Overview

The Challenger 300 is a 3,100 nm range, super midsize business jet made by Bombardier Aerospace in Canada. The project was announced at the July 1999 Paris Air Show as the Bombardier Continental. It made its maiden flight on 14 August, 2001 and was renamed Challenger 300 in September 2002. Canadian type approval was given on 31 May, 2003 and it entered service on 8 January, 2004.

The fuselage and the wing are semi-monocoque aluminium structures. Its supercritical wings have a fixed leading-edge, a 27 per cent sweep angle and 1.15m composite winglets. The Challenger 300 uses two Honeywell HTF 7000 turbofan engines, flat rated to 6,826 pounds of thrust each, and can take off in 4,810 ft. It can comfortably cruise above most bad weather and air traffic with a flight ceiling of 45,000 ft, and can carry eight passengers at a Mach 0.80 long range cruise.

The Challenger 350 is a slightly improved 3,200 nm range variant which first flew on 2 March, 2013 and was approved on 11 June, 2014. Hot-section modifications and FADEC increased the engine take off thrust to 7,323 lbs. A strengthened wing with canted winglets and more span allows for 900 lb more full fuel payload.

In September 2021, Bombardier unveiled the Challenger 3500, which incorporates a standard-equipped autothrottle system, Nuage cabin seating, a voice-controlled cabin management system and a reduced cabin altitude of 4,850 ft at 41,000 ft. The 3500 entered service in late 2022.
