FAI Technik, the maintenance division of Germany's FAI Aviation Group, has installed its first Collins Aerospace ultra-high speed Ku-band inflight connectivity system on a Bombardier Challenger 850 aircraft on behalf of a corporate client. FAI Technik, which specialises in base maintenance and modifications for Bombardier aircraft, worked together with EASA Part 21 organisation S4A from Spain to obtain an EASA STC for this modification.

“We are proud to have been chosen for this challenging project, which will provide fast global internet access for the benefit of our client,” says FAI chairman Siegfried Axtmann. “Following this prototype installation, FAI plans to install this solution on many other aircraft to meet the specific needs of our business aviation clients. We are pleased to report that we have been contracted for a second installation of the system on another Challenger 850.”

In 2018, FAI Technik was appointed an authorised Collins dealer enabling it to sell, install and maintain Collins' avionics and cabin electronics equipment from its headquarters at Albrecht Dürer International Airport in Nuremberg.
