Bombardier is celebrating the 350th delivery of its beloved and best-selling Challenger 350 business jet, which continues to evolve and solidify its market-leading status.
The Challenger 350 aircraft is a force in the business jet industry, strengthening its position year after year with enhancements and upgrades to its winning combination of performance and cabin experience. Among the qualities that set this aircraft apart from competitors is an intercontinental range that holds true at full fuel and with eight passengers, and an award-winning cabin designed for unparalleled comfort. Among pilots, the Challenger 350 aircraft is recognized as being agile, reliable and a pleasure to fly.
“The 350th delivery of a Challenger 350 aircraft, reached after only six years in service, speaks volumes,” said Peter Likoray, Senior Vice President, Worldwide Sales and Marketing, Bombardier Business Aircraft. “This achievement shows the great confidence customers place in this aircraft and demonstrates Bombardier’s production proficiency and strong supplier base.”
Given its many outstanding qualities, it’s no wonder the Challenger 350 business jet is a favorite among fleet operators, has collected multiple awards and maintained a brisk pace of deliveries since entering service in June 2014. As of May 31, 2020, the worldwide fleet of in-service Challenger 350 aircraft accumulated more than 648,000 flight hours and more than 383,000 landings.
The Challenger 350 aircraft holds the coveted title of best-selling super mid-size business jet for six consecutive years, capturing 43 per cent of market share in 2019.
Amid all this success, Bombardier has introduced a steady stream of enhancements to the Challenger 350 aircraft, including an available compact head-up display (HUD) and Enhanced Vision System (EVS), class-leading cabin sound-proofing technology and refined cockpit aesthetics. A performance improvement package also allows the aircraft to fly up to 1,500 nautical miles farther than before out of short runways, complementing its already impressive takeoff and landing performance that includes steep-approach capability.
The Challenger 350 business jet has a true, seats full, tanks full, 3,200-nautical-mile range and can connect New York to London or Paris to Dubai* with a smooth ride and the lowest direct operating costs in its category.
