becoming the best-selling business jet platform of the last decade is no small achievement. it takes an aircraft so superior and unmatched in excellence, that only bombardier’s challenger 350 possesses the title. meticulously designed with a ‘no-compromise’ approach, expertly engineered to the heights of performance ability, and built with superior craftsmanship by a team of dedicated artisans, the challenger 350 is the total package.
the challenger 350 is the best-selling business jet platform of the last decade
on-board bombardier’s challenger 350, every detail of the aircraft has been meticulously selected and thoughtfully designed to shape a truly unrivaled private jet experience.
multiple floor plans can accommodate up to 10 passengers in hand-sculpted seats that swivel, track, and recline. wood and stone flooring welcomes passengers into a luxurious, spacious setting that mirrors the world-class interior design they might find in a residential space, or within their own home. signature metal trim and clever foldout tables define the styling of the cabin experience, while large windows, angled touch screens, and carefully selected finishes unearth a sense of luxury on-board — the perfect balance between aesthetics and ergonomics.
no other super midsize jet goes a full range of 3,200 nautical miles with full fuel and at full seat capacity
whether traveling for business or pleasure, passengers are treated to the comfort, performance and productivity tools emblematic of bombardier’s ‘exceptional by design’ philosophy — a mantra that defines the entire bombardier business aircraft family. ‘in the development of every aircraft, we make our products not only better, but also continue to align them,’ says tim fagan, head of industrial design at bombardier business aircraft. as the manager of design-related activities across the brand, fagan has also led the design and development of the recently entered into service global 7500 — the world’s largest, longest range business jet. ‘we’ve developed consistency across the cabin experience, so when you’re sitting in one aircraft and you move to another, it feels and looks the same.’
passengers can expect a smooth ride from takeoff to touchdown
this vision for bombardier business aircraft is manifested in a strong sense of intentional elegance on-board the challenger 350. cutting-edge technology is integrated throughout, and cabin control sits at passengers’ fingertips. information and entertainment can be seamlessly switched via bombardier’s exclusive cabin management system (CMS), ensuring that passengers can have a productive journey — whether they want to watch a movie on the largest, high-definition monitors in the field, or communicate with the office using air-to-ground technologies that connect to the world below. meanwhile, crystal-clear sound comes to life through integrated sidewall speakers, exclusive to its class.
every aspect of the cabin has been carefully designed for an unrivaled private jet experience
just as fagan describes the global 7500 as an expression of tailored luxury, so too is the challenger 350, with its exceptional interiors artfully crafted at bombardier’s state of the art challenger building in montréal. a multidisciplinary team with expertise in areas like cabinet making and finishing, woodworking, upholstery, and painting work together on various aspects of the production and development of the aircraft, bringing the customer’s vision to life and making sure every detail is just right.
inside the cabin, the aircraft features bombardier’s signature metal trim and foldout tables throughout
after the purchase of a challenger 350, customers work alongside bombardier’s expert team of interior designers, who translate the clients’ vision into a business jet uniquely crafted to their own specifications. ‘a customer can come in with pictures of their own home, a color scheme they might like, or tones that inspire them,’ fagan continues, in speaking about the many styling options a customer can achieve. ‘they can propose materials and finishes to the design team’ fagan explains ‘it allows the customer to make the aircraft an expression of their personal taste.’
throughout the cabin, advanced technology is integrated into the carefully crafted interiors
when it’s time for customers to take their challenger 350 to the skies, this business aircraft doesn’t disappoint. whether flying from new york to london, paris to dubai or hong kong to mumbai, the challenger 350 goes a full 3,200 nautical mile range with full fuel at full passenger capacity. the total performance package, the challenger 350 aircraft climbs promptly and directly to 43,000 feet — reaching destinations quickly and efficiently while cruising above commercial traffic and weather. wing, engine and landing gear were developed in concert to ensure an optimally balanced design and smooth ride.
passengers can seamlessly switch between information and entertainment via the cabin management system
from takeoff to touchdown, the passenger experience on board the challenger 350 is unrivaled, with the private jet excelling in every department — from engineering to interior design. with bombardier’s ‘no-compromise’ approach evident throughout the design of the aircraft, it seems inevitable that the best-selling business jet of the last decade will reach even greater heights in the years to come.
