Duncan Aviation has been given the rare opportunity to present Challenger 601-3R s/n 5151, one of the nicest examples of a 601-3R available. Not only is it exceptionally equipped, it has been in service for only a few months since complete paint and interior refurbishment. To cap off this “trifecta” serial number 5151 is enrolled on both MSP Gold for the APU and GE OnPoint with Life Limited Parts Coverage for its “On-Condition” Engines.

But wait, the story gets better! Serial number 5151 has the following additional key features to complement its market-leading status:
• Dual Honeywell NZ-2010 FMS with WAAS/LPV
• ADS-B Out
• TCAS 7.1
• Flight Data Recorder
• GoGo ATG-5000 HSD/WiFi
• Iridium Satcom System

Serial number 5151 has been a North American based Challenger since new. Originally a demonstrator for Canadair, it was Canadian based before importation to the USA. In the last 24 months, serial number 5151 has been heavily scrutinized by two of the top independent Bombardier ASCs. In early 2018 it underwent a complete 12/24/36/48/60 month inspection at Flying Colours in Peterborough, Canada. Later that year a full Pre-Purchase Evaluation was performed by Duncan Aviation in Lincoln, Nebraska on behalf of the current owner.

Serial number 5151 features the desirable ten (10) passenger configuration with forward four (4) place club arrangement and aft four (4) place side facing divan opposite two (2) club chairs. The interior is tastefully finished in Snow White and Caressa Pewter leather, Looped Raven carpet, and Champagne Exelleather headliner. Both the galley and lav flooring have been finished with Aeroloc magnetic tile for durability and easy panel access. The spacious galley is equipped with amenities including oven, coffeemaker, and microwave, while cabin connectivity and entertainment are provided by Aircell GoGo ATG-5000 High Speed Internet, Iridium Satcom Phone System, and Airshow 400.

The 601-3R is often overshadowed in the market by the Challenger 604. However, in many ways the 601-3R with its identical cabin size represent a better overall value in terms of both acquisition and ownership costs. Parts commonality with the earlier 601 series means components are widely available on the secondary market at competitive prices. The current owner is very reluctant to sell because the aircraft has been trouble free; however, a recent business expansion has substantively changed the mission profile. If you are looking for “real” turn-key 601-3R, serial number 5151 sets the pace.
