INAIRVATION has selected Flying Colours Corp., Lufthansa Bombardier Aviation Services, and RUAG Aviation as partners for installing its integrated retrofit interior.

Las Vegas, NV, NBAA – November 17, 2015 INAIRVATION announces that it has selected three partners to install its pre-engineered integrated cabin retrofit solutions on Bombardier Global Express/5000/6000 aircraft. Flying Colours Corp., Lufthansa Bombardier Aviation Services (LBAS), and RUAG Aviation will offer the interior packages to the worldwide market.

INAIRVATION GmbH – a joint venture between Lufthansa Technik and F/LIST – was created to design, develop, and manufacture integrated interior business jet cabin solutions. Now with its new external partners, INAIRVATION can offer complete installation packages to the business jet retrofit market. Flying Colours Corp., LBAS, and RUAG Aviation will first offer the retro-fit packages on all Bombardier Global aircraft types and then transition to other platforms in accordance with market demand.

The baseline retrofit package offers the nice® HD CMS/IFE system that includes an advanced User Interface (UI), Audio and Video on Demand, a wireless interface for personal device integration (iOS and Android), and a Hollywood studio content service with leading block-buster movies and TV shows, all functionally integrated into new ergonomic side-ledges and modification kits, pre-engineered by F/LIST. Many optional packages are available that – when taken together – will create a complete new interior. INAIRVATION Co-CEO Werner Kartner states, “Our pre-engineered solutions will enable Flying Colours Corp., LBAS, and RUAG Aviation to offer major interior retrofits that minimize the high non-recurring engineering costs and down times for each


The work can be comfortably completed within a regular 8C check, and for sellers and buyers of pre-owned aircraft our retrofit package may prove to be a smart move that adds value to their aircraft.”

In announcing the selection of its partners, INAIRVATION Co-CEO Philip von Schroeter adds: “During the selection process we looked for several attributes from numerous potential partners. We choose the three companies that we believe have consistently demonstrated their capability to perform at the highest level. We were most impressed with the quality of their workmanship; their commitment to innovation; and their ability to install interior packages and manage the certification process.”

Representatives of INAIRVATION will be at the Lufthansa Technik AG booth C10416 throughout the NBAA show. Flying Colours Corp., LBAS, and RUAG Aviation will also be available for discussions and demonstrations.
