Jet Aviation to install ProLine 21 advanced cockpit upgrade in Challengers
Jet Aviation is preparing cockpit avionics systems in older Challenger 605s and 300s for new communications and navigation upgrades that will improve transoceanic flights and meet upcoming U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) requirements. The ProLine 21 Advanced cockpit communications upgrade from Rockwell Collins is the only one compatible with systems in older Challenger 605s and 300s to meet the FAA’s Automatic Dependent Surveillance – Broadcast (ADS-B) requirements that go into effect in 2020. The upgrade is standard on newer Challenger 605s and 300s, which do not need the change to conform to the ADS-B requirements.
