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.

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 such dimensions: 8,66m. In length, 2,5M. Width and 1,86. In height. The number of passengers can vary in the range of 10-18 people, the crew - 3 person. The cabin and cockpit are equipped with modern air conditioning systems. The interior of the cabin is so arranged to satisfy the requirements of the most demanding passengers.
