Only specific materials can be used even for private aircraft interiors. For example all materials are required to have an 8110-3 which means they need to pass FAA burn requirements. 2-D and 3-D modeling software allows the customer to preview colors textures patterns and materials. The final stage of this software is a photorealistic 3-D rendering showing the customer a true colour visualization of how the new interior environment will look and feel. This rendering along with the colour board of materials is a complete package for jet interior design.
The are a number of indicators one considers as denoting success. Items like a large home expensive cars jewelry exotic vacations and private jets. Of that short list only one stands alone as being reserved for those who have reached the pinnacle of success. After all in an age of McMansions a big home may be just an over extension of one`s credit expensive vehicles could be a lease jewelry may be a quality fake and the world is now open to everyone for travel. The one indicator out of reach unless one has the honest ability to attain it is private jet travel.
The safety and security of outright ownership is another benefit that transcends cost considerations. As the owner of the aircraft you know the crew and the configuration of the aircraft. In fact some corporate executive insurance policies stipulate travel and security conditions and provisions for key executives that practically dictate travel by private jet.
As we took our seats 2D and 2F in a full Business-Class cabin National Post and Globe and Mail newspapers were handed out along with a Spanish language Chilean paper. A bottle of water was waiting in each seat for each passenger however there was no pre-departure drink service for the Business-Class passengers (orange juice champagne wine etc) as is standard on other airlines. I decided the check the magazine rack for some interesting in-flight reading material only to find Canadian Living Chatellaine Canada Food and Wine and Canadian Fishing; titles that are of little interest to most business travelers. There were no business and news magazines such as The Economist Business Week or Time which one would naturally expect to be provided. Our flight was under the command of Captain Green and he did not provide the passengers with a welcome aboard announcement telling us about flying time planned routing enroute weather or weather at destination.
