CITADEL COMPLETIONS

ects are simple accessory changes, while others strip
the entire plane down to its raw state to complete an
entirely new interior. "During the initial client meeting, we develop a concept with the customer and
build from there," notes Dryer. "After this meeting,
we begin our research and design analysis work,
which is a combination of both creative and logistic
work. The design team pulls ideas from websites,
literature, art, nature and magazines and creates a
mood board to help spark inspiration for both the
customer and designer."
The customer's design team is the primary drivers of materials chosen. However, Citadel says its
designers are well-versed in VVIP interiors, and are
accustomed to working either directly with customers or with their design teams. The company
is finalizing its design center, which will be fully
capable of providing floor plans, renderings and
full-scale design packages to present to customers, as well as integrate with its engineering team
upon execution. "This connectivity between design,
engineering and production are the critical links to
our engineering-centered approach to VVIP completions," Bonita points out.
"We have a proprietary passenger arrangement
tool that we use with our customers to help determine the best use of their cabin space," explains
West. "We work with airlines and their various
design teams to find the best passenger flow, and
then use some virtual reality tools to help them
with their fabric selections, textures, colors, etc."

Collins Aerospace has its own Advanced Design
Group of industrial designers who are experts at
helping airlines make updates that best meet their
branding goals. "Our engineers then balance their
desired results with what can be achieved safely
so updates can be certified," says West. "Airlines
need a partner that can work with their teams to
bring their aspirations to reality."
Each customer is unique in what they want out
of their interior. For example, some customers
want an interior that is very practical and easy
to maintain. They may want some less expensive
material options such as laminate woodwork and
machine-tufted carpets. Other customers may be
