Mecaer Aviation Group, Inc. (MAG) announced it has validated additional STCs with the FAA for the AW139 in VIP configuration. Previously the STCs were validated with EASA.
MAG responded to the growing demand for additional options in the United States for VIP configured AW139s containing a higher level of technology while reducing noise levels in the cabin. MAG has customized nearly 200 VIP AW139s around the world, however predominately in Europe. The new STCs with the FAA will assist in a more even distribution of interiors by MAG.
The two additional STCs provide combinations for more than eight different layouts and configurations. VIP seating arrangements range from four seats with multiple cabinets and consoles to eight-seat configurations. In addition, the layouts are interchangeable with other layouts, allowing executive flight departments to quickly change from a four-seat configuration to six, for example.
MAG’s proprietary technologies including SILENS (Speech Interference Level Enhanced Noise System) and I-FEEL (In-Flight Entertainment Enhanced Lounge) are options in all of the new STCs. MAG’s SILENS technology provides passengers with the quietest interiors in the world while maintaining payload and range. I-FEEL provides passengers with customizable infotainment, resulting in an affective flying board room environment or a relaxing private flight experience.
“We are listening to our US clients,” said Armando Sassoli, Co-General Manager of Mecaer Aviation Group. “The market in the US and specifically the operators near our Philadelphia facility wanted a quieter and lighter weight option – we have responded,” Sassoli continued.
