CFM-SustainabilityFACC announced recently it has developed and produced portions of the newly launched Bombardier Challenger 3500. The deal represents a major large-scale project for the Austrian aerospace group, which is now also successfully participating in the third Challenger generation with its tailor-made solutions, FACC said. FACC will produce the cabinets, sidewalls, headliners, bulkheads and passenger service units for this new business jet.

“The new Challenger 3500 aircraft stands for the ultimate cabin experience, to which we will be making a significant contribution,” said Robert Machtlinger, CEO of FACC. “As a long-standing development and manufacturing partner, we are very proud to be able to stand by Bombardier as a strong partner for the Challenger 3500 – that will feature impressive performance, consistent reliability, an exceptional smooth ride, and an elevated cabin experience. Building on our many years of know-how and our innovative strength with regard to complex, high-quality interior systems, our teams of FACC experts have joined forces to create a completely new business travel experience.”

FACC is responsible for the development, production and certification of portions of the cabin, from the interior lining and PSU to the wardrobe, galley, various cabinets, tables, baggage compartments, partitions, cabling and lavatory. Each cabin is custom-made, the components are painted, veneered or covered with leather on request and delivered fully assembled to the Bombardier end line in Montreal (Canada).

Bombardier has developed its newest member of the Challenger family with a focus on sustainability. The Challenger 3500 will be the first business jet in the super mid-size segment to feature an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD), providing a record of the aircraft’s ecological footprint throughout its life cycle. When it comes to outfitting the cabin, aircraft operators can opt for high-quality and sustainable materials. This is where the quality workmanship of FACC comes into play: the company has refined its processes and materials for the Challenger 3500 with a focus on sustainability and is increasingly using natural materials such as real wood veneers and leather to meet the highest customer requirements. For the leathering and manufacture of veneered and high-gloss lacquered premium furniture, FACC has invested in its own in-house manufacturing facility for Business Jets Monuments to meet customer requests.
