Bombardier announced today that it has received type certification for its Challenger 300 and Challenger 350 aircraft from the Unidad Administrativa Especial de Aviacion Civil of Colombia.
This new aircraft certification will strengthen the Challenger 300 and Challenger 350 aircraft's position as leaders in the growing fleet of super midsize business jets operating in the region. The Challenger 300 and Challenger 350 aircraft have increased performance, definitive reliability and unmatched value.
"Our Challenger aircraft portfolio is gaining strong momentum in Latin America," Stephane Leroy, regional vice President of Sales, Latin America, said. "Colombia being a growing market in the region, we are naturally proud of this certification milestone that will allow operators throughout the region to experience our Challenger aircraft and will allow us to generate further interest for these innovative and proven business jets."
The challenger 300 aircraft offers true transcontinental range and superior long-range cruise speed, with eight-to-10 passengers. Its 5,646-km range connects Toronto and Bogota non-stop, and its superior airfield performance allows the aircraft to operate out of 5,000-ft. runways.
The Challenger 350 aircraft, built upon the legendary segment-defining Challenger 300 aircraft, not only features the very latest in avionics, but also offers the segment's most advanced cabin that maximizes natural light and redefines the man-machine interface, all the while maintaining the performance attributes that have become synonymous with the Challenger family.
