Bombardier's Challenger 350 to gain steep approach certification

Posted 7 March 2018 · Add Comment

Bombardier has announced that its 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.”

As the only super mid-size aircraft that can fly full range at full fuel with full seat capacity, the Challenger 350 aircraft offers the luxury of having it all. Valued for its outstanding short-field performance, the aircraft climbs quickly and directly to 43,000 feet (13,106 metres) allowing passengers to reach their destination more efficiently. With the industry’s best weather radar system and the best-equipped cockpit in its class, the Challenger 350 aircraft boasts leading-edge technology and is ready to meet current and future navigational requirements.

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.
