Challenger 604

Challenger 604 Overview

Challenger is a product of Canadair, a subsidiary of Bombardier, Inc. It was originally developed in the mid-1970s to be the Learstar 600 in collaboration between Candair and Bill Lear of Learjet. However, in 1976 Canadair purchased the Learstar rights and redesigned it to be the Challenger. Challenger is a long-range executive jet best recognized for its very wide cabin (only Falcon 900 is wider; by 1 inch). Both thrust reverse and APU are standard on all Challenger models. This aircraft can be RVSM certified when service bulletin SB-600-0673 is complied with.
The 604 is a longer-range derivative of the 601-3R with a larger fuel capacity and upgraded CF34-3B engines. Standard avionics include a Collins Pro Line 4 package, dual Collins FMS-6000 FMS, dual Litton LTN-101 IRS and Collins WXP-4220 digital turbulence detection radar. This aircraft can be RVSM certified when Service Bulletin SB-604-34-012 is complied with.
