constant aviation signs first challenger 604 proline fusion® european customer

October 16, 2018

Constant Aviation, a full service aircraft Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) company with a nationwide network of facilities, has executed an agreement with Premium Jet AG to receive the first European Challenger 604 modification to ProLine Fusion®. Constant Aviation’s Nextant Aerospace division introduced the 604 ProLine Fusion® program at NBAA-BACE 2017. Since then, U.S. installations slots anticipating the Q4 2018 STC approval have had strong sales through Q2 2019 with limited capacity remaining. The company conducted private showings in the European market before EBACE earlier this summer. As Nextant’s exclusive dealer for the Pro Line Fusion® STC, Constant Aviation has scheduled the Premium Jet installation at its Sanford, Florida facility for late January 2019.
“We appreciate the confidence that Premium Jet has in working with us. This event demonstrates European Challenger 604 operators are considering having the Pro Line Fusion® modification performed in the United States where both Constant Aviation and Nextant are headquartered,” noted Stephen Maiden, Constant Aviation President and CEO. “The fact that Nextant is the STC designer brings a level of confidence to European operators, knowing that any deviations related to their aircraft will be managed efficiently,” added Maiden.

Daniel Kunz, Premium Jet’s Managing Partner said, “while considering the method for the Challenger 604 to comply with the 2020 avionics mandates, it became clear that the ProLine Fusion® upgrade offered by Constant Aviation is the way to go for an aircraft based and registered in Europe. Together with the aircraft owner, Premium Jet is proud to be the European Launch Customer and we look forward to operating the upgraded aircraft in early first quarter of 2019.”
