Bombardier's Service Centre at the Seletar
Aerospace Park in Singapore has installed and certified a
Lufthansa Technik AG nice HD Cabin Management System (CMS) and SDR
Wi-Fi system in a Global Express XRS aircraft.
This is the first
time that a Bombardier business jet in the Asia-Pacific region has
achieved such an installation milestone.
Installed by the engineering team in Singapore
for an undisclosed customer,
the installation upgrades the 10-year-old CMS with the nice HD
system on the aircraft.
The Singapore Service Centre is more than quadrupling its current 100,000 sq. ft.
