Nuremberg, Germany-based MRO, FAI Technik GmbH, part of the FAI Aviation Group and subsidiary of German special mission operator, FAI rent-a-jet has completed another outstanding Bombardier Global Express refit project, following the successful completion of its award-winning Project Pearl in 2020. The project also included 30/60/120/240-month inspections and new paint. Following 20,000 manhours of work, it is anticipated that this latest Global Express (D-AFAU) will be available for charter and lease from June 2022.

The multi-million-euro project which received its EASA STC certification in April, marks the first and only installation of an original Global XRS cabin into a classic Global Express. The custom interior refurbishment, designed by FAI’s inhouse team features an all-new cabin with VIP seating for 12 passengers in tasteful cream leather, complemented by a stylish black and cream striped designer carpet and striking dark chocolate high gloss piano style wood surfaces with rose gold metal plating throughout. Elegant beige stone floors adorn the galley as well as the VIP lavatory area which features JetsTM vacuum toilets. The luxury interior is complemented by Collins Aerospace Cabin Electronics System (CES) V7. Exterior paint was also undertaken by FAI Technik.

“This latest highly demanding, first-class refit project further underlines FAI Technik’s performance and expertise in the refurbishment and modification of Bombardier aircraft,” said Michael Axtmann, Commercial Director, FAI Technik.

FAI Technik scooped the Innovation in Engineering Category at the 2021 Middle East Aviation Awards for its work on its Project Pearl Global Express refit.

FAI runs a 14,000 m² carbon-neutral fixed-base operation at its Nuremberg, Germany headquarters, employing a staff of 250 people, including 70 mechanics and engineers at its in-house MRO FAI Technik GmbH.  FAI´s Group revenues in 2021 were close to € 100 m with a fleet utilization of ca. 14,000 hours of airtime. FAI is official supplier of the McLaren Formula 1 Team.
