The Challenger 3500 aircraft introduces a redesigned interior with intelligent and sustainably minded cabin features crafted to combine comfort with function. Further elevating the passenger experience, Bombardier’s exclusive and patented Nuage seat is included in the aircraft’s standard configuration, the first time a seat of this calibre is available in the segment. As part of an overall focus on passenger wellness, this new business jet will provide a reduced cabin altitude of 4,850 ft at 41,000 ft, representing a 31% improvement compared to its predecessor.

The Challenger 3500 aircraft also introduces several innovative technological features, such as the industry’s first voice controlled cabin to manage lighting, temperature and entertainment systems, the first wireless chargers throughout the cabin and the only 24 inch, 4K display in its class. In the cockpit, Bombardier introduces a standard equipped autothrottle system to the Challenger 3500 flight deck, which offers the most baseline features in its class. This new business jet is expected to enter service in the second half of 2022.

The latest Challenger aircraft was also designed through a sustainable lens. Following Bombardier’s recent groundwork on making the Global 7500 aircraft the first business jet ever to receive an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD), the Challenger 3500 aircraft will be the first business jet in the segment to have an EPD. In addition to this important declaration of the aircraft’s life cycle environmental footprint, other environmentally conscious initiatives include the option for customers to choose from a selection of high end sustainable materials for the cabin.

An advanced wing design, refined aerodynamics and a pilot centric avionics suite deliver an exceptionally smooth ride from takeoff to touchdown. With dispatch reliability of over 99.8% and the lowest direct operating costs in its class, the Challenger 3500 aircraft offers peace of mind at an unbeatable value 365 days a year. Bombardier Challenger 3500 aircraft provides the ultimate combination of range, speed, field performance and reliability.
