DC rises to challenge of Challenger check and more
DC Aviation added value when refurbishing a Challenger 605 as part of a 48-month inspection. Collins Pro Line 21 was installed, the aircraft was made ADS-B compliant, and a TOSE system was added for better takeoffs.
The client was said to be very satisfied with the end result.

DC Aviation's maintenance team at Stuttgart airport in Germany has completed a 48-month check on a Challenger 605.

The comprehensive maintenance work included a full cabin refurbishment using the latest materials and painting work. In addition, an extended upgrade of the Collins Pro Line 21 avionics system was implemented. This includes the installation of ADS-B. This air traffic control system for displaying aircraft movements in airspace has been mandatory in the USA and the UAE since 1 January 2020. This system enables the aircraft's route to be tracked, as it determines its exact flight position via satellite navigation and periodically broadcasts it. The upgrade also includes the implementation of the take-off safety enhancement (TOSE) system.

Jürgen Sehne, VP of maintenance and CAMO of DC Aviation comments: “Our maintenance team performed the complex work with the highest level of reliability and expertise. Through intelligent planning, we are able to ensure smooth workflows and meet tight ground times.”

DC Aviation offers line and base maintenance services for a wide range of aircraft types in a specially equipped 5,000 sqm hangar at Stuttgart and a 12,500 sqm approved maintenance facility at Al Maktoum International airport in Dubai. DC maintains a large parts inventory and special tools for specific aircraft, a battery and wheel shop, testing equipment and a maintenance logistics centre. Unconventional repairs and modifications can also be completed on an efficient and flexible basis, taking into account a customer's flight requirements. Its comprehensive CAMO approval fulfils all EASA requirements for maintenance and airworthiness certification. These and other measures form a solid base for the sustainable preservation of the value and maximum availability of every maintained aircraft.
