Bombardier Challenger Jets Supreme comfort, robust size, and unwavering efficacy make the Challenger family an astute corporate asset
Renowned for their range, endurance, and cavernous interiors, Challenger jets are the essence of a ‘customer designed’ executive aircraft. Challengers offer some of the widest cabins available in the heavy jet category with ample space for up to 18 passengers. Each jet is fully loaded with all manner of creature comforts, ranging from deluxe wood-paneled bathrooms and galleys, to state-of-the-art entertainment systems and WIFI connectivity. Challenger jets are the culmination of decades of research, innovation, and technological advancement by Canadair and Bombardier Aerospace Division. Low operating costs compare favorably to those of an appreciably smaller jet. Tried, tested, and highly respected, the Challenger fleet’s airframe has clocked over six million hours of service.

An industry veteran, the acclaimed Challenger 300 set the bar for the super midsize category when it debuted at the Paris Air Show in 1991. A ‘clean sheet’ design, the Challenger 300 was crafted in direct response to consumer demands for coast-to-coast, non-stop comfort, and it shows. The spacious and sleek interior design marries style with functionality to produce the quintessential boardroom in the sky. The stand-up cabin—one of the quietest in its class
—has serious girth and can accommodate eight passengers with multiple configuration options, from high density seating to a custom workspace environment. In addition to its coveted short airfield take off capability and low altitude maneuverability, the Challenger 300 soars gracefully to an altitude of 41,000 feet and attains an impressive 3,100 nautical mile reach.
Built for serious globetrotting, the Challenger 601 heavy jet features the 300′s unusually wide fuselage (8.2 ft) enhanced with technological refinements, including an additional fuel tank that allows for a transcontinental range of 3,426 nautical miles. The improved design also incorporates drag decreasing winglets. Fitted with avant-garde amenities and electronics, the Challenger 601 represents an ideal choice for corporate executives keen to host high-altitude meetings in style.
The Challenger 604 is the best selling jet in its class, trumping its 601 precursor with impressive design modifications and advanced avionics at every turn. Perfectly suited to either short, medium, or long haul flights, the 604 is the definitive powerhouse jet wrapped up in a sleek and sophisticated design. It offers the widest cabin in its class, a superior noise insulation system, mahogany-paneled gallery, swanky bathrooms, deluxe seats that can be converted into four, full-size horizontal beds, and a large baggage compartment that can be accessed from inside the cabin. Serious engine upgrades, including saddle tanks, yield an increased fuel capacity that allows for a range of 3,800 nautical miles, at a maximum speed of 541 miles per hour.
Embodying 20 years of technical refinements, the Challenger 605 has become the standard bearer for the intercontinental corporate jet featuring new generation avionics—notably the Rockwell Collins Pro Line 21 avionics suite. Key advances over the Challenger 604 include a longer range (4,000 nautical miles), larger windows, and greater connectivity courtesy of an Iridium Satcom system. With a proven airframe and enhanced safety features, the Challenger 605 responds intuitively to the needs of both pilots and business leaders. Designed to provide optimum comfort, passengers can circulate freely through the Challenger family’s signature wide cabin replete with HD inflight entertainment systems.
Derived from the Bombardier CRJ200 airliner, the Challenger 850 is a true commercial airliner retrofitted for corporate private jet travel. With a transcontinental, non-stop range of 2,811 nautical miles, the 850 satisfies the needs of the most time-sensitive business agenda. The expansive, well conceived, interior fosters a highly productive working environment. The Challenger’s customary flat floor allows for a comfortable stand-up cabin and there is a full size lavatory (including a separate bathroom for cabin and crew), and a stylishly appointed galley replete with the requisite VIP touches that allow for gourmet dining or the creation of a custom work space.
