StandardAero Delivers 1st Collins Aerospace Pro Line Fusion Cockpit Upgrade for Bombardier Challenger 604 Aircraft

StandardAero recently delivered its first Collins Aerospace Pro Line Fusion modification/upgrade on a Bombardier Challenger 604.  The first installation aircraft departed StandardAero’s Springfield, Illinois maintenance facility on September 24, 2021.

The installation was supported by a Collins Aerospace Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) and the Pro Line Fusion upgrade removes the existing cathode ray tube displays and replaces them with touchscreen capable liquid crystal displays.  The modification allows for features such as LPV, synthetic vision, multi-scan radar, graphical weather and FANS-1/A, giving operators more functionality and situational awareness in the cockpit.  The modification also addresses obsolescence issues inherent to the existing CRT displays.

The total work scope on this Challenger 604 aircraft also included the installation of a Collins Aerospace Venue Cabin Management System and a complete cabin interior refresh.
