A full refurbishment  of a pre-owned Bombardier Challenger 604 (MSN 5412) was completed by FAI Technik. The aircraft which was handed over to its new Germany-based owner earlier in the month, will be operated under NCC regulations by FAI Technik’s parent company, FAI rent-a-jet GmbH. This latest project represents FAI’s first extensive refurbishment on the Challenger series.

The one-million-euro project took approximately 2500 manhours to complete and features VIP seating for 12 passengers which includes high gloss carbon fibre veneer surfaces, soft furnishings in tasteful shades of grey, polished smoked nickel with glossy clear coat metal platings throughout and stylish white marble countertops and stone floors in the galley and restroom. The luxury interior is complemented by Gogo´s Aviator 300 with intermediate gain antenna, Wi-Fi internet and Collins´ Airshow 500 installation. Exterior designer paint was undertaken by Satys in Norwich, UK and features a VIP finish in silver grey metallic.

“FAI Technik has successfully completed another highly demanding, first-class interior refurbishment project, following the completion of our stand out Global Express ‘Project Pearl’ in 2020. This latest project further reinforces FAI Technik´s competency in turnkey refurbishments at flat rate pricing,” said, Siegfried Axtmann, FAI´s Group Chairman.

The Challenger 604 refurbishment follows FAI Technik’s recent prototype installation of Collins Ku-Band Highspeed Internet System on a Challenger 850. Meanwhile FAI Technik has completed eight installations of Honeywell’s Ka-Band on Bombardier BD700 aircraft. The MRO division has also successfully installed Collins ultra-high-speed Ku-Band inflight connectivity system on Global Express and Challenger 850 aircraft and will soon commence the prototype installation on a Challenger 605.
