FACC (Ried im Innkreis, Austria) recently signed a life of program contract with Bombardier Aviation (Montréal, Canada) and will manufacture radomes for the Challenger and Global business jet families.

The project start is scheduled for third quarter of 2019, with production deliveries planned to begin in 2020. FACC says that design requirements for the radomes will emphasize stability, low weight, reliability and minimal attenuation of the signal transmitted or received by the antenna, as well as high-strength properties for protection of the radar antenna.

FACC has already been producing aerostructure assemblies and cabin interiors for Bombardier, supplying technologies to the Challenger 350 and Global 7500 aircraft programs such as wing-to-body fairings, rudders, bypass ducts, cabin linings and cabinets. In all of its Bombardier aircraft projects, FACC says it is emphasizing investments in innovative manufacturing technologies and developing a cost-competitive, efficient production line.

“This contract is the next step in our long-standing relationship with Bombardier,” says Robert Machtlinger, CEO of FACC. “This contract represents our continued support of Bombardier, who has chosen FACC’s comprehensive expertise for the manufacture of the radomes. We see ourselves as a technological leader in the field of high-strength, lightweight components for civil aircraft.”
