LINCOLN, NEB — Duncan Aviation’s avionics teams are installing the Collins Aerospace Pro Line Fusion in a Challenger 604 at the company’s full-service facility in Battle Creek, Michigan. This scalable, fully connected, integrated avionics system with advanced situational awareness and intuitive decision-making tools also features touch-control primary flight displays, heads-up vision systems, and weather-threat detection systems, all of which help pilots fly with greater precision.

Last year while their Challenger 604 was in Battle Creek for its 192-month inspection, a long-time Duncan Aviation customer approached Senior Avionics Sales Rep Justin Vena about updating some cabin and cockpit systems. Because the aircraft isn’t flying as much due to COVID-19, the customer wanted to take advantage of the downtime and get all of the work done at the same time. Their Challenger 604 input early in 2021 for the installation of the Alto Aviation Cadence Cabin Management System (CMS) and Cadence Switches, and the avionics install teams at Duncan Aviation’s Battle Creek facility are in the process of installing the Fusion flight deck, too.

“We’ve been installing the Collin’s Pro Line Fusion in Citation CJ3s since 2016, and we’ve installed dozens of them. We’re now able to offer this powerful suite to our Challenger 604 customers as well,” says Vena. “This gives customers with CL-600-2B16 variants the option to visit any of Duncan Aviation’s three main facilities or any of our Satellite Shops for this installation.”

The Collins Aerospace Pro Line Fusion has the following, powerful baseline features:

  • Future Air Navigation System (FANS 1/A) capability and Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B Out) compliance to the DO-260B standard
  • Better landing minimums with WAAS and LPV approaches
  • Radius-to-Fix (RF) legs to access efficient curved routes
  • Synthetic Vision System with terrain, obstacles, and airport highlighting
  • High-resolution topographical maps
  • Touchscreen primary displays
  • Graphical flight planning
  • Memorized flight deck formats
  • Terminal charts and enhanced maps
  • Automatic display and sensor reversion
