FAI Technik has completed its first installation of a Collins Ku-band inflight connectivity system on a Bombardier Challenger 850. The company specialises in Bombardier aircraft, offering base maintenance and modification services. It teamed up with EASA Part 21 organisation S4A of Spain to obtain an EASA STC for this project.
“FAI is proud to have been chosen for this challenging project which will provide fast global internet access for the benefit of our client,” said Siegfried Axtmann, chairman at FAI. “Following this prototype installation, FAI plans to install this solution on many other aircraft to meet the specific needs of our business aviation clients. We are pleased to report that we have been contracted for a second installation of the system on another Challenger 850.”
FAI Technik was appointed an authorised Collins dealer in 2018, enabling it to sell, install and maintain Collins’ avionics and cabin electronics equipment from its headquarters at Albrecht Dürer International Airport in Nuremberg, Germany.
