Canadian-registered aircraft receives FANS 1/A and ADS-B Out upgrade at Flying Colours

Flying Colours Corp has installed Rockwell Collins’s Future Airspace Navigation System (FANS) 1/A system and its own ADS-B solution on a Bombardier Challenger 604 registered in Canada.

The upgrade was performed at Flying Colours’ site – a Bombardier authorized service facility – in Peterborough, Canada.

It was one part of a 48-month maintenance inspection incorporating a “full range of enhancements” that took under two months to complete. The aircraft was redelivered on August 3, 2017.

Flying Colours holds Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA) STCs for the ADS-B Out upgrade on Bombardier Challenger 300, 604 and 605 models.

“The combined installation was relatively straightforward as we are very familiar with the Challenger family,” said Sean Gillespie, executive vice president at Flying Colours Corp.

“It made complete sense for our customer to include these enhancements in a 48-month inspection as it reduces downtime and the overall expense. We’ve quickly become the go-to completions center for mandatory avionics upgrades on Bombardier Challenger 300, 604 and 605 types having secured our STC early.

“With Flying Colours ASF status and extensive avionics experience working on these aircraft types, we are well-positioned to support local and international customers.”
