Bombardier has launched a suite of 12 product enhancements providing a range of upgrades to its business jets available for installation at service centers.

For heightened pilot awareness, Bombardier is offering enhanced LCD cockpit displays for Learjet 40/45 aircraft and a Synthetic Vision System (SVS) as a retrofit option on Global aircraft.

Challenger 300 series and Challenger 604 aircraft operators can opt for the future area navigation system (FANS) over Iridium hardware, which facilitates pilot communication with air traffic control and allows aircraft to fly over certain routes in North America, the Atlantic and Europe. The system also meets the upcoming 2020 ADS-B out compliance deadline.

Bombardier also offers new cabin enhancements including custom-crafted stone flooring and conference tables on both Challenger and Global aircraft that feature a single-pillar pedestal for ergonomically comfortable and spacious seating.
