The project will begin immediately with interior design and development of the technical specifications. The new ACJ320 aircraft is expected to arrive at AAC’s Dallas facility in August, 2015.
“We are pleased to have signed this project and looking forward to delivering another high-quality completion for this prominent and repeat customer,” said James Colleary, president of AAC. “2014 has been a banner year for AAC and we are actively biding and loading our shop and completion schedules for 2015 and beyond.”
