Book a slot now to minimize the wait
Talco Aviation pushes the envelope with this large-cabin interior, accentuated with soft yellow lighting, wood veneer and ergonomic seats.
Thursday, June 27, 2013 - 11:00am

As the industry recovers from the long recession, sales of used and new aircraft are accelerating. Largely as a result, more and more independent completion and refurbishment shops are building a backlog of orders.

Another reason: the first Global Express XRS business jets from Bombardier are coming in for required major inspections, and a lot of owners are choosing to do cabin refurbishment at the same time. Meanwhile, owners of larger bizliners—Airbus ACJs and Boeing Business Jets—are jostling for refurbishment slots timed to coincide with required 10-year maintenance and inspection checks. At centers approved by Airbus Corporate Jets and Boeing Business Jets to do interior outfitting of their new airplanes, backlogs began growing last year.

A word to the wise: peruse this directory now and, to minimize delays, schedule your job as soon as possible.

“"I've got a list of corporations that have gotten out of their airplanes [because of criticism from politicians]. It is the stupidest thing I've ever seen. When you look at the time and cost savings; it does not make sense not to fly [privately]. You can't let public perception interfere with your business decision to fly. It either is a good business decision or it isn't."”

-business aviation entrepreneur Nick Popovich
