GENEVA, Switzerland – May 12, 2009 – StandardAero is pleased to announce an agreement with TAG Aircraft Interiors Ltd (TAG-AI) to offer “Limited Edition” interior completions at its Springfield, IL, facility. Through this agreement StandardAero is able to offer up to full interior completions in exclusive designs penned by the House of Versace.
Versace Interior Design Atelier is responsible for content, design and style, while TAG-AI manages the logistical and technical aspects of the interior design contracts, and acts as the marketing and sales agent. Versace’s move into VIP aircraft interiors is a logical extension of the house’s expertise in home interior and fashion design.
“I am excited about this alliance” said Bijan Khezri, TAG-AI’s managing director. “StandardAero offers premier completion and paint capabilities for top-of-line business jets, such as the Bombardier Challenger and Global lines, Gulfstreams, Falcons, Embraer Legacy, and are recognized for their superior craftsmanship and quality.”
Harvey Ticlo, Senior VP for Business Aviation at StandardAero, believes that the new designs have a lot of potential. “We have been in the high-end business jet interiors business for a long time, and have come to appreciate the constant search for quality, refinement and exclusivity that owners of those aircraft look for. We constantly look for ways to solidify our leadership there by pursuing higher levels of perfection.”
A sample of the exclusive Versace design can be experienced at TAG-AI (booth 651) at Palexpo, Geneva, during the 2009 EBACE convention. Owners and their representatives are encouraged to contact TAG-AI or StandardAero (booth 370) to discuss their completion project.
