Transport Canada Approves Constant's CL604 Upgrade

Constant Aviation has received Transport Canada Civil Aviation approval for its Bombardier Challenger 604 flight deck upgrade, representing a promising new area of business for the Cleveland-based MRO provider. The upgrade replaces the Challenger 604's factory-installed CRT displays with Collins Aerospace Pro Line Fusion touchscreens. The Transport Canada STC validation enables Constant to install the upgrade on Canadian-registered Challenger 604s.

Moreover, it marks the first step toward international growth for the program with EASA approval pending. "Transport Canada validation opens up an important market for the Challenger 604 Pro Line Fusion upgrade," said Constant CEO David Davies. "There are more than 20 Challenger 604 aircraft registered in Canada, and their operators now have access to an unmatched avionics solution that modernizes these aircraft for many more years of use. Based on the response we have seen since launching this program in the United States, we expect Canadian-based operators will move quickly to install the Pro Line Fusion package on their Challenger 604 aircraft."

Since Constant began the program in the U.S. in 2018, it has completed 25 Pro Line Fusion installations.

It has three more installations pending in the U.S. and estimates 15 percent of Challenger 604s flying in the U.S. will receive the upgrade by mid-2021.
