Bombardier Business Aircraft has achieved a milestone by delivering its 300th super-midsize Challenger 350 just five years after its entry into service, the Canadian airframer announced today.
“The delivery of the 300th Challenger 350 business jet in only five years after its entry-into-service represents another exciting milestone for Bombardier and underscores the trust our customers place in this industry-leading aircraft,” said Peter Likoray, Bombardier Business Aircraft senior v-p of worldwide sales and marketing.
Announced at EBACE in May 2013 and certified in June 2014, the Challenger 350 is powered by two Honeywell HTF7350s, each with 7,323 pounds of thrust, has a high-speed cruise of 0.82 Mach, and can fly 3,200 nm with NBAA IFR reserves.
