RUAG Aviation has upgraded the avionics baseline of a Bombardier Challenger 601 to comply with regulatory mandates that are due to take effect in 2020. The first upgrade of its kind to be completed in Europe, the ADS-B Out, FMS 6.1 and LPV integration was carried out at RUAG's facility in Munich.

“This is a milestone for our customer, as well as for all operators of older aircraft,” states senior VP Volker Wallrodt. “For aircraft such as the Challenger 601, flying with ADS-B Out today provides pilots with a number of immediate benefits, and ensures that the aircraft is equipped to fly after 31 December, 2019.

“Equipping older aircraft with ADS-B transponders improves operational flexibility and preserves investment, because it allows those aircraft to continue to operate reliably and profitably while adhering to the latest aviation regulations.”

RUAG integrates solutions for older aircraft, including the CL601 and Falcon 900, to meet the full scope of EASA and FAA standards for ADS-B.
