Nextant Aerospace has announced the launch of a new cockpit avionics programme in conjunction with Rockwell Collins that will bring Pro Line Fusion to the Bombardier Challenger 604 aircraft platform.

The Pro Line Fusion upgrade is expected to be certified by fall of 2018 and available through Nextant Aerospace.

“We have been evaluating opportunities in the large cabin market for the past three years,” said Jay Heublein, Executive Vice President for Nextant Aerospace. “The Challenger 604 aircraft is a proven operating platform with an exceptional cabin that meets all our selection criteria for a remanufacturing programme. The legacy cockpit is in need of modernisation and combined with the pending 2020 regulatory requirements, this aircraft an ideal choice for this program and the timing is perfect.”

“The Challenger 604 is a highly-valued, long-haul aircraft that owners want to continue flying well into the future,” said Craig Olson, Vice President and General Manager, Business and Regional Systems for Rockwell Collins. “This becomes the third aircraft platform to have the Pro Line Fusion aftermarket upgrade option, continuing our ongoing effort to provide owners with a means to keep their aircraft relevant with modern technology, enhanced situational awareness and mandate compliance.”
