Embraer Services & Support has unveiled its new Interior Workshop showroom at Sorocaba Service Center, Brazil.
Embraer’s Interior Workshop has two strategic partners in Latin America: Embraer Design Operations (EDO), responsible for the internal and external design of the company’s executive jets, and F/LIST Brasil, which has expertise in high-end cabin interior services, from on-site repairs and upholstery services to cabin interior upgrades and complete retrofits.
Among the projects already completed by the Interior Workshop is the complete revitalisation of a 10-year-old Legacy 600, with the replacement of leather armchairs, removal and application of varnish on wood surfaces, replacement of carpet and vinyl flooring installation in the Galley. In another project, an eight-year-old Phenom 100 received new ultra-leather panel coating, varnished cabin bulkheads and doors, formica repairs and seat leather and base restoration.
To streamline the aircraft customisation process, Embraer has launched an iPad app for customers to evaluate and validate various aircraft configurations with immediate visualisation of selected interior and exterior design options. The application shows the materials and colours available, allowing the customer to select every detail, simulate from multiple paint schemes, choosing colour and pattern composition, saving options for later comparison and refinement of final selection.
“We prioritise customer experience and productivity. It was once an interactive, multi-meeting process where the client and our design team relied on material samples or photos generated from previous projects. The app has revolutionised this experience by opening up the possibilities for the customer to explore the limits of creativity and their preferences for colours and materials from the comfort of their home, giving them immediate insight into potential interior and exterior design schemes,” says Frank Chavez, director of Interior Design at Embraer Executive Aviation.
