Duncan Aviation Refurbishes Outdated Falcon 2000EX
Duncan Aviation showcases a Falcon 2000EX that received a complete paint and interior overhaul, 2C inspection, Gogo AVANCE L5, Airshow 500, and new AC outlets with USB charging. The aircraft arrived at Duncan Aviation’s full-service facility in Battle Creek, MI, with an outdated beige interior and gold accents. The customer wanted to make the aircraft look new, modern and updated, so Duncan Aviation lead designer, Heather Pridemore, worked closely with the owner to bring his vision to life.
“The owner really likes the heavy contrast of greys and blacks,” says Pridemore. “We gave the interior a very textural and masculine look that modernized the aircraft.”
The aircraft received all new materials, including leather, plating, veneer and countertops. In order to achieve the more textured look that the owner desired, Duncan Aviation’s Interior teams created custom-quilted chairs highlighted with black accent piping. The lower sidewalls were covered in heavy-grained, hand-tipped leather with French accent stitching, and the carpet replaced with a large geometric pattern in grey and black that brings the interior together.
The Falcon owner also wanted the interior and exterior to complement each other by using the same overall colors and style.
“The owner loved the paint job we did on his Citation a few years ago and wanted to use the same color scheme,” says Pridemore. “The exterior has a dark grey belly with sleek lines making the aircraft look long and fast. We added a little red to the paint for more visual interest.”
“This was one of my favorite jobs I’ve worked on,” Pridemore continues. “I was absolutely floored when I was able to see everything in the aircraft come together.”
Duncan Aviation Completions and Modifications sales rep, Tiffany Buschini, says that the owner and management company were so thrilled with how the entire project was ran and with the level of quality and attention to detail of the interior and exterior that the management company has elected to bring several additional aircraft to Duncan Aviation for similar work.
“It feels great to know we’re a part of a team that takes such pride in their work,” says Buschini.
