BOMBARDIER NEW CHALLENGER 3500 LAUNCHED
Bombardier has introduced its new Challenger 3500, the evolution of the Challenger 350, in an exclusive celebration in Montréal and through a worldwide virtual launch.
With the next-generation Challenger 3500, Bombardier introduces a redesigned interior with intelligent and sustainably-minded cabin features crafted to combine comfort with function. The aircraft offers Bombardier’s patented Nuage seat in the standard configuration – the first time a seat of this calibre has been made available in the super mid-size 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 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, which offers the most baseline features in its class. This new business jet is expected to enter service in the second half of 2022.
Bombardier’s Global 7500 aircraft was the first business jet to receive an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD), and the Challenger 3500 aircraft will be the first business jet in the super mid-size segment to have an EPD.
