the company’s manufacturing division, crafted uniquely stylish products that could withstand unfavourable conditions, while at the same time presenting a pleasant visual appeal and the practicality of structural integrity.
