DC Aviation Group has been awarded a contract for the comprehensive overhaul of a Challenger 605 including a 48-month check, a cabin refurbishment as well as a Proline 21 Advanced upgrade. The work will be carried out at DC Aviation's Stuttgart maintenance centre in Germany.

The Collins Aerospace Proline 21 Advanced upgrade includes the installation of Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) equipment. This surveillance technology is already mandatory in the USA and the UAE since 1st January 2020 and will be mandatory in Europe from 7 June 2020. With this system, the aircraft can be tracked as it determines its position via satellite navigation and periodically broadcasts it. The upgrade also includes the implementation of the TOSE (Take-Off Safety Enhancement) system.

Furthermore, a software upgrade of the third VHF transceiver will be carried out to meet the Eurocontrol Link 2000+ mandate.

Daniel Heidrich, director sales technical services for DC Aviation says: “DC Aviation has extensive experience maintaining and overhauling Challenger aircraft with a particular focus on avionics upgrades. Our passion for quality means that all safety standards are kept to the highest levels and all work is carried out with detailed precision.”
