FAI rent-a-jet of Germany, which specialises in air ambulance and special-mission operations, has added its 12th Learjet 60, which will be refurbished by its MRO division, FAI Technik of Nuremberg.
The refurbishment will result in a new interior featuring VIP leather seating for 7-8 passengers in shades of grey, plus high-speed internet connectivity. This will be followed by a new exterior paint scheme. The aircraft will be FAI Technik’s third Learjet 60 refurbishment project. It is anticipated that the aircraft will be available for sale from March 2020.
In other news, FAI Aviation Group Holding has decided to discontinue the AOC of one of its charter businesses, Fly Alpha. FAI will transfer its Premier 1A and King Air 350 aircraft to FAI’s AOC. “Economically, it makes no sense to operate two German AOCs in parallel, therefore we have taken the decision to give up the second AOC and enrol Fly Alpha’s aircraft into FAI’s fleet, which now totals 25 business jets and one turboprop,” said Siegfried Axtmann, chairman at FAI.
