AERIA’s predecessor, the Dee Howard Company was founded in 1964 and quickly established
By the mid-1980s, DHC was performing VIP conversions and completions for large commercial
aircraft including the B727, B747 and A310. A Boeing B747-300 for the king of Saudi Arabia
was the first VIP configured 747 to be completed and set the standard for all VIP completions
After a series of sales, in 2002 VT San Antonio Aerospace purchased the former DHC. In 2012,
VT San Antonio Aerospace re-established and re-branded the VIP completion operation as
AERIA Luxury Interiors.
