INAIRVATION Announces its First Order for a Bombardier Global 5000 Retrofit

INAIRVATION and Flying Colours Corp. announce launch customer for a Unique Retrofit – a pre-engineered, integrated retrofit cabin interior

Geneva, EBACE – May 23, 2016
INAIRVATION, a provider of smart cabin upgrades and Flying Colours, a Peterborough/Ontario headquartered company that provides heavy maintenance, completions, modifications, and retrofits for the business jet market, confirm that they started work on their first joint cabin upgrade project, the retrofit of a Bombardier Global 5000 interior.

The retrofit will include a complete nice® HD CMS/IFE system and newly developed ergonomic RH/LH side-ledges integrated with an advanced CMS User Interface (UI).
INAIRVATION, a joint venture between Lufthansa Technik and F/LIST, will deliver these components as a pre-developed and pre-produced kit, for installation along with other interior finishes and upgrades provided by Flying Colours at their Peterborough facility during the tight timeframe of a heavy maintenance check. According to Sean Gillespie, Executive Vice President of Flying Colours, “the client appreciated the strength of the group of partners, the cost efficiency of the product offering, and the reduced down time due to the pre-engineered approach”.

“We started INAIRVATION to introduce an integrated approach on designing, engineering, building and installing business jet cabin interiors”, states Philip von Schroeter, co-CEO for INAIRVATION. “Initially targeting only the OEM market, we soon realized that applying our integrated line-fit methods to retrofit projects helps reduce complexity and risk, thus helping INAIRVATION and its partners to successfully enter this growing market.”
INAIRVATION is currently offering its retrofit products for Bombardier’s Global and Challenger families. More platforms may be added subject to market demand.

Representatives of INAIRVATION will be at the Lufthansa Technik AG booth L089 throughout the EBACE show for discussions and demonstrations. They will also be able to connect you with the preferred MRO partners for realization of your Unique Retrofit during your next scheduled inspection.
