Flying Colours Corp. has confirmed the first customer for INAIRVATION’s pre-engineered retro-fit cabin solution for Bombardier Global aircraft types.
Named a North American partner by the Austrian-based joint venture between Lufthansa Technik and F/LIST during NBAA 2015, Flying Colours is already working with the European partners on the design engineering for the cabin. The undisclosed client confirmed the order in late April.
Work on the project has already begun, with aircraft induction at Flying Colours scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2016, and re-delivery anticipated to be in the first quarter of 2017.
tThe launch customer has selected the baseline INAIRVATION package to blend with the new interior. The refit will incorporate the nice HD cabin management (CMS) and in-flight entertainment systems (IFE) from Lufthansa Technik. The system’s functionality will be integrated into new ergonomic side-ledges which are pre-engineered and manufactured by F/LIST. These modules will be delivered and installed during the retrofit process, which will take place at the Flying Colours’ Peterborough, Ontario headquarters.t
