Cost-effective solutions to manage the increasing demands of flying trans-Atlantic

The upgrade makes installation and training straightforward for operators by building on the aircraft’s current flight management system (FMS) and control display units (CDUs), while incorporating a new communications management unit (CMU) provided by Rockwell Collins.  FANS 1/A capability adds to a growing list of Challenger 604 avionics updates that prepare operators for airspace modernization worldwide.
