Many, including the said owner, own multiple aircraft and are looking for a team of trusted experts to deliver a turnkey project of the highest caliber. The VIP Completions team takes care of everything from finding the aircraft, inspecting it and negotiating the transaction, to importing the aircraft and coordinating any required maintenance, as well as designing complete, interior renovation and exterior painting.
Beyond its size and the potential it offers, the 767 stands out from other wide-body VIP platforms with its impressive range, altitude and speed capabilities, capable of flying easily from Miami for London and well in Europe with almost 12 hours of flight. Upon delivery, the nearly 2,000 square foot jet will look more like a luxury home than a business jet. This is the fifth project that VIP Completions has undertaken for Mr. Ruiz. Previously, he has refurbished a Citation X, a Gulfstream GIVSP and a Gulfstream G550 – aircraft that the customer continues to own and operate. The fifth project, the refurbishment of a Sikorsky S-92A helicopter, is underway.
The 767 project, which lasted six months, is a showcase of interior design vision and personalization. The exceptional degree of personalization reflects the character and passions of the client. The overall ambience is bright and modern. Colors include light gray, off-white, taupe, and sand. The project used ‘hydrodipping’, an innovative process to paint/veneer the woodwork and cabinetry. Cabin accessories and soft goods are sourced from high-end luxury brands including Loro Piana and leather loft. All passenger touchpoints – high-speed internet, Alto Aviation premium HD audio system and full-spectrum LED lighting – are state-of-the-art, controlled by a custom iPad-compatible cabin management system.

Only the highest quality paints and other raw materials manufactured by world-class companies were used in the project. The VIP Completions team also identified and upgraded systems to ensure the aircraft is ready for ever-changing regulatory requirements. VIP managed all aspects of next-gen compliance for the aircraft.
