Bombardier Challenger 350 Aircraft Completes Steep Approach Certification Flight Test Campaign

Bombardier's Challenger 350 aircraft is progressing towards steep approach certification, allowing operators to perform landings under strict conditions, including the steep 5.5-degree approach angle and short runway of London City Airport.

 The aircraft recently completed its steep approach certification flight test campaign, and also performed several takeoffs and landings at the London City Airport to demonstrate this operational capability. Final certification is expected later this year.

"The Challenger 350 aircraft's proven high performance and superior in-flight experience have made it the undeniable market leader in its segment," said Peter Likoray, Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Bombardier Business Aircraft. "With its upcoming steep approach certification, the Challenger 350 jet is cementing its leadership position and will offer the most flexibility to our discerning clientele."

The Challenger 350 aircraft can climb quickly and directly to 43,000 feet (13,106 metres) allowing passengers to reach their destination more efficiently.

Existing Challenger 350 customers will be able to install the steep approach capability as a retrofit option in Bombardier's extensive network of service centres.
