Austria-based FACC has been awarded a contract to supply the radomes for Bombardier Business Aircraft’s family of Globals and Challengers and paves the way for a more diverse portfolio of work. “The contract positions FACC as an important supplier on some of the industry’s leading aircraft, offering FACC additional opportunities in the aerostructures business segment,” the company said.
Under the life-of-program contract for Challengers and Globals, production deliveries are planned to begin in 2020. It builds on aerostructures assemblies and cabin interiors FACC already supplies to the Canadian airframer for the Challenger 350 and Global 7500, including wing-to-body fairings, rudders, bypass ducts, cabin linings, and cabinets.
“We are proud to have been awarded this new contract, which matches perfectly with our strategy to widen our product portfolio,” said Stefan Schamberger, FACC director of programs and sales aerostructures. “It offers us the opportunity to broaden our relationship with Bombardier as one of its suppliers.”
