Honeywell Aerospace has appointed FAI Technik as an authorised channel partner. The agreement means FAI can supply and service all Honeywell’s avionics products for business aviation – including connectivity solutions, cockpit and cabin upgrades. FAI Technik is the maintenance division of FAI Aviation Group, and is based in Nuremberg, Germany.
As a channel partner, FAI Technik says it will be able to offer detailed Honeywell system upgrades, installation solutions, EASA and STC certification as well as Honeywell parts at the most competitive prices. Additionally, as part of the global Honeywell network, FAI will collaborate with the manufacturer to develop marketing strategies, identify business opportunities and bring value to customers.
The company also says the appointment will facilitate faster installation times for customers, owing to improved supply chains. FAI Technik is already in discussions with a number of clients about Honeywell’s products.
“We are honoured to be appointed as an authorised Honeywell channel partner,” said Siegfried Axtmann, founder and chairman of the FAI Aviation Group. “Their innovative solutions are highly regarded across the globe and as such, this collaboration is a significant agreement for the company. We are increasingly being asked by our customers for options for CMS and IFE upgrades on mid- to large-size business aircraft so the new arrangement will enable FAI Technik to considerably broaden its offering, which in turn will benefit our customers.”
FAI Technik’s CMS/IFEC installations can include interface units to enable cabin functions to be operated from a smartphone. Customers can access a broad range of movies or music on multiple, wide-screen HD monitors, complemented by a surround-sound system. FAI Technik also installs Ka-band solutions to enable high-speed inflight connectivity.
