East Alton, IL, January 12, 2017- West Star Aviation is pleased to announce they have successfully completed an extensive refurbishment of a Bombardier Global Express, including installation of the Rockwell Collins VENUE system.
This complete refurbishment included a reconfigured floor plan change, upgraded LED cabin lighting, belted divan for takeoff and landing, soft goods, wood accents, and installation of the Rockwell Collins VENUE cabin management system.
