The Challenger 350 is the fastest business jet in history to reach 300 deliveries in the medium and large categories, syas Bombardier, and was recently recognised by Robb Report Magazine as the 'Best of the Best' super mid-size aircraft for the second consecutive year. Since 1988, these awards spotlight products, services and destinations at the pinnacle of their industries. The Challenger 300 series has received the honour seven times.
“The delivery of the 300th Challenger 350 business jet in only five years after its entry-into-service represents another exciting milestone for Bombardier, and underscores the trust our customers place in this industry-leading aircraft,” says Bombardier Business Aircraft senior vice president, worldwide sales and marketing Peter Likoray. “We are equally delighted that it has been honoured as Best of the Best by Robb Report. This prestigious recognition speaks to the worldwide acknowledgement that there is simply no aircraft like the Challenger 350 jet in its segment.”
Bombardier recently announced an update on a series of enhancements to the Challenger 350, that include available compact Head-up Display (HUD) and Enhanced Vision System (EVS), state-of-the-art cabin sound-proofing technology and refined cockpit aesthetics. A performance improvement package also allows the aircraft to fly up to 1,500 nm farther out of short runways, complementing its steep approach certifications awarded by EASA, FAA and TC.
Challenger aircraft are assembled at Bombardier Aviation's facility in Montreal, Quebec. The site comprises end-to-end assembly, completion, pre-flight and delivery activities for the Challenger 350 and Challenger 650 programmes. The 350 can fly full range at full fuel with full seat capacity, and accommodates up to 10 passengers with a fully-equipped galley, unrestricted access to the baggage compartment at all flight levels and enhanced sound-proofing technology.
