Aircraft Security & Alert Systems of Dallas has been selected to provide an advanced locking mechanism as standard equipment for Bombardier’s new Challenger 300. The main cabin door, baggage door and hell-hole door will come with Secure II Medeco hardened locks. According to a spokesman, the locks are “virtually impossible to pick, drill through or pry off an aircraft.” The keys are available only from Aircraft Security & Alert and only for the documented owner of the aircraft. The Secure II system is also available as a retrofit for the Challenger 600 series, at a cost for the basic three-door kit of $450.
