Bombardier has announced that deliveries of its best-selling Challenger 350 business jet continue to dominate the super midsize segment and the Medium aircraft category in 2017, according to the annual shipment and billings report published by the General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA). Bombardier delivered 56 Challenger 350 aircraft in 2017, capturing 53 percent of the super midsize segment.
“Thanks to their exceptional cabin comfort, connectivity, reliable performance and ultra-smooth ride, our Challenger 350 business jets continue to lead the market in unit sales and have earned their place as the leading choice among experienced flight departments and charter operators,” said Peter Likoray, Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Bombardier Business Aircraft. “The result extends a remarkable record for our Challenger 350 aircraft program, which has tallied more deliveries in the last decade than any other business jet platform.”
The Challenger 350 aircraft, which entered service in 2014, has maintained a brisk pace of deliveries in its first years of production, surpassing the 200-delivery mark in 2017.
Exceptional ride quality is an important component of the aircraft’s success, and the Challenger 350 business jet features a smooth and quiet ride that elevates its widely-praised cabin experience to the next level. The aircraft’s optimally-balanced wing, engine and landing gear were designed to provide an exceptionally smooth ride, from takeoff to landing. At the same time, its cabin is optimized with state-of-the-art acoustical insulation that delivers sound levels that are among the lowest in the super midsize segment.
