E) How long do you need the set?

Our “Rolling” airline cabin sets serve the short term (one or two production days), local rentals that require a quick turn-around with minimal to no build-out.

“Rolling” airline sets are fully practical cabin interiors on their own rolling platforms (10″ high deck). Each section is one side of the cabin (with 1/2 an aisle) 10′ long. Floor, wall and overhead bins are one unit. Multiple wall units and flooring are available for you to select the width and length of set that will work best for your scene.

Each 10′ length of cabin allows for 3.5 rows of Coach/economy class seats or 2.5 rows of Business/First class seats. The equipment can be set up as a “One side” cabin or one (1) aisle “Narrow body” (up to 6 coach seats across) cabin. The set comes with a complement of Seats. Set appropriate Set Dressing included with rental.

Production value is added with Service Areas that can be placed in the front, middle or end of any width “Rolling” set. Complete galley units (units differ in equipment offered), practical or plug doors, lavatory units and Flight attendant station (except in S2 service area) are available. Additional Cockpit, Service Areas, Doors and Walls are optional.
