Florida-based charter and management company Elite Air has added two brand new Challenger 3500 aircraft to its expanding fleet, bringing its customers the most advanced super-midsize business jet Bombardier offers today.

The Challenger 3500 is equipped with the most advanced avionics and safety features and these two aircraft will be operated by a highly skilled and experienced team of pilots who prioritise passenger safety above all else. Elite Air's commitment to excellence and stringent maintenance protocols ensure that the Challenger 3500s will be maintained to the highest standards, guaranteeing a safe and reliable travel experience.

"Adding these two Challenger 3500s to the fleet is a testament to Elite Air's dedication to delivering exceptional service and expanding our offerings to meet the growing demands of our clients," says president AJ Becker. "Whether you're a business executive in need of efficient transportation or a leisure traveller looking for a luxurious and comfortable journey, Elite Air is committed to providing you with an unparalleled private jet experience."

The new-off-the-line C3500s are configured to comfortably seat nine passengers and are based in Central Florida, one at Orlando International airport and available for charter immediately, the other at Orlando Executive that will be charterable for flights in 2024 and beyond.

“We are incredibly fortunate to be able to manage and charter new aircraft like these beautiful C3500s,” says CEO Gray Gibbs “We can’t wait for our customers to experience them.”

Elite Air has managed and chartered Challenger aircraft at nearly every iteration since the 2000s. The Challenger 3500 is renowned for its impressive performance, spacious cabin, and advanced technology. With a range of over 3,200 nautical miles, these jets can effortlessly traverse long distances, making them ideal for both domestic and international travel.

“Challengers have been a mainstay of our fleet for almost two decades for good reason; they are the perfect jet for owners looking for comfort, practicality, and charterability,” says president AJ Becker.
