Collins Aerospace’s latest VenueTMcabin management system and high definition entertainment system were selected by FAI Technik for its latest Bombardier BD700 Global Express cabin refurbishment project, named “Project Pearl.” 

Project Pearl represents one of the most extensive refurbishment projects for the type. The five month project will include 60, 120 and 240-month inspections and a full cabin refurbishment featuring thenew Collins Aerospace Venue.  Passengers can enjoy watching HD movies and listen to enhanced digital audio throughout the cabin. Venue can broadcast a range of other high-resolution content.The project also includes the installation of Honeywell´s Ka-Band broadband technology, delivering ultra-high-speed satellite connectivity. 

The architect of the cabin project is German designer Tim Callies, who is well known for his work on Airbus ACJ, Boeing BBJ and Bombardier Global Express interiors.  The luxury interior will feature VIP seating for 12 passengers and include stylish two tone leather seating and two three-seat sofas covered in Armani fabric. Additional modifications and upgrades include new cabinetry, cobalt black metal plating, granite table tops, the latest galley appliances to include a wine cooler, coffee maker and oven and stylish heated stone floors in the galley and toilet area. This will be followed by a newly designed exterior paint scheme. 

Priced at USD $ 10.95 m, this unique turnkey Global Express should be very attractive to potential clients flying on business or leisure trips.
