Jet interior Concept
During the summer of 2014, I interned with Textron Aviation ( Cessna Aircraft) at their Wichita Kansas facility. I was part of a team of interns that included aerospace, electrical, mechanical engineers, as well as interior and industrial designers in Wichita, Kansas. We collaborated to develop a blue-sky concept and full scale mock-up of a medium class business jet cabin interior.
We're all different, so we thought there should be a place for everyone.
We began with a considerable amount of market research by interviewing Industry experts, pilots, and customers to understand our clients. We created three user profiles to keep a story in mind while designing.
We went on to designate a floor plan that was influenced by our insights. By using a full scale representation interior, we were able to test our layouts based on human factors, FAA regulations, and most importantly the needs of a intended users.
Our Solution and Philosophy - Modularity
Our goal is to design a flying experience that feels like a home in the sky.
Our inspiration comes from contemporary residences, hotels, and furniture.
We hope to create an aircraft that is not just a means of travel, but a lifestyle.
We propose that the aircraft should function as more of a residential space than reference transportation design.
