Shunned at the start of the Great Recession as a symbol of excess, private jets are staging a comeback helped by space-saving appliances such as compact kitchens
San Francisco, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/02/2012 -- Interior designers hired by the ultra-rich to map out their aircraft now have numerous options for outfitting private aircraft including Jacuzzis and movie theaters. Compact kitchens are one of several amenities available for these “flying yachts.”
These space-saving appliances, manufactured by companies such as North Carolina-based Compact Kitchens, are a full-service cooking center consisting of a refrigerator-freezer, sink, storage area and electric cooktop range. They are ideal for cottages, RVs, ice houses, apartments, boats or anywhere saving space is important.
Refurbishing a mid sized-airplane can cost anywhere from $400,000 to $1 million, including labor and materials, since certified engineers are required to do the work. Similar work on Bombardier’s $50 million Global 6000 can cost as much as $15 million.
Aircraft also are one of the most critical areas for saving space given the physical limitations dictated by safety concerns and the need to keep weight down to reduce fuel consumption. Therefore, manufacturers of typical household products have no incentive to design products for this niche market as Compact Kitchens has done.
The company’s products include all the benefits and features of full-sized models. They feature the highest utility, durability and quality. They also provide a huge advantage to remodelers and builders for both design and application. And they cost far less than the separate components. Each unit is under full warranty and customers are guaranteed a working unit or else a working unit will be supplied at the manufacturer’s expense.
Private jet usage in Europe has begun approaching the levels reached prior to the Great Recession, which began in November 2007.
Some of the latest innovations include on-board aquariums, touchscreen panels that allow passengers to adjust the lighting and theater systems, and lightweight, unbreakable glass to reduce the aircraft’s weight.
Compact-Kitchen.com (http://www.compact-kitchen.com/) is located in Waxhaw, N.C. The company manufactures mini kitchens that combine three appliances into a pre-assembled unit, saving time, space and money. The company offers low prices and rapid shipment.
