Elliott Aviation, a leading MRO provider announced a recent delivery of a 7,800 cycle Challenger 604 inspection. This inspection is one of the most in-depth inspections available for the airframe and is the equivalent of a D check on a commercial airliner. It consisted of over 3,500-man hours to complete. The aircraft was completed on-time and squawk-free.

During the 7,800 cycle inspection, the aircraft completed 600, 800 and 2,400-hour airframe inspections, as well as 600, 800 and 2,400-hour engine inspections. In addition, Elliott Aviation completed an ADS-B installation on the aircraft.

We have factory-trained Challenger mechanics, and our Challenger crew chief has over 20 years of experience with the airframe.”
