Bombardier has unveiled a preview of the nice Touch cabin management system, which will make its worldwide debut at the European Business Aviation Conference and Exhibition 2018.
The Bombardier-designed platform developed in collaboration with Lufthansa Technik and found exclusively on the Global 7000 aircraft, allows passengers to connect with the cabin through the Bombardier Touch dial, featuring business aviation’s first application of an OLED display.
Always within reach of the passenger’s seat, it discreetly rises from the side ledge with the touch of a finger to provide rapid control of entertainment and cabin settings.
The Global 7000 aircraft also introduces Suite controllers throughout the aircraft’s full-sized living spaces allowing for intuitive and home-like control of the cabin environment.
“The Global 7000 jet’s nice Touch CMS sets a new standard in the industry by further elevating the cabin experience,” said Brad Nolen, vice president, marketing and product strategy, Bombardier Business Aircraft. “Bombardier is renowned in the industry for its impeccable design and leading-edge technology – and the Global 7000 aircraft’s nice Touch CMS perfectly combines those two elements to bring ultimate comfort and effortless control to the customer’s fingertips.”
The Touch dial and Suite controllers are complemented by the nice Touch application, available on iOS and Android devices.
“With a 10-gigabit fibre-optic architecture and dual wireless access points for redundancy, the nice Touch CMS provides an easy and reliable way to control all cabin functions so that passengers can easily transition between productivity and relaxation,” said Andrew Muirhead, vice president, product division original equipment innovation, Lufthansa Technik.
