Duncan Aviation has delivered a Challenger 604 equipped with the Collins Aerospace Pro Line Fusion. The avionics installation team at the company's full-service facility in Battle Creek, Michigan installed this scalable, fully connected, integrated avionics system with advanced situational awareness and intuitive decision-making tools. Featuring touch-control primary flight displays, heads-up vision systems and weather-threat detection systems, the system lets pilots fly with greater precision.
Another Challenger 604 due to be upgraded to this integrated avionics system should arrive at Duncan Aviation's Battle Creek facility by the end of this month.
“Since 2016, we've installed dozens of the Collins Pro Line Fusion in Citation CJ3s. We're now able to offer this powerful suite to our Challenger 604 customers,” says Justin Vena, senior avionics sales rep for Duncan Aviation. “This gives customers with CL-600-2B16 variants the option to visit any of our three main facilities or our satellites for this installation.”
The Collins Aerospace Pro Line Fusion features: Future Air Navigation System (FANS 1/A) capability and Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B Out) compliance to the DO-260B standard; better landing minimums with WAAS and LPV approaches; radius-to-fix (RF) legs to access efficient curved routes; synthetic vision system with terrain, obstacles, and airport highlighting; high-resolution topographical maps; touchscreen primary displays; graphical flight planning; memorised flight deck formats; terminal charts and enhanced maps; and automatic display and sensor reversion.
The Pro Line Fusion flight deck upgrade can be performed at any one of Duncan Aviation's three main facilities in Battle Creek, Michigan; Lincoln, Nebraska; and Provo, Utah or at any one of its 27 satellite stations.
