Outfitting and Customising
“Green” refers to a newly built aircraft without a cabin interior or exterior livery. It is a blank canvas; however, each model still has its own limitations and challenges. Therefore, aircraft must undergo a meticulous process before it is complete and ready to fly. This can only be done by experts and the Camber team is just the group of experts to get it done.
Camber’s Perfectionist Inspection
Camber’s specialists visit the aircraft during production to ensure it complies with its specification. We inspect the aircraft, thoroughly review the manufacturer’s production documentation, observe ground testing, and participate in the acceptance flight tests. Quality or performance shortfalls are documented and communicated to the manufacturer for correction prior to Camber completing green aircraft technical acceptance. Once all issues are resolved we assist the owner to guarantee a smooth acceptance and delivery process.
Completion Centre Collaboration
Our team works with the completion centre to ensure the approved design is translated into engineering drawings that correctly reflect the intended design, while also fulfilling the defined quality, functionality, and maintainability standards of the cabin systems. To be certain the centre is fully prepared for aircraft arrival, we evaluate engineering drawings, participate in design reviews, and confirm compliance with the contracted specification.
With years of experience maintaining large, complex jets, we place a special emphasis on designing for reliability. If a component should fail, it should be able to be quickly removed, replaced, and tested to minimise a potential delay. This takes a deep understanding of aircraft engineering and maintenance, but also an appreciation of functionality and cabin aesthetics.
Inspection and Last Modifications
Following delivery, the green aircraft is ferried to the completion centre. Camber’s experts are on-site throughout the completion of performing critical inspections. We work to confirm that cabin parts and monuments meet specifications and finish quality, ensure that inevitable issues are efficiently resolved, and do anything else necessary to protect owner interests. We work with the centre to correctly sequence critical modifications, which are released by the aircraft, engine, and component manufacturers during the completion process.
Proprietary Processes and Software
Camber has invested its knowledge in creating unique proprietary processes and custom software aimed at dramatically increasing efficiency and controlling costs. This has allowed our team more time to focus on the outfitting and less on the administration. We call this process “Streamline”, it is used to identify and track issues efficiently. Streamline ensures a timely closure and simplifies the test, certification and delivery processes. Our Team uses modified iPad Pros to photograph, describe, assign, and track an issue until it has been handled to Camber’s satisfaction.
The result? Higher quality and faster defect closure.
