FACC supplies Challenger 3500 interior components

Austrian aerospace systems supplier FACC has been selected to supply parts of the Bombardier Challenger 3500 cabin. Bombardier unveiled the third generation of its venerable Challenger 300/350 family in September with a new name that aligns it with global nomenclature and incorporates several premium interior features such as Bombardier’s Nuage seats and a voice-activated cabin management system.

Continuing a long-standing relationship with Bombardier, FACC will produce and certify components for cabin sidewalls, headliners, bulkheads and passenger service units for the Challenger 3500. Components supplied will include interior liners, wardrobe, the kitchen, various cabinets, tables, luggage compartments, partitions, cabling and toilet components.

Noting that the project is focused on durability, the FACC said each cabin will be custom-built with painted, plated or leather-covered components upon request. The components will be delivered fully assembled to Bombardier in Montreal. The FACC said it has invested in its manufacturing plant and refined its processes and materials to enable more sustainable interiors.

“The redesigned cabin components combine high-quality, durable materials and advanced technologies with the highest standards in aesthetics, comfort and functionality,” said FACC CEO Robert Machtlinger.
