CL350 gets the nod for steep approaches
It has been a busy summer for Bombardier; as well as approval for steep approaches on the CL350 it has introduced the first Premier Cabin Global 5000 for European charter work with TAG.

Bombardier's Challenger 350 has received steep approach certification from Transport Canada, enabling it to land at difficult-to-access hubs including London City airport, which requires a 5.5 degree approach.

EASA and FAA certification is expected to follow later this year. A Rockwell Collins head-up display (HUD) and an enhanced vision system (EVS) are now available as options on the type.

Bombardier has also been working alongside TAG Aviation to introduce the first Global 5000 equipped with a Premier Cabin for charter service in Europe. The aircraft will be based in Paris. The Premier interior, inspired by the Global 7500's cabin, was introduced on the Global 5000 and 6000 last year. The Global 5000 can connect Geneva to Miami and London to Seoul non-stop at a cruise speed of Mach 0.85, and is already certified for steep approaches, including London City.
