Bombardier has launched an improved development of its Challenger 300 super midsize corporate jet, the Challenger 350, which will feature more powerful 7,323lb Honeywell HTF7350 engines, advanced avionics and a new cabin interior.
Announced at the EBACE business aviation show in Geneva on Monday, deliveries of the new US$25.8 million jet will begin in 2014, with fractional ownership company NetJets to be the aircraft’s “worldwide launch partner”.
As well as the new engines, the Challenger 650 will feature canted winglets, a new cabin interior including larger cabin windows and Lufthansa Technik’s HD cabin management system, and a Rockwell Collins Pro Line 21 Advanced avionics system featuring synthetic vision.
Planned performance includes a range with eight passengers of 3,200nm (5,926km) and direct climb to 43,000ft.
