Farnborough Aircraft Interiors Ltd (FAI), a 32-year old company recognised as one of the leading specialists in corporate, medical and military interiors for fixed and rotary wing aircraft is delighted to announce that it has welcomed Windsor Capital LLP as an investor in the business.

For over thirty years, FAI has established itself as a provider of bespoke interior completions and refurbishments to a wide range of aircraft owners around the world. As a provider of VIP interiors to OEMs and Manufacturers it is internationally recognised for its attention to detail and high quality.

Headed by father and son team, Hugh and Stewart Macrae, the company provides a variety of services from full cabin completion through refreshes, to military and special operations interiors on brand new and previously owned fixed and rotary wing aircraft.

Based at Farnborough Airport in the United Kingdom, the team comprises skilled craftsmen with many decades of experience and many hundreds of completions to call on across a range of aircraft as diverse as Airbus, Bell, Bombardier, Embraer, Leonardo, Textron and Sikorsky, to mention only a few.

Hugh Macrae, CEO: “FAI have had an excellent thirty-two years and we’re keen to build on those firm foundations for the future growth of the company. We’re fortunate to have an excellent reputation, largely based on hard work, customer service and the high quality of our finished products, and with the addition of Windsor Capital to the business, we know that we’re setting the path to continued success”.

Stewart Macrae, MD: “In the thirty-two years since Hugh started FAI we’ve seen the business turn from a small one-man operation through to a mature business working with aircraft manufacturers providing bespoke interior solutions for multimillion dollar aircraft. Throughout it all the business has been focussed on delivering the highest quality interiors, on time and on budget.

The addition of the team at Windsor Capital to the mix ensures that we’re set for the next generation’s growth and expansion and we’re all incredibly excited to have them on board”.

Dave Edwards, of Windsor Capital: “We’re delighted to welcome Farnborough Aircraft Interiors Ltd to the Windsor Capital portfolio. We’re not an investment company in the traditional sense, rather we’re taking a fresh approach to the aviation industry based on our successful careers within it. Having worked with Hugh and Stewart for almost twenty years we’ve seen the business grow to become one of the key interiors providers to a significant number of manufacturers, maintenance providers and owners.

With the breadth and depth of the skills at Windscap, combined with the attention to detail, focus and care that the FAI team provide to our customers, we’re really excited about the future”. Financial details of the deal have not been disclosed.
