TAG Aviation Farnborough completes first Global Express upgrade
TAG Aviation Farnborough Maintenance Services has completed its first Global Express Aircraft project with Rockwell Collins’ Venue cabin management and entertainment system upgrade installation.
“As consumer technologies advance so rapidly, existing systems are fast becoming obsolete as their technology has become dated.”
“As consumer technologies advance so rapidly, existing systems are fast becoming obsolete as their technology has become dated,” said Stuart Kirkwood, sales director for TAG Aviation Farnborough Maintenance Services. “Our Maintenance Services’ team at Farnborough is impressed with this first installation result and with a growing demand for future generation CMS system upgrades, we can now support customers who want to add value and airborne enhancements to their aircraft with this fully-supported and exciting upgrade.”
“The aircraft owner is absolutely delighted with the Venue installation.”
“The aircraft owner is absolutely delighted with the Venue installation,” said Paul Burke of PB Engineering Solutions Ltd, the customer’s onsite technical representative. “It has provided greatly increased flexibility in the cabin, with functionality for audio, video, LED lighting, temperature control and window shades now readily available via cabin controllers or iPads. The introduction of cinematic sound along with AVOD, multiple source options and multiple cabin zones to HD monitors and iPads has vastly improved the experience for the Principle.”
“Performing this upgrade at the same time as our 180 Month major maintenance event made perfect sense as most of the interior had to be removed for the inspection which has made this modification far easier to achieve. We also took the opportunity to perform some much needed work on the soft furnishings as well as some refurbishment of the hard furnishings and finishes. TAG Aviation Farnborough Maintenance Services project managed the refurbishment from the outset, taking responsibility for bringing the various partners together. Their planned approach when faced with a number of difficulties brought the project together smoothly and efficiently,” added Burke.
