Posted 27 March 2019 · Add Comment

FAI Technik, part of the FAI Aviation Group, has selected Collins Aerospace’s latest Venue cabin management system and high definition entertainment system for its latest Bombardier BD700 Global Express cabin refurbishment project, named ‘Project Pearl.’

 

Project Pearl represents one of the most extensive refurbishment projects for the type. The five-month project will include 60, 120 and 240-month inspections and a full cabin refurbishment featuring the new Collins Aerospace Venue.  Passengers can enjoy watching HD movies and listen to enhanced digital audio throughout the cabin. Venue can broadcast a range of other high-resolution content. The project also includes the installation of Honeywell´s Ka-Band broadband technology, delivering ultra-high-speed satellite connectivity.

The architect of the cabin project is German designer Tim Callies, who is well known for his work on Airbus ACJ, Boeing BBJ and Bombardier Global Express interiors.  The luxury interior will feature VIP seating for 12 passengers and include stylish two-tone leather seating and two three-seat sofas covered in Armani fabric. Additional modifications and upgrades include new cabinetry, cobalt black metal plating, granite table tops, the latest galley appliances to include a wine cooler, coffee maker and oven and stylish heated stone floors in the galley and toilet area. This will be followed by a newly designed exterior paint scheme.

Siegfried Axtmann, founder and chairman of FAI Aviation Group comments: “We are very much looking forward to presenting this unique aircraft to the pre-owned Global Express market in April.  FAI Technik continues to stretch the boundaries to extend its remit in MRO and this latest project demonstrates our outstanding capabilities in refurbishing Global Express aircraft.”
