Duncan Aviation Turns Solid Challenger Into Remarkable Offering


“The Challenger 601 cabin is very spacious; it is not cluttered yet has everything an owner will need. The new interior is beautiful and functional and can be both productive and relaxing for the new owner.

Duncan Design selected finish materials that were a little unusual—more contemporary with colors that are not typical for aviation. We updated all soft goods and upholstery including new headliner, window panel, psu, and bulkhead fabrics, and selected new Scott Group wool carpeting. The seat design is from the Duncan Design Collection and includes accent welt cord and contrasting French stitching.”

Challenger 601-3A s/n 5016 was a solid aircraft before it ever rolled into the hangar at Duncan Aviation. Attracted by its maintenance history and avionics package, Duncan Aviation purchased the aircraft and began to make it even better. Now that it is complete, it is a stellar preowned aircraft offering. When Duncan Aviation modifies an aircraft, it becomes even more than it was before. The final product has delivered a Challenger with impressive avionics and entertainment packages, a unique and beautiful interior designed for the long haul, industry-leading paint and a complete maintenance record with the Duncan Aviation name in the logbook. Take a virtual tour.



“In my opinion, Challenger 601-3A, SN 5016, is the best 601 on the market because it has already undergone the best pre-purchase evaluation you can accomplish. The Duncan Aviation airframe department completed the largest, most in-depth structural inspection currently required, the 24, 36, 48, 60, 120, 180, 240 month inspection. This inspection is key because it is so thorough and because it allowed us to implement the new Corrosion Prevention and Control Program.”

“The new electronics make this aircraft ready immediately for business or pleasure. We installed a new Honeywell MH Series Audio/Video Cabin Entertainment System with an LED Cabin Management Switch package. There are two DVD/CD Players, an iPod interface, an XM radio control panel, nine organic LED switch panels, eight speakers, two subwoofers and two 20” monitors. A highlight is the Pronto remote, which controls lighting and temperature as well as audio and video. Passengers will also have access to an Aircell Axxess phone system with three flush-mount handsets.”
