MD-81

Pentastar Aviation has completed a full retrofit of a McDonnell Douglas MD-81 featuring a complete Cabin Management System (CMS) from Flight Display Systems.

The MD-81 cabin has two distinct customer seating areas which allow the VIP passenger to either relax in business-class seats with newly upgraded leather upholstery, or work at shared table spaces that allow for business meetings during flight.

Each passenger seat can also get direct access to the Flight Display Moving Map which provides real-time flight information so they’ll always know the current flight status.

Each seat is also equipped with a 2-Button OLED Controller to allow for individual audio and video selections.
