Challenger 350 gains Transport Canada steep approach certification

Posted 17 July 2018 · Add Comment

Bombardier's Challenger 350 aircraft has achieved Transport Canada steep approach certification, allowing operators to perform landings under strict conditions, including at the steep 5.5-degree approach angle and on the short runway of London City Airport.



Both EASA and FAA steep approach certification are expected this year.

Earlier this year, the aircraft completed its steep approach certification flight test campaign, and also performed several takeoffs and landings at London City Airport to demonstrate this operational capability. With its balanced design, the Challenger 350 aircraft offers customers a smooth ride and the opportunity to reach their chosen destination quickly and efficiently. 

“This truly is a major milestone for the Challenger 350 program,” said Peter Likoray, Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Bombardier Business Aircraft. “The Challenger 350 aircraft’s proven high performance and superior in-flight experience have made it the undeniable market leader in its segment. This milestone continues to cement the Challenger 350 jet as the industry leader, offering the most flexibility to our discerning clientele.”

The Challenger 350 jet is truly a leader in its class, and the new certification continues to set it apart from the competiton. 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. The aircraft is universally valued for its outstanding short-field performance, climbing quickly and efficiently to an altitude of 43,000 feet (13,106 metres) in 20 minutes. This quick ascent enables passengers to reach their destination more effectively.

Bombardier recently announced it will offer Head-up Display (HUD) and Enhanced Vision System (EVS) as an option on its best-selling Challenger 350 business jets. The HUD and EVS will complement the Challenger 350 aircraft’s superior baseline offering. 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.

The Challenger 350 aircraft also boasts a world-class design and offers premium comfort. Its state-of-the-art acoustical insulation allows passengers to enjoy a restful flight with interior sound levels that are among the lowest in the super mid-size segment. The aircraft’s wide and sleek cabin, along with industry-leading connectivity, ensure that passengers benefit from the ultimate business jet experience.

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