Dallas-based Bombardier Flexjet announced at the end of April that it had added the new Challenger 605 to its fractional fleet. Five Challenger 605s are among 24 new aircraft scheduled to enter service with Flexjet this year. Other new arrivals will include the super-midsize Challenger 300 and midsize Learjet 60XR. Meanwhile, Bombardier Aerospace announced May 12 that its forthcoming all-composite Learjet 85 will be powered by a pair of Pratt & Whitney Canada PW307B engines. The 6,000-pound-thrust-class powerplant is the newest variant in the PW300 series.
