Chris and I returned to the Orlando area, more specifically the Deland Municipal Airport. Our visit to private jet painting company East Coast Aircraft was very informative.

We want to thank the owner, Marta Nobrega, for the tour and spending some time with us.

East Coast Aircraft has been operating for over 15 years. They are known for meticulous work and fast turnaround. Beyond painting, they also do complete or partial interior refurbishments.

What we learned is that partial refurbs of either the interior or exterior is an important part of the business.

Sometimes seat covers, partial carpet replacement or some detailed accent work to the cabin is all that is needed. This honest approach is refreshing as it’s not about selling all you can to a client but ways to save them money.

Some other areas in the interior that can be upgraded include:

  • Counter Tops
  • Headliners
  • Seatbelts
  • Window Panels
  • Cabinetry

On the exterior side, sometimes there might just be a small area of corrosion that needs repair.

In this case there is no need for a full repainting. Or adding stripes to an aircraft can completely change the appearance. Here again, they can provide lots of expert suggestions.

Although the focus in the early days was smaller airplanes, that has now shifted to almost exclusively private jets and larger turbo prop aircraft. The facility can handle aircraft up to the size of a Gulfstream 550.

One of the coolest things we saw during our visit was their conference room. The table was a private jet wing, and the chairs were actual seats. Talk about living and breathing private jets.

So, our takeaway from this was if you’re looking to upgrade your private jet inside or out, there are lots of ways to save money doing it. And these folks can definitely help with that.

As always, we’d love to hear from you. Contact Us or email us at and maybe we’ll come visit you too. And remember, we are not compensated for any of our stories. We do this because it’s fun and we love aviation.

Oh, almost forgot, Chris shot a quick video of a Cessna Citation X they were prepping for painting.
