Supporting Greenpoint Technologies…

SWS

We pride ourselves on being able to work on some of the most innovative, ground-breaking products in Aircraft Interiors today and for this reason believe we really are the right partner to support OEMS, Operators and Airframe Manufacturers with their new/ upgraded cabin interior developments.

SWS supported the multi-organisational collaboration (Boeing, Greenpoint Technologies and the customer's designated integrator) to obtain an EASA STC for the Aeroloft® on the B747-8i.


The Product...

Aeroloft® was designed, developed and manufactured by Greenpoint Technologies, a Zodiac Aerospace company – Aeroloft® is a unique design for a multiple passenger sleeping facility installed into the overhead area of the VIP B747-8.

The Challenge...

Aeroloft

Greenpoint Technologies’ Aeroloft® product, being a completely new concept, presented many certification challenges necessitating multi-organisation collaboration between Greenpoint, Boeing, SWS, the integrator and EASA.

There are other crew rest sleeping accommodations in the overhead area of the aircraft but not for aircraft passengers. This presented several certification firsts for the Aeroloft® project.

The necessary Airworthiness approvals involved EASA Special Conditions applicable to the aircraft and specifically to the Aeroloft®.

The Result...

  • First EASA STC on the first Boeing delivered B747-8i
  • First EASA STC approved involving the recently issued EASA and USA bi-lateral agreement
  • First Aeroloft® integrated into a VIP configured B747-8i
  • Additional Aeroloft installations have now been approved. The latest in February 2016
