Germany-based MRO, FAI Technik GmbH, part of the FAI Aviation Group, has completed one of the most extensive refurbishment projects for a pre-owned Bombardier Global Express.
Project Pearl took approximately 10,000 manhours to complete and includes 15/30/60, 120 and 240-month inspections.
The Global features an all-new cabin with the latest cabin management and entertainment systems. This includes Collins Aerospace‘s Venue enabling passengers to watch HD movies and listen to enhanced digital audio throughout the cabin and Honeywell´s Ka-Band broadband technology.
The aircraft’s custom interior was designed by FAI’s design partner, award-winning German design specialist, Tim Callies, well known for his work on Boeing BBJ’s, Airbus ACJ’s and Global Express business jets.
The luxury interior features VIP seating for 12 passengers which includes two tone grey leather seating and two three-seat sofas covered in anthracite Armani fabric. The interior also features stylish heated grey-white marble stone flooring in the galley and VIP toilet areas which matches the granite countertops of the galley and bathroom. Galley appliances include a wine cooler, coffee maker and oven.
The interior is complemented by a customised exterior paint scheme, also designed by Callies, took six weeks to complete and features black and white stripes laid out in a unique pattern.
“FAI is proud to present this unique Global Express to the pre-owned Charter-Market. Ultimately, we believe it would appeal to a buyer looking for a striking pre-owned aircraft. I applaud Tim Callies for the first-class design work and would like to extend my thanks to the FAI Technik team for realising this challenging project,” said Siegfried Axtmann, FAI´s Group Chairman.
