J&C completes cabin refurb of Ukraine's presidential ACJ319
Being an ACJ and a head of state aircraft, the complex and ambitious project required particular attention to detail, flexibility in solving challenges and, of course, full discretion.

J&C Aero, a Lithuania-based end-to-end aircraft cabin interior solutions provider, has recently completed a major refurbishment project under which it provided cabin modification and renewal services for the Ukraine state air company. The company operates a state-owned Airbus ACJ319 used for the air transportation of the president of Ukraine.

During the project, J&C Aero engineers developed design changes required for the integration of a new in-flight entertainment (IFE) system and upgrade of the aircraft's cabin management system (CMS). Prior to the installation, the company also successfully secured EASA certification of the executive cabin modifications under J&C Aero's new STC #10082618. The team also mediated the supply of a Ka-band satcom navigation system and supported its subsequent installation on the aircraft.

In addition, J&C Aero completed a full refurbishment of the aircraft's interiors, including fabric covering, executive seating and divans, interior veneer, carpets and laminates, as well as other cabin parts. The renewed cabin elements were produced in-house by J&C Aero while installation and maintenance works were delivered by Magnetic MRO at Tallinn airport in Estonia under J&C Aero-developed maintenance instructions.

“Without a doubt, it was one of our most complex and ambitious projects. Being not only an Airbus Corporate Jet but also an aircraft used for the transportation of a head of state, this Airbus ACJ319 required particular attention to details, flexibility in solving challenges and, of course, full discretion. It was a privilege for us to contribute to the renewal of the aircraft. We are thankful to the Ukraine state air company for the trust and to our partners at Magnetic MRO for their support in this project. Our utmost gratitude also goes to our team for their hard work and many sleepless nights,” says CEO Laurynas Skukauskas.
