Mecaer Aviation Group (MAG) has been certified to install its luxury interior – branded MAGnificent – on Bell 429 helicopters by Russia’s Interstate Aviation Committee.
MAGnificent interiors offer VIP clients a selection of four-, five- or six-seat layouts with options for up to two centre consoles, MAG’s proprietary in-flight entertainment enhanced lounge (I-FEEL) and passenger controlled electrochromic windows.
MAG’s I-FEEL technology provides passengers with moving jet maps and audio/video entertainment, along with an internal Wi-Fi interface for personal electronic devices. Customers can also choose to install MAG’s proprietary “SILENS” noise cancelling system, which allows passengers to conduct conversations without headsets.
“The STC validation in Russia is a significant milestone for MAG,” commented Armando Sassoli, co-general manager of MAG. “It was critical we receive this validation as we have many clients in line for our interior in Russia.”
MAG received a supplemental type certificate for its Bell 429 interior options in 2015.
