Bombardier Challenger 350

The Bombardier Challenger 350 is the improved variant of the Challenger 300, which first flew on March 2, 2013. It was unveiled at the next May EBACE and was due to enter service in May 2014. Hot-section modifications and a FADEC push gave the Honeywell HTF7350 7.3% more takeoff thrust at 7,323 lbf (32.57 kN) with the same flat rating, durability, and reliability, coupled with a strengthened wing with canted winglets and more span allowing for 900 lb (410 kg) more full fuel payload. Combined with a more luxurious interior with 20% taller cabin windows, it costs $1 million more at $25.9 million, its launch customer, NetJets, ordered 75 firms and 125 options.

The Bombardier Challenger 350 received its type certification from Transport Canada on June 11, 2014, from the FAA on June 25, and from the EASA on September 2. Canted winglets have a less acute angle that reduces transonic drag and enlarges the span by 5.2 ft (1.6 m), increasing wing area and aspect ratio. At a weight of 30,200 lb (13,700 kg), it cruises at Mach 0.80 / 455 kn (843 km/h) TAS and is advertised as burning 1,535 lb (696 kg) per hour. Bombardier maintenance program runs $277 per hour and inspection intervals are at 600 hr.

The avionics include four Adaptive LCD Displays, Dual FMS with LPV and RNP approaches capability, SVS, a MultiScan, Weather Radar, Dual IRS, dual SBAS GPS, integrated EFIS, and dual VHF and HF radios. It is able to carry eight passengers over a 3,200 nmi / 5,926 km range at a Mach 0.80 (459 kn, 849 km/h) long-range cruise. It is manufactured in Canada.
