Bombardier has received certification from the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for its Challenger 350 business aircraft.

"FAA certification for the Challenger 350 aircraft is another key step on the path to entry-into-service," said Stephane Leblanc, Vice President and General Manager, Challenger Programs, Bombardier Business Aircraft. "Designed with the feedback from existing Challenger aircraft owners and operators, this new aircraft will meet their ever-growing needs. We are looking forward to delivering this segment leading aircraft and are confident that our customers will love it."

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

This increased power will allow place more destinations within reach. With a true seats full, tanks full, 3,200 nm (5,926 km) range, it will connect Paris with Dubai.

With a flat floor and one of the widest purpose-built super-midsize cabins, 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 an advanced side ledge that givies you control at your fingertips.

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.

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