• New avionics display and Synthetic Vision System (SVS) upgrades enhance pilot awareness
• Bombardier designed cabin refinements improve comfort and enhance aesthetics
Bombardier Business Aircraft launched 12 brand new product enhancements, from situational awareness and regulatory compliance to cabin upgrades to elevate the performance, comfort and luxurious aesthetics of its in-service aircraft. These products are available for installation by the qualified experts who know the aircraft best and can reduce aircraft downtime by combining the installation with a major inspection at any of Bombardier’s nine service centres worldwide.
“Bombardier is proud to offer its in-service fleet the latest in advanced technology and interior design enhancements,” said Jean-Christophe Gallagher, Vice President and General Manager, Customer Experience, Bombardier Business Aircraft. “As the OEM, we are continually on the leading-edge of emerging trends and our highly trained and skilled technicians are best positioned to provide added value because we know our aircraft best.”
For heightened pilot awareness, Bombardier is offering enhanced LCD cockpit displays for Learjet 40/45 aircraft and a Synthetic Vision System (SVS) as a retrofit option on Global aircraft.
Challenger 300 series and Challenger 604 aircraft operators can also benefit from Bombardier’s expert knowledge when installing the Future Area Navigation System (FANS) over Iridium hardware, which facilitates pilot communication with Air Traffic Controllers (ATC) and allows aircraft to fly over certain routes in North America, the Atlantic and Europe. With the approaching 2020 deadline to install FANS 1/A technology, operators can have the technology installed at one of Bombardier’s nine service centres during their next maintenance event.
“With time also running out for thousands of operators to equip their aircraft with ADS-B Out V2 by January 1, 2020, customers can align the installation with an upcoming maintenance to save time and money, while ensuring the highest quality of OEM parts and an exceptional customer experience,” added Gallagher.
Bombardier’s new interior cabin enhancements redefine luxury and comfort. Custom-crafted stone flooring to enrich the aesthetics, as well as meticulously crafted conference tables on both Challenger and Global aircraft, featuring a single pillar pedestal for ergonomically comfortable and spacious seating, are now available for retrofit installation.
Bombardier Tucson Service Centre’s new purposefully designed interior atelier is equipped to provide these interior enhancements with its meticulous state-of-the-art cabinet workshop and fully climate-controlled work environment.
