The Future Airspace Navigation System (FANS) 1/A upgrade for the Bombardier
Challenger 604 aircraft enables operators to access preferred, wind-efficient
trans-Atlantic routes. This solution saves time and fuel for the operators. FANS
1/A combines an avionics upgrade with ARINCDirectSM flight support services. The
upgrade makes installation and training straightforward for operators by
building on the aircraft’s current flight management system (FMS) and control
display units (CDUs), while incorporating a new communications management unit
(CMU) provided by Collins Aerospace.
