VVIP aircrafts are the largest and most expensive corporate jets, equipped with absolute luxury. While the airframe is the same as in commercial aircraft, there are almost no limits for customizing the interior. VVIP jets are built for optimal top passenger comfort and experience, such as live television, quiet cabins and humidification systems to help alleviate jetlag, as well as having a full security system. GDC Technics, a global leader in aircraft engineering, modification and completion services for airlines, OEMs, government organizations and heads of state, recently completed two VVIP cabins for the Boeing 787 Dreamliner.
For any new project, a company needs traceability, transparency and full control of the designing and engineering domains throughout the product lifecycle, while also managing certifications. To meet these needs, GDC Technics relies on Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform and its Cleared to Operate industry solution. .
While matching each customer’s specific requirements and modifications, the aircraft also has to comply with the latest regulations from global certification authorities. With the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, engineering data and certification data can be linked together in the same workspace. This model-based and data driven approach gives all designers and engineers a common set of tools, which improves collaboration and encourages an innovative mindset. And having all information in one place shortens time-to-market, simplifies project management and ensures digital continuity while saving costs.
‘Engineering the Impossible’ is GDC Technics’ vision, and this reflects its pursuit of limitless possibilities and driving the highest level innovation in aircraft modifications. Read the case study to get detailed insights and watch the video below.
