Challenger 300 / Continental

In 2002 Bombardier changed the name of the Continental, then under development, to the Challenger 300. It would become part of the company's family of large business jets. The Challenger series included the Challenger 300, the Challenger 604 and the Challenger 800. The Challenger 604 already existed under that name. The Challenger 800 was the CRJ-SE, a special edition Canadair Regional Jet that could be configured as a business jet.

Built on the bestselling platform in business aviation, Bombardiers Challenger family of aircraft continues to create the standard for all around value with outstanding comfort, proven efficiency and reliability, and enhanced performance competencies. Millions of accumulated in-flight hours have served to establish the Challenger family of aircraft as the backbone and first choice of esteemed fleets worldwide. Consistently exceeding executives business needs, and providing our customers with advanced levels of connectivity and control, Challenger aircraft make excellent business sense.

Through groundbreaking advances in ergonomics and aesthetics, the Challenger 350 aircraft redefines comfort in the ultimate cabin experience. With its unique combination of visionary insight and a gathered intelligence providing a clear view of executive needs both now and for the future. Bombardier created an entirely new cabin design, built on the rock-solid foundation of the platforms class-leading wide body, flat floor, and stand-up height. The result is more than remarkable, and as intended from the START, now resets the standard for comfort, convenience and executive productivity.

The completely redesigned cabin of the Challenger 350 aircraft presents executives with the optimal user experience. The new interior, with its revolutionary ergonomic side-ledge design, new environmental and media control interface, redesigned seats and modular galley concept, offers more complete comfort, convenience, and advanced communications capabilities than ever previously presented in a super-midsize executive aircraft. Windows a full 2 inches (5 cm) taller provide not only more natural light, but improved viewing angles from each of the newly-designed seats, capable of reclining 180 to a full lie-flat position for greater sleeping comfort.

Passenger Service units reaffirm the designers commitment to a cleaner, more spacious feel. An industry-first and showcase feature of the Challenger 350 aircraft interior, lines of real metal, flow throughout the cabin dcor completing the statement of refined craftsmanship and quality.

Modern, modular, and masterfully appointed, the new galley concept offers unprecedented storage and countertop potential, and the opportunity for customers to choose the configuration that best responds to their particular catering needs, from simple snacks and refreshments, to preparation of more complete meals for a full complement of passengers and crew.

The newly evolved Honeywell Htf7350 engine provides more thrust while delivering the same fuel efficiency, and with its new combustor design, significantly lowers emissions. With the resulting power, the Challenger 350 aircraft climbs quickly to a more fuel-efficient 43,000 ft (13,106 m) initial Cruise Altitude (iCA). With over 1.5 million hours in service, the engine program has exceeded all expectations for reliability, durability and maintainability, most notably, as the series originally designed for the super-midsize class originator, the Challenger 300 aircraft.

With close to 400 deliveries in 10 years, flawless execution, and 100% on-time delivery to customers 3 years running, the Challenger 350 aircraft is built upon what is unquestionably todays most widely acclaimed and successful business aviation platform, trusted by many of the worlds largest fleet operators. Superior hot and high capabilities continue as a trademark of the Challenger 350 aircraft, inheriting unsurpassed dependability in the worlds most challenging conditions.
