Bombardier's Challenger 350 aircraft has received full type certification from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA).

Building upon the Challenger 300 jet, the Challenger 350 aircraft delivers greater performance from the new twin Honeywell HTF7350 engines, each producing 7,323 lbf (33 kN) of thrust and reduced emissions, which allows faster time to climb over inclement weather and traffic.

 In addition, the aircraft benefits from increased aerodynamic efficiency with its new canted winglets, ultimately placing more destinations within reach.

The Challenger 350 jet's class-defining performance, true seats full, tanks full, 3,200 nm (5,926 km) range will connect Paris with Dubai.

"Our Challenger 350 aircraft successfully entered into service this past June and made its European debut at the Farnborough airshow in July. With certification now in-hand, we are eager to start delivering EASA-registered units to our customers," said Eric Martel, President, Bombardier Business Aircraft. "We have very strong demand for this aircraft and customers who are already operating it are delighted with its increased performance and new cabin design."

 With a flat floor and a wide purpose-built super-midsize cabin, the Challenger 350 jet features an entirely new interior, that lets even more natural light into the cabin with larger windows, resulting in state-of-the-art cabin comfort, technology and productivity.

Featuring Lufthansa Technik's next generation nice HD cabin management system, the cabin includes a complete redesign of the way passengers control the cabin environment, complemented by contemporary seat design, a new modular galley and the industry's most advanced side ledge giving you control at your fingertips, a first inbusiness aviation cabin interior design.

The Challenger 350 aircraft's cockpit is equipped with Rockwell Collins Pro Line 21 Advanced avionics system. Features of the new avionics include, among others, synthetic vision, dual inertial reference systems, a paperless capable cockpit and MultiScan Weather Radar. The forward-thinking avionics are designed to shift the workload away from busy pilots, allowing for increased situational awareness.

Bombardier's extensive European support network is anchored by a Regional Support Office in Farnborough, UK, a Parts Distribution Hub in Frankfurt, Germany and a Service Centre in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

 In preparation for a smooth entry-into-service, Bombardier has reconfigured a flight training device and Level D full-flight simulator at its aircraft training centre in Dallas, Texas.
