A very high quality studio set based on our real Challenger jet exterior.

All the interior cabinet work matches the real thing so offers great continuity with any exteriors shot. The set interior is actually 20% oversized compared to the real thing, giving you a 6’3″ stand up cabin. Each cabin wall is divided into 7 sections, each of them floating for camera. The ceiling also floats in sections for lighting. Theres a galley at the front and a loo at the back, again with floating wall sections. We have various seating options we can use to dress the interior and the pictures below show it in its various past styles. If you need to see a cockpit then our Boeing airliner cockpit actually offers up to it really well, it doesn’t look like it should work but it really does!

It’s often built as a standing set at our location, otherwise its packed neatly into a 20ft shipping container which we can easily deliver to your studio or location.

Twin Squirrel in the workshop. Has to match a flying example so we have a complete new interior going in and a new instrument panel. Structural additions will mean it can dangle from a crane and gimbal mount. 3 weeks ‘til curtain up! #as355 #ukfilm #filmproduction https://t.co/ftaDwkBSRx
