FSG to install 'RealGlass' on ACJ330s
Upon obtaining EASA STC certification for this innovative solution, this project by Fokker will incorporate certified heat-release real glass in commercially operated aircraft with more than 20 passengers.

Fokker Services Group (FSG) has selected AviationGlass as its partner of choice to replace standard inner polycarbonate window lenses with 'RealGlass' technology on the Airbus ACJ330 aircraft, a project that is positioning FSG as a real front-runner in the European wide-body completion market. Upon obtaining EASA STC certification for this innovative solution, this project will incorporate certified heat-release real glass in commercially operated aircraft with more than 20 passengers.

This development will enable FSG to replace standard lenses on the Airbus ACJ330 aircraft with 'RealGlass' lenses. Compared to traditional polycarbonate windows, this cutting-edge solution caters to the most stringent demands of VIP clients, offering lighter, brighter and more scratch-resistant windows that enhance the cabin's ambiance. In parallel, this technology complies with V60, heat release and smoke density requirements, paving the way for obtaining an EASA STC for this completion.

The project will take place in FSG's facilities in Woensdrecht, The Netherlands, where the company has recently inaugurated a new wide-body hangar as part of a larger expansion plan throughout which it aims to secure an undisputed position within the completion and conversion services market in the region.

Roald Vos, director of aircraft completion and conversion services, emphasises the significance of this agreement: “It's a cornerstone of crucial innovations that have the potential for wide-scale application, not only within the VIP sector but also within the commercial aviation industry. We take pride in our fruitful, long-term relationship with AviationGlass, and the combination of our collective knowledge and expertise fills us with excitement as we strive towards achieving a significant breakthrough.”

“It's never been easier for business aviation customers to make the upgrade to glass and say goodbye to scratched plastic interior window panes. Combining forces with FSG means we can already offer certified glass lenses with existing window shades, saving customers time and money. Another area of focus will be the co-development of new combined offerings,” adds Jaap Wiersema, managing director of AviationGlass.
