AIRCRAFT INTERIOR DESIGN
Meticulously designing, developing, fitting and certifying an aircraft interior is one of the most exciting challenges our team faces here at RAS Interiors. Our London based team has over 20 years’ joint experience in delivering stunning aircraft interiors from concept to completion, which rightfully exceed expectations.
For the team, each private aircraft interior design starts with the client. The team work tirelessly to carefully define the style, purpose and requirements of the aircraft interior. This ensures the creation of a fit for purpose interior, perfectly matched to an individual’s tastes and considerations.
The results of this approach are simple: beautifully crafted aircraft interiors, which perform.
Interior Design Process
When it comes to aircraft interior design, a one size fits all approach does not work, that’s why prior to starting any design project, our team carries out a full needs analysis. The analysis required covers a variety of topics including:
• Functionality Requirements
• Communication & Entertainment Requirements
• Desired Materials
• Desired Design & Features
• Re-sale Values
The answers to the above remain at the forefront of the minds of our design team, who excel in matching exclusive materials and interiors to a diverse set of clients, which have included: sports teams, royalty, businesses and individuals. Expertise at all stages of the process ensures that every design produced is fully compliant with aviation regulations.
Taking into consideration each unique requirement, dreams and ideas are turned into a reality with the use of 3D and 2D modelling. At this concept stage the interior will represent an interior which mirrors personal tastes, in a layout optimised for both functionality and comfort.
Further utilising techniques, such as 2D modelling and technical drawings, are used to draft a list of requirements. This specification is a key phase in turning an aircraft interior dream into a reality. The specification contains all technical and electrical drawings, as well as materials and products which are to be used – which may include lighting, appliances and features.
Over the last 20 years, we have worked hard to build up strong relationships with the world’s leading aircraft interior suppliers. Furthermore, our extensive facilities include air side workshop hangars which allows us to manufacture many components in house. Our in house capabilities include: fabrication, soft furnishings and composite manufacturing, as well as the ability to create all levels of interior paint finishes, VVIP wood veneers and lacquers.
This unique approach allows us to create perfectly designed, manufactured aircraft components of an unrivalled durability, which simply aren’t available as off the shelf products.
Instead of handing over your aircraft to a third party company for completion, we achieve our excellent results through seeing a project through from design to completion. Our expert craftsmen fit your aircraft out with utmost care and attention, ensuring that the same level of craftsmanship and service is delivered at all stages. All work is carried out in our custom built London hangars and meets stringent CAA certifications.

At RAS Interiors our interior planning and execution structure encompasses these key steps in a process that enables our team to understand our clients’ goals and meet these in the most understandable and smoothest way possible.
Our process is as follows:
• Sitting down with our design, planning and sales team to get a perfect understanding of your vision and budget.
• With this vision in mind we set to develop an in-depth design drawing including 3D renderings all put together with our design department. Engineering/certifying the options incorporated, identifying and integrating the most advanced technology solutions when applicable.
• Establishing a detailed task list and schedule and adhering to them.
• Refurbishing the interior, this process could be a fast or long one depending on the aircraft and scope of the project. The time a project could take also weighs heavily on whether the aircraft is available to come to our facilities at Biggin Hill Airport or not. During this process, regular updates are given to the client to ensure all current work is being handled correctly.
• Returning the aircraft to service and supplying all needed EASA documentation to go along with it.
• Supporting you and the aircraft after its return.
These steps are aimed to deliver an on time and on budget style and quality that meet your requirements. Throughout, working in tandem with our suppliers and drawing on the diverse resources of RAS Interiors, our goal is to provide our customers the utmost in flexibility regarding the process on their aircraft.
