SyberJet Aircraft is pleased to announce that Jason Castriota Design (JCD) has delivered the first artistic renderings of an exciting new interior for its proprietary SJ30 light business jet. Mr. Castriota, who has worked with a myriad of iconic brands including Ferrari and Maserati, over the course of his career, is known for his emphasis on performance and advanced ergonomics in all of his designs. Jason was retained by SyberJet to ensure that the SJ30's new interior will be as distinctive as its performance.
Recognized as the world's fastest and longest range, seven-seat light business jet, the SJ30 is being upgraded with Honeywell-powered SyberVision™ avionics and a fresh interior designed by Jason Castriota. These upgrades will yield significant weight reduction, bring next generation technology and efficiency to the cockpit, and modernize the interior environment.
Mr. Castriota has worked with some of the world's most exotic and high performance automobile brands. Hailed by automotive historian, Winston Goodfellow, as "one of the industry's hottest automotive designers," he's been involved in many prestigious projects during his career, such as the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano, the Maserati Gran Turismo, and the One-of-a-Kind Pininfarina Rolls-Royce Hyperion.
With regard to the SyberJet project Mr. Castriota said, "My team and I were extremely excited and honored to work with SyberJet on further evolving their amazing aircraft. Needless to say we have a shared passion for speed, performance and quality and our collaborative efforts reflect that."
Chuck Taylor, President of SyberJet, shared Mr. Castriota's enthusiasm: "Jason's design work on the SJ30's interior is an important part of SyberJet's overall appeal. We are excited to have Jason on board, and are eager to show the world the bold, new SJ30!"
Mr. Castriota also explained some of the philosophy behind the SJ30's new design direction: "Given that many of the SJ30's owners are pilots themselves, we snatched the opportunity to create a supercar-like environment in the cockpit, with superior ergonomics and a very technical look and feel. For passengers in the main cabin we have shifted the emphasis to being modern, functionally dynamic, and comfortable by creating an environment which is open and light to ensure a relaxed and peaceful journey."
