PATS Aircraft Systems has re? delivered a 737?900ER Boeing Business Jet (BBJ3) interior completion project, the fourteenth such turn?key interior completion performed by PATS at its facility in Georgetown, Delaware.
PATS delivered the aircraft to Middle East?based clients.The customer, who has multiple VIP airliner aircraft under ownership and has dealt with many other completion centers in the industry, noted, ”PATS exhibited an industry?leading level of capability, professionalism and integrity during the entire BBJ3 interior completion. The PATS team was highly communicative, honest and transparent in every aspect of the work and openly welcomed our team to participate in a team?oriented project environment.”
The interior creates a dynamic space in which to relax or work using the handsomely appointed systems including a highly customized in?flight entertainment system with active Video?On?Demand to 70 aircraft locations and a state of the art in?flight mobile phone utilization system, says PATS. In addition to the design and systems, the interior weight and noise suppression both met customer expectations. The project was certified by the PATS’ on?site Organizational Designation Authorization (ODA) who issued the FAA Supplemental Type Certificate (STC).
“By focusing our exceptionally talented work force on a limited number of exclusive clients at any given time, we ensure our performance meets or exceeds our commitments,” says John Martin, PATS’ president and CEO. “Our customers’ trust and satisfaction is a byproduct of the skill and dedication of our entire team and the pride they take in delivering the highest quality product to each valued client.”

The AFS is installed in the forward and aft cargo compartments in various tank configurations.
