Bombardier's Challenger 350 aircraft has been awarded Transport Canada (TC) Certification.

Building upon the Challenger 300 jet, the Challenger 350 aircraft offers increased performance from the new twin Honeywell HTF7350 engines, each producing 7,323 lbf (33 kN) of thrust and reduced emissions and increased aerodynamic efficiency with its new canted winglets. 

"With Transport Canada certification of the Challenger 350 aircraft program in-hand, another significant milestone has been achieved," said Stephane Leblanc, Vice-President and General Manager, Challenger Programs, Bombardier Business Aircraft. "Featuring a groundbreaking cabin design, new range capability and lowest-in-class operating costs, no opportunity has been overlooked to improve on the platform's segment-leading excellence. With increased performance, definitive reliability and unmatched value, the Challenger 350 aircraft has a strong future and we are confident that it will earn the appreciation of executives, pilots and operators around the world."

With a flat floor and 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.

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 a sideledge giving you control at your fingertips, a first in business aviation cabin interior design.

The Challenger 350 aircraft's cockpit will be 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.

Bombardier is expecting to receive certification from the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) shortly.
