NetJets has taken delivery of its 100th Challenger aircraft from Bombardier. The 100th Challenger aircraft in NetJets' fleet is the super midsize Challenger 350, which in addition to reaching 300 deliveries faster than any other jet in the medium and large categories, is the best-selling business jet platform of the last decade, recognised for its performance, reliability and stylish cabin.

“We're very proud of our longstanding relationship with NetJets, which shares our desire to create an exceptional flight experience for customers,” says Bombardier Aviation president David Coleal. “This addition of a 100th Challenger aircraft to NetJets' fleet shows how sought-after this aircraft is and why it's simply the best business jet in its class.”

NetJets currently operates a combined total of 100 Challenger 350 and Challenger 650 aircraft. The CL350 builds on the legacy of the Challenger 300 series of aircraft. With a true seats full, tanks full, 3,200 nm range and steep approach certification, the jet can connect Aspen to New York non-stop. The enhanced short-field performance ability of the Challenger 350 aircraft also allows for access to challenging airfields such as Santa Monica.
