Aircraft History

The Challenger 350 is Bombardier's upgrade to the successful Challenger 300. At a premium of $1M over the 300, the significant updates include a new, wider wing that incorporates winglets; Honeywell HTF7350 engines providing approximately 500 additional pounds of thrust; and the advanced iteration of Rockwell Collins Pro Line 21 avionics suite.
 
The larger wing allows a higher maximum takeoff weight of 40,600 pounds and a new NBAA IFR range of 3,200 nautical miles. The Challenge 350 carries over the Challenger 300's 930-cubic-foot cabin volume and true double-club seating for eight passengers, but now offers updated interior appointments and larger cabin windows.
