Elliott Aviation Completes Its First Challenger 604 48-Month Inspection
Elliott Aviation announces the delivery of its first 48-month inspection on a Challenger 604 at its headquarters in Moline, IL. The aircraft was also delivered with interior and avionics, on time and on budget. The company currently has another Challenger 604 in work for a 7,800-cycle inspection.
Elliott Aviation launched its Challenger maintenance program in 2016, with a 48-month inspection of a Challenger 300. In addition to maintenance, the company has also completed large-scale paint and interior for multiple Challenger 300s. Elliott is currently qualified and approved to repair Challenger 300 and 604 and will soon add Challenger 605 to its repair station certificate.

We’ve invested a significant amount of training and tooling to launch our Challenger program and are happy to see this segment grow.”
