FlightSafety International is now offering Collins Pro Line 4-to-Pro Line Fusion differences training to operators of Bombardier Challenger 604s upgraded by Nextant Aerospace with the latter avionics system. The FAA recently approved this differences training, which is required for Part 135 operators flying Nextant 604XTs.
“Challenger 604 operators have been anxiously awaiting an FAA-approved differences course for the Pro Line Fusion STC upgrade. FlightSafety International has delivered and operators are already being trained,” said Nextant 604XT program director Steve Bruce. “This also establishes the groundwork for EASA to have a training basis to support the European requirements.”
According to Nextant, demand for its 604XT Pro Line Fusion upgrade “is so strong that the company currently has seven installations in progress, with an estimated 30 that will be completed by the end of the year.” The upgrade modernizes the flight deck, adds touchscreen technology, and increases situational awareness. It also brings the aircraft into ADS-B compliance and replaces aging CRT displays.
