Bombardier Challenger 604

Bombardier Challenger 604 - Passenger aircraft increased comfort, which is developed by the Canadian company Bombardier Business Aircraft (Bombardier Canadair Corporation subsidiary), is intended for use on air lines, large and medium-haul. The first flight of Challenger 604 with motors CF343A was in September 1994, with more improved engines CF343B plane took off 17.03.1995. The plane appeared airworthiness certificate from Transport Canada in September 1994. The first sale of new aircraft started in January 1996.

The history of the Challenger 604 aircraft originates in the 1980-x. More precisely, in the 1978 made its first flight of its prototype - the medium-range passenger plane of business class Canadair CL 600 Challenger, which is known as the Challenger 600. The aircraft, which was released by the Canadian company Bombardier Business Aircraft, turned out to be almost perfectly balanced, but it was difficult to modify it for other tasks, since changing one parameter led to a sharp deterioration in other characteristics.

After making some versions of the Challenger, in the design process which increased the fuel capacity and enhanced avionics supplied with modern navigation piloting SollipsRgoLine4 complex, there was a business jet aircraft CL604. It happened in 1994, after a year started serial production liner in the 2003 Challenger 604 and began to take off from Russian bands.

Thanks to the combination of versatility and the comfort of using the Bombardier Challenger, 604 has been holding the leading position among business jets of a large class for ten years. The aircraft has operational certificates in 45 countries of the world. The aircraft can fly at a maximum speed of 870 km / h., At a distance carrying up to 7500km 9-16 passengers. The aircraft uses the latest achievements in the field of avionics. The Precision Plus system automatically calculates the optimal thrust and speed for the engines, and the Safe Flight Auto Power system provides excellent smoothness of speed variation. Thanks to these and many other advantages, the Challenger 604 has proven itself to be a very reliable, economical and exceptionally comfortable aircraft.

At the moment, the Challenger604 is a plane, of which there are few in the world. It has an intercontinental flight range, combined with a record high rate for its class of cruising speed and is distinguished by large passenger compartment sizes. An important advantage of the aircraft is that it is equipped with a heating power supply system, it contains a separate toilet compartment, and is equipped in the standard version with the means during the flight of communication. The Challenger604 liner includes a huge luggage compartment with good sealing, it is accessible during the entire flight.

The airplane is therefore ideal for long-distance flights with a large number of transfers, since luggage is constantly replenished in such cases, and the large dimensions of the cabin, free space and comfort are extremely important. The interior of the salon is unique and unique, it is furnished with comfortable modern furniture, equipped with air conditioning, stereo and DVD-systems, which even a very demanding passenger will like. Due to the increased configuration of the passenger compartment, the aircraft increased by 0,5 meters in comparison with the <younger brother> Challenger601, thanks to this the number of windows in the two windows increased.

If a more detailed talk about the technical properties of the Challenger 604, in comparison with predecessors CL601 CL600 and large aircraft has not changed, apart from, perhaps, a greater range. Through the installation of tanks with more fuel capacity than the Challenger 601, the largest distance flight Challenger604 increased to 7458km.

Engineers performed onboard cockpit avionics equipment on the basis of Collins ProLine 4, and the engines installed brand 2xGeneralElectric CF343Bs modification.

The cabin with increased comfort of this aircraft has the following dimensions: 8,66м. in length, 2,5m. wide and 1,86m. in height. The number of passengers in the cabin may vary in the range 10-18 people, the crew - 3 people. The cabin and the cockpit are equipped with modern air conditioning systems. The interior of the cabin is designed to meet the requirements of the most demanding passengers. The spacious VIP lounge is equipped with a sofa, soft armchairs, tables, which create an ideal environment for rest and work. On board there are communication devices, modern VIDEO / AUDIO systems. In addition, during the flight, passengers can freely pass for the necessary things to the luggage compartment. In addition, the plane is mounted a special noise system, which was developed by UltraElectronics, which suppresses vibration, which further increases the comfort of the flight.
