VIP Completions has acquired and fully refurbished a 22-year-old Dassault Falcon 2000 that it is now using as a flying showroom demonstration aircraft. The Fort Lauderdale, Florida-based aircraft completions and refurbishment specialist has outfitted more than 600 aircraft and decided to undertake the acquisition and revamp its own business jet to show customers proof of its work.
“Owning our own business jet is the perfect way to demonstrate what we do,” said VIP Completions president Ben Shirazi. “The Falcon 2000 is an excellent aircraft and an ideal platform for our team to display their creativity and talent. It will be based at our Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport facility and will be shown at NBAA regional forums across the country.” The next such forum will be held in Miami-Opa locka, Florida, on February 8.
The company’s twinjet features 10 custom-designed seats using Garrett leathers, oak woodwork in a matte brown finish, carpeting and cabin details using Loro Piana fabrics, and a custom bar area adjacent to the galley and open to the cabin. The aircraft’s cabin management and in-flight entertainment systems include a custom Alto audio system calibrated for the cabin using Alto’s MySound optimization tool, as well as cabin management system control by way of Creston touch panels at each seat and in the galley.
