Canada's Field Aviation Company Inc. has been selected to produce and install custom designed aircraft interiors for two new Bombardier Dash 8 Q400 aircraft under a contract with Avitrade Belgium, on behalf of its ultimate customer.  The VIP interior modifications will be the first of their kind installed on Dash 8 Q400 aircraft. 

Field's extensive experience in VIP interior modifications will allow it to individually tailor each aircraft to the specific needs of Avitrade Belgium. 

Albert Bloem, CEO of Avitrade Belgium, said, "By choosing Field to complete the interior of these aircraft, we know we have made the right decision.  In the past, they have continuously displayed the expertise, knowledge and dedication that have made them world leaders in interior completions.  I am looking forward to completing this new project with them."

The first aircraft will begin its modifications at Field's completion center at Toronto's Lester B. Pearson airport in January 2010.  The 62-seat economy configuration will be converted to a 28-seat, mixed-class configuration.  This will comprise a four-passenger VIP cabin complete with custom side ledges and foldout tables, an eight-passenger first-class cabin, and a 16-passenger economy section.
Field Aviation vice president, business development, David Jensen, said, "We're excited to be a part of this project; our planning is well underway and we are set to begin modifications in January, with final delivery by the end of 2010. Interior mods and completions - VIP and paramilitary - are a key market focus for us, and this contract reflects and underscores our capabilities and commitment in a highly competitive segment of the industry."

Modification of the second aircraft will commence in April 2010, with its 62-economy-seat plan to be converted to eight first-class seats and 32 economy.

Avitrade's client has also specified a number of high-end interior finishes for each aircraft.  These include specialized in-flight entertainment systems, satellite telephones, custom galleys, unique floor coverings, wood laminates, and re-designed lavatories.

Field Aviation is known internationally for its innovative, uniquely engineered products and services, and the modification and conversion of aircraft for special mission roles.  These capabilities have made Field a recognized leader in VIP interior completions, repeatedly proving its ability to exceed client expectations.
