Collins Aerospace announced it has surpassed 50 installation upgrades of its Pro Line Fusion integrated avionics system for the Bombardier Challenger 604 aircraft. Fusion is an update to the factory-installed avionics suite, replacing difficult to repair cathode ray tube (CRT) displays with dependable, high-resolution touchscreens and making the Challenger 604 compliant with national airspace modernization requirements. The Collins 604 aircraft Pro Line Fusion upgrade is currently available for customers throughout Bombardier’s service centre network.

Pro Line Fusion seamlessly integrates everything a pilot needs into the touchscreen displays, bringing new levels of simplicity, flexibility and predictability to flight operations,” said Marc Ayala, senior director of sales for Business and Regional Avionics at Collins Aerospace. “This powerful flight deck technology not only complies with regulatory standards, but lowers pilot workload, enables greater situational awareness and brings pilot’s eyes up and out from CDUs and keyboards to perform their critical tasks quickly, more efficiently and with increased reliability on Fusion’s three large displays.”

With 56 total Challenger 604 upgrades completed by Collins’ network of installation dealers, Fusion’s all-in-one, cost-efficient solution utilizes advanced technology to provide outsized benefits to operators.
