Bombardier Challenger 350

Engineers evolved the Challenger 300 into a new model with improved avionics, more-powerful engines, new winglets and nicer cabin amenities. They also boosted maximum weights by up to 1,750 lb. and increased spec basic operating weight to a realistic level basedupon typical customer options.

The result is the Challenger 350. The Challenger 350 Business Jet is reaching new heights. Ground-breaking cabin design, longer range and lowest direct operating costs, carrying eight passengers for 3,200 nautical miles non-stop at a cruise speed of Mach 0.80. With it’s two newly defined Honeywell HTF7350 engines, it now has the fastest time-to-climb in business aviation. It can climb directly to 43,000 feet, thus saving fuel and avoiding bad weather and traffic.

The Challenger 350’s pair of composite canted winglets is one of the most obvious modifications to the aircraft, which increase aspect ratio and overall wing area. This enables the new aircraft to climb higher and cruise more efficiently in spite of its greater weight. Overall, the main wing is retained with few changes.

The main cabin seating area is 16.5 ft. long and noticeably brighter due to the larger cabin windows. The standard interior configuration accommodates nine passengers — eight in forward and aft four-chair club seating groups, plus another on the belted aft lavatory seat. A three-place divan is optional in place of the left rear-facing club chairs, increasing seating capacity to 10 passengers. The galley has a full-length, solid countertop. A wet sink, occasional-use cabin attendant seat, and gasper-cooled food compartment are optional.

Standard cabin equipment includes a long list of cabin entertainment systems and accessories for personal devices and passenger convenience. An Iridium Satcom phone is standard, and internet connectivity/wireless streaming are available options.
