US business aviation MRO specialist West Star Aviation has been authorised to install the Pro Line Fusion system in Challenger 604 aircraft. As an authorised Collins Aerospace dealer, the upgrade is available at any of West Star's four full-service locations at Grand Junction, Colorado; East Alton, Illinois; Chattanooga, Tennessee; and Perryville, Missouri.
The Pro Line Fusion system is a comprehensive avionics upgrade that will keep the Challenger 604 in compliance with both domestic and international mandates, all while mitigating obsolescence issues with legacy systems. The upgrade increases flight safety by including synthetic vision and graphical flight planning. Other features and benefits of the fully integrated avionics upgrade for the Challenger 604 include: datalink including FANS and CPDLC; compliance with FAA and international Airspace mandates; future-proofed avionics; safety enhancements with synthetic vision and graphical flight planning; fully integrated EICAS systems; and a fully integrated auto throttle.
“We look forward to providing our Challenger 604 customers the very highest aircraft value with the most comprehensive avionics upgrade available. This upgrade and its options truly put the 604 fully back into International conformity, where it was designed to be,” says Walt Marcy, avionics technical sales manager, West Star Aviation, Grand Junction.
