Cutting Edge: GDC Technics

Strategic investments, expanding capabilities, and a range of technology breakthroughs cement GDC Technics’ industry leadership in modifying next-generation airplanes, and will continue to drive success into 2016 and beyond as the company expands its focus on Engineering the Impossible.

The company will be discussing and showcasing a range of its technology advances during the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) convention this week in Las Vegas. These innovations include:

  • 20% Lighter Cabins. New fabrication techniques and advanced-technology materials resulting in cabins that are 20 percent lighter than industry norms, an enormous advantage for GDC customers.
  • Connectivity. The latest in connectivity technology for communication and entertainment integrated onto carbon-fiber and conventional aircraft platforms.
  • 3D Printing. Lightweight, precision-crafted cabin interior and IFE components are advancing this technology from rapid prototyping to superior finished goods.
  • 3D Engineering. Combining the latest 3D engineering software applications with GDC’s Synchronicity operations management tool is drastically reducing turn times for faster returns to service.
  • Virtual Reality Design Interface Software. A full-scale, 3D interactive virtual reality design interface, on display in the GDC Technics exhibit, that is used to provide an immersive experience for customers, designers and even installation crews, at every stage of the luxury aircraft modification. The new software bridges the gap between aircraft owners, designers, engineers and production process.

Mohammad Alzeer, GDC General Partner, said “From our cutting edge 3D technology to our new advances in interior weight reduction, GDC’s demonstrated its commitment to innovation and customer care and service. These innovations and new technologies are as bold and forward-thinking as the next-generation for which they are designed to be incorporated in.”
