RUAG MRO International fulfilled avionics and cabin interior upgrades on a Bombardier Challenger 604 at their aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) facilities at Munich-Oberpfaffenhofen, Germany. The project ensured compliance with the ADS-B Out Mandate 2020 and included the installation of state-of-the-art cabin interior LED lighting. 

The owner of the Bombardier Challenger 604 opted to integrate an ADS-B Out avionics upgrade in order to comply with the European Aviation Safety Agency’s (EASA) Mandate 2020, set to go into effect on 7 June 2020. The RUAG MRO International team also fulfilled cabin modifications on the aircraft during the same downtime, saving the owner time and costs. 

RUAG’s in-house engineering and cabin interior shops ensured the project was completed on time and according to customer specifications. In addition to the integration of ADS-B Out avionics on the flight deck, the engineering team developed a minor modification for the upgrade and replacement of ageing LED lighting. The owner also used the downtime to refresh the cabin interior.
