Inairvation has selected three partners to install its pre-engineered integrated cabin retrofit solutions on Bombardier Global Express, Global 5000 and Global 6000 aircraft. Flying Colours Corp, Lufthansa Bombardier Aviation Services (LBAS), and Ruag Aviation will offer the interior packages to the worldwide market.
Inairvation – a joint venture between Lufthansa Technik and F/List – was created to design, develop and manufacture integrated interior business jet cabin solutions. Now with its new external partners, Inairvation can offer complete installation packages to the business jet retrofit market. It is anticipated that Flying Colours Corp, LBAS and Ruag Aviation will first offer the retrofit packages on all Bombardier Global aircraft types and then transition to other platforms in accordance with market demand.
The baseline retrofit package offers the nice HD CMS/IFE system – which includes a user interface, AVOD, a wireless interface for personal device integration (iOS and Android), and a Hollywood-studio content service – all integrated into new sideledges and modification kits that are pre-engineered by F/List. Many optional packages are available.
“Our pre-engineered solutions will enable Flying Colours Corp, LBAS and Ruag Aviation to offer major interior retrofits that minimize the high non-recurring engineering costs and downtimes for each installation,” said Werner Kartner, co-CEO of Inairvation. “The work can be completed comfortably within a regular 8C check, and for sellers and buyers of pre-owned aircraft, our retrofit package may prove to be a smart move that adds value to their aircraft.”
“During the selection process we looked for several attributes from numerous potential partners,” said Philip von Schroeter, co-CEO of Inairvation. “We choose the three companies that we believe have consistently demonstrated their capability to perform at the highest level. We were most impressed with the quality of their workmanship; their commitment to innovation; and their ability to install interior packages and manage the certification process.”
