Bombardier’s new Challenger 350 will feature an upgraded flight deck, the Rockwell Collins Pro Line 21 Advanced system, which will also be available as a retrofit on Challenger 300s. New capabilities include synthetic vision, Fans 1/A, ADS-B out, CPDLC, RNP basic and authorization required and LPV guidance. The Rockwell Collins MultiScan threat-detection system radar will also be available for both the Challenger 300 and 350. MultiScan reduces pilot workload by automatically identifying weather and turbulence.
Another Pro Line 21 Advanced feature is the latest version of the Rockwell Collins integrated flight information System (IFIS) with XM satellite weather (available in North America), global weather via datalink and paperless display of charts, maps and documents. IFIS is also integrated with Rockwell Collins’s Ascend Flight Information Manager system, which allows operators to update maintenance and flight operations data, including avionics databases, wirelessly anywhere in the world.
