Following a 240-month inspection, German Special Mission and VIP-Charter Operator FAI rent-a-jet AG has welcomed its seventh Bombardier Global Express, to the company’s 26-strong fleet.
The aircraft will undergo a complete interior refurbishment at the company’s MRO division, FAI Technik in Nuremberg, designed by FAI’s design partner, award-winning German design specialist, Tim Callies.
The Global Express will be FAI’s third “Signature Edition” aircraft where a buyer can personalise the cabin design and select upgrades for an all-in turnkey price.
Siegfried Axtmann, FAI Aviation Group chairman, commented: “We are delighted to be working with the renowned Tim Callies and his team on our Global Express enabling the new owner to personalise their interior as part of our ‘Signature Edition’. FAI Technik has performed numerous 120- and 180-month inspections on BD700 series aircraft, notably this aircraft will be the first Global Express to undergo its second 10-year inspection at our MRO. With its state-of-the-art carbon fibre cabin, it will represent extraordinary value for money on the Global Express pre-owned market.”
Further planned upgrades include the installation of a new cabin management system, Ka-band ultra-high speed Wi-Fi internet and new exterior paint. It is anticipated that the aircraft will be introduced to the market for sale or lease by the end of March 2019.
