Bombardier is adding a new suite of enhancements to its Challenger 350. “The Challenger 350 aircraft stays on top because it's the best, and these new features set this business jet even further apart from competitors,” states Peter Likoray, senior VP of worldwide sales and marketing. “Customers prefer this aircraft because it offers performance without compromise and a cabin experience you can't find anywhere else in this category.”
Bombardier recently marked the 350th delivery of the Challenger 350 business jet, a milestone reached after only six years in service. The OEM is introducing high-speed Viasat Ka-band connectivity aboard the CL350 for an enhanced internet experience over business aviation's most popular routes and regions. With service packages offering the fastest available download speeds in the super midsize segment, passengers can enjoy improved productivity and cabin experience, whether videoconferencing or streaming. This offer will be available on new and in-service Challenger 350 aircraft, as well as on all in-service Challenger 300 series aircraft.
Bombardier is also refreshing the user interface for the CMS on the CL350, taking inspiration from the design of its flagship Global 7500 aircraft to deliver a modern user experience via side ledge touchscreens and a new, platform-specific app. This new design also integrates moving maps. Customers will also have an expanded cabin design selection thanks to a collection of contemporary interior design schemes.
Bombardier has made several other recent enhancements to the Challenger 350 aircraft, including cabin sound-proofing technology, refined cockpit aesthetics and an available Head-up Display (HUD) and Enhanced Vision System (EVS). A performance improvement package allows the aircraft to fly up to 1,500 nm farther than before out of short runways.
With a true, seats full, tanks full, 3,200 nm range, the Challenger 350 can connect New York to London or Paris to Dubai non-stop.
