Flying Colours to Install First Inairvation Retro-Fit Cabin

Completions specialist Flying Colours (Booth W063) has signed a deal with the launch customer for Inairvation’s pre-engineered, retrofit cabin for Bombardier Global aircraft. The Canadian company was named as a North American partner last fall by Inairvation (Booth L089), a joint venture between Lufthansa Technik and F/List, and it is already working with the European partners on the design engineering for the cabin. The order was confirmed late last month.

Final designs are expected to be ready by the end of next month and the aircraft is due to enter the company’s workshop in the fourth quarter of this year with a targeted completion in the first quarter of 2017. Flying Colours also provides a variety of maintenance, repair and overhaul services.

The undisclosed customer chose the Inairvation baseline package to blend with the interior that will feature new, exotic leather-clad Global 6000 seats, an ergonomic side-rail, a rainbow spectrum cabin lighting system, stone granite floors in the lavatories and galley areas and carbon fiber veneer overlays on the cabinetry.

The retrofit, which will be certified via an STC obtained by Flying Colours, will incorporate Lufthansa Technik’s Nice HD cabin management and inflight entertainment system, with functionality integrated into new pre-engineered ergonomic side ledges manufactured by F/List. The exterior of the aircraft will also receive attention, in the form of a custom all-metallic paint scheme.
