StandardAero is now offering Bombardier Challenger 604 owners and operators the Pro Line Fusion upgrade now that Collins Aerospace opened the STC to its dealer network about a month ago. In that short time, StandardAero has quoted nine Fusion installs, and the upgrade continues to gain interest, a company spokesman told AIN.
“Because of our experience, we have seen an uptick in Challenger Fusion quotes since Collins has released Fusion to the dealer network,” StandardAero director of avionics program management Jerry Sanders told AIN. “Pro Line Fusion is exciting because it provides an intuitive touchscreen approach to a Challenger 604 flight deck that will enhance the pilot and passenger experience.”
Sanders noted that StandardAero has a lot of experience on Collins cockpit upgrades. “We have worked on various STCs including synthetic vision, FANS-1/A, and MultiScan weather radar,” he added.
The Fusion upgrade features 14.1-inch touchscreens, ADS-B Out and FANS-1/A, synthetic vision, LPV/RNP approaches, and improved FMS. StandardAero is among a number of other MRO providers to offer the Fusion upgrade for the large-cabin Challenger.
