Constant Aviation is on track to install the Collins Aerospace Pro Line Fusion flight deck in nearly 15 percent of the Bombardier Challenger 604s in the U.S., the company said yesterday. The Cleveland, Ohio-based MRO provider has completed 25 Fusion installations since 2018 and expects to perform 35 more by early next year.
“Operators looking to maximize the investment in their aircraft are electing to upgrade to Pro Line Fusion,” said Constant director of avionics sales Blake Hogge. “With one installation, their airplanes are NextGen compliant with unparalleled situational awareness and safety enhancements, and they are well-positioned to operate into the future. This provides peace of mind and improves the airplane’s resale value.”
Replacing the Challenger 604’s factory-installed cockpit displays with three widescreen, high-resolution touchscreens with synthetic vision technology, Pro Line Fusion displays provide 35 percent more glass than legacy systems for enhanced data presentation and improved situational awareness. In addition to synthetic vision, the Fusion avionics package includes datalink, ADS-B Out, and WAAS/LPV, as well as optional Safe Flight AutoPower autothrottles and FANS-1/A.
