Mecaer Aviation Group (MAG), the Italian aircraft interior specialist of Borgomanero, Italy, will display a full-scale mock-up of its new VIP interior for the AgustaWestland AW169 helicopter at this year’s NBAA Annual Meeting and Convention.

The VIP interior, which is the creation of the company’s design studio, is available for viewing at MAG’s booth # 4538.

MAG was previously selected by Eurocopter as the VIP interior system supplier for its EC145, Mercedes-Benz style. The craft is a new high-end VIP version of the popular twin-engine turbine helicopter. Originally announced at EBACE 2010, the first helicopter equipped with the new VIP interiors, conceived by Mercedes-Benz and completed by MAG, was unveiled last year at EBACE in Geneva.

In Europe, MAG operates several interior installation facilities that are adjacent to, or co-located, within an OEM’s factory. Under the MAG business model, its facilities have complete responsibility for the entire interior process from design and manufacture to final installation and certification on the OEM’s assembly line. Current locations include: Vergiate, Italy; Yeovil, UK; and Moscow, Russia.

In the USA, MAG operates under a similar concept at its Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, location and has recently opened a new facility in Hagerstown, Maryland, to service the interiors and MRO needs of east coast rotary- and fixed-wing operators.

MAG’s Co-General Manager, Armando Sassoli, said, “Our track record is proven by our selection as the interiors supplier for several major OEMs, such as AgustaWestland and Eurocopter. We expect this side of our business will continue to grow as discussions are currently underway with other OEMs and we’ll be making further announcements in the near future.”
