Challenger 600 series base maintenance services

The Bombardier Challenger 600 series (601/604/605) is a hugely popular business jet range favoured by owners for its cabin space, load capacity, comfort and relatively low per hour operating costs. Due to its popularity we offer a variety of AOG, line and base maintenance services for this type around the world.

Challenger 600 series base maintenance. Services you can trust.

With many aircraft coming into another cycle of major checks, with 96 and 180 month major inspections (CL604) a common occurance for owners, as well as landing gear overhauls at 60 and 120 months plus the requirements of new air traffic control mandates such as FANS-1/A, CPDLC and ADS-B Out, the planning and selection of base maintenance facilities to minimise downtime has become an art.

Challenger 604: Branson tank failure

During a 60 month inspection of a Challenger 604 at Palm Beach International, the forward branson tank failed the intertank pressure test. The team at PBI, despite a hard deadline to release the aircraft safely back to service, removed and repaired the tank, retesting it on the way to completing the 60 month inspection. This also included a 400 hour APU, engine 1 and 2 plus airframe inspection.

“The team did an excellent job in bringing the aircraft back to service. Having seen some pictures along the way I couldn’t believe the condition the aircraft was returned in. Spectacular job and I couldn’t recommend the team highly enough.”
