Podcast: Business Aircraft Refurbishing Trends and Tips

Sept. 11, 2023

Aircraft refurbishments continue to be in high demand, with new paint, cabin refreshes and connectivity solutions just a few of the popular upgrades available for business aircraft. Many times, it’s ideal to combine this work with scheduled maintenance or overhauls, so planning ahead and scheduling refurbishment during maintenance downtime is as important as ever. “There are certain maintenance events with every different make and model [aircraft] that triggers a modification conversation,” notes Duncan Aviation’s Adam Beach, “and that would be for both paint and interior.”

In this episode of NBAA’s “Flight Plan,” host Rob Finfrock speaks with:

  • Adam Beach, paint and interiors sales representative for Duncan Aviation
  • Stefan Buschle, director of maintenance for Jet Aviation
  • Ron Jennings, senior vice president of business development for C&L Aviation Group
