Constant Aviation and Nextant Aerospace are joining forces to offer 604XT upgraded, refurbished and customised aircraft directly to end-buyers.
Under the partnership, Nextant will acquire a Challenger 604 aircraft on behalf of the buyer, carry it through the upgrade and completion process, before delivering the aircraft to the customer in accordance with the buyer's specifications, in one seamless process. Constant Aviation, acting in its capacity as a Nextant authorised centre, will upgrade the aircraft with a Nextant 604XT next generation flight deck while refurbishing and customising the aircraft.
“We are happy to partner with Nextant Aerospace to offer this turnkey solution for aircraft buyers seeking to acquire a 604XT without going through the complication and time commitment required to acquire a pre-owned aircraft and manage it though the upgrade and completion process,” says Nextant's VP of sales Randy Znamenak. “As a further benefit, financing through industry leading institutions is also available.”
604XT completed aircraft are upgraded with Nextant's 604XT flight deck, which features Collins Aerospace's Pro Line Fusion avionics, along with options for a customised passenger cabin, intuitive cabin management, satellite connectivity and artisan exterior paint performed by Constant Aviation.
“The partnership is a natural extension of the Constant/Nextant relationship that enables the two companies to synergise their core expertise to satisfy the market's growing interest in the 604XT,” Znamenak continues. “604XT buyers will enjoy the simplicity of the process and high quality of the completion, along with the added benefit of bundling the aircraft acquisition and completion together into one aircraft purchase agreement to streamline financing and tax preparation.”
Constant Aviation has also been appointed an authorised service centre for the Rolls-Royce BR710 engine. The BR710 authorisation enables Constant to provide CorporateCare and warranty service on BR710 engines installed on Bombardier Global Express, Gulfstream GV and G550 aircraft.
“We are delighted to add the BR710 to Constant Aviation's previous AE3007 engine authorisation,” says Kimberly Rubush, Rolls-Royce service centre manager. “Over the years we have found Constant Aviation to be a high-quality partner that is dedicated to its customers.”
