Duncan Aviation completed a Collins Aerospace Pro Line Fusion upgrade on a Cessna Citation CJ2+—only the fourth such install on that model industry-wide and Duncan's 30th CitationJet—as part of a larger multi-shop refresh of the aircraft that also included paint, interior, and airframe work.
The MRO completed the work at its Lincoln, Nebraska, facility. Interior specialists there worked with Duncan lead designer Heather Pridemore from the company’s Battle Creek, Michigan, facility on the reupholstering of the leather seats, installation of new carpet, and addition of “sharp-looking” lower side ledges. The refurbishment brightened the interior over the previous cabin, which Duncan described as dark, heavy, and dated.
A brighter custom paint scheme incorporating colors of the owner’s business was completed in addition to the avionics swap.
“I upgraded to the Pro Line Fusion suite because it provides more information at your fingertips. It makes your workload as a pilot so much easier,” said Drew Forhan, the owner and operator of the aircraft. “The system allows for more heads up flying, the graphical weather interface is much improved, and the touchscreens are very easy to use.”
“From the quote process to the time during the completion, Duncan Aviation was thorough and accurate in quoting the project and timeline expectations,” said Forhan. “Throughout the process, myDuncan was very helpful in keeping me up-to-date with the plane with pictures.”
