Field Aviation galley water system for Wider?e Q400s
Field Aviation has developed a galley water system for the Bombardier Q400 turboprops of Norway’s Widerøe Airlines, which placed initial orders for seven units. One aircraft has been modified to date and is in service and Field will modify the airline's remaining Q400s at its Toronto facility once the aircraft are delivered from Bombardier.
Bombardier’s original “G1”galley and water system for the Q400 airliner is located in the rear passenger cabin and eliminates two revenue seats. The Field-modified “G3” system allows Widerøe to install a full complement of 78 seats in its Q400s.
The entire fleet of seven Widerøe aircraft will have the Field G3 galley water system installed and operating by early 2010. Field plans to offer its STC’d system to other Q400 operators worldwide.
