Design concept "Explorer"

Go anywhere at any time

Explorer feeling - up in the air

For the first time we present our new pioneering cabin design for long-haul aircraft. Our Explorer design optimally fulfills your desire to go anywhere at any time to discover the world.

Fly to any location in the world and start your adventures right away once you arrive at the airport. Your personal "flying hotel" will provide you with all comforts and amenities that you can expect from a five star hotel on the ground. In developing the cabin floor plan, we placed our emphasis on a wide range of possible use cases. Interior elements are deliberately kept multi-functional. In addition to classic room elements such as bedrooms, bathrooms, offices and conference areas, we show you a variety of new ideas.

Do your business but also enjoy life  and explore the world or party with family and friends. Therefore, you have your own dedicated areas i.e . for mission briefings, dining, fitness or even a dance floor and SPA area. Furthermore, you can take all your special equipment with you. No matter if it is a car, offroad vehicle, wingsuite, wine cellar, exploration laboratory or even an emergency medical room - or anything else you might dream off.

“We analyzed the typical elements of the Explorer boat class in order to transfer the design idea behind it from the water to the air, and thus into a new cabin design.”

Jan Grube, Sales Director in Lufthansa Technik's VIP & Special Mission Aircraft Services

Ceiling projection

Unique features for your cabin

By integrating the unique ceiling projection system of Diehl Aerospace, we have created a breathtaking interior that exploits the technology`s full potential for a VIP cabin. For the first time, you can bring a variety of atmospheres into your private jet - depending on your mood and occasion. The system covers huge areas of the ceiling and sidewalls where it brings an endless variety of virtual worlds to life.

Diehl Aerospace is a Joint Venture of Diehl Aviation and the French company Thales.

“We created a unique interior to exploit the full potential of the projection system for private jets. The overall look of a VIP cabin can be changed by a fingertip.”

Michael Bork, Aircraft Interior Architect in VIP & Special Mission Aircraft Service

Spectacular open-air seating area

At a height of around four meters above the tarmac, you have a unique view of the airport and its surroundings as a base camp for further discoveries and excursions. The main deck cargo hatch, which is available ex works i.e. on the Airbus A330 freighter or as a retrofit solution on passenger versions, opens up the interior to its surroundings, into which you can then immerse directly via a platform that can be extended by several meters.

Customized for your needs

For maximum comfort - these ideas are designed for 8 - 12 passengers and explicitly focus on meeting the requirements of the best Explorer experience you can have. We also have other floorplan options available and can certainly adapt it to any other need i.e. for a higher number of passengers to use this aircraft as a feeder for explorer-cruise ships.

We chose the Airbus Corporate Jet ACJ330 as the platform. As a classic widebody aircraft, it offers sufficient space for a large number of new cabin ideas. However, this layout can also be easily transferred into any other widebody aircraft like an Airbus A350, the Boeing 787 or 777...
