Challenger 605 Technology

The Challenger 605 aircraft flight deck is perhaps the purest expression of added value, particularly as it relates to safety. The Rockwell Collins Pro Line 21 avionics system is fully integrated and ready to evolve toward the free-flight environment and digital satellite-based communications of the future. Its flexible user interface reduces pilot workload while its superior graphics capabilities significantly enhance crew situational awareness in all phases of flight. In addition, the reduced parts count, integration of functions, and innovative new technologies provide unparalleled reliability, maintainability, and dispatchability.

  • Rockwell Collins Pro Line 21 avionics suite with four (4) large LCD screens and integrated menu control
  • Dual autopilot with autothrottle
  • EFIS/EICAS system with synoptics
  • Dual FMS-6000 with coupled lateral and vertical nav and performance calculations
  • Dual Honeywell Laseref V Inertial Reference System with automatic position initialization
  • Integrated Radio Tuning with Rockwell Collins Pro Line 21 VHF/Nav radios
  • Integrated electronic standby instruments
  • Integrated flight information system supports e-charts operations, reducing the need for paper

Designed by industry-leading engineers in rigorous consultation with corporate pilots, the Challenger 605 aircraft is the most ergonomic and one of the best-equipped business jets in its class.
