Bombardier's latest Challenger features autothrottle as standard
Thursday, 16 September 2021
The latest incarnation of the Challenger 350 is known as the 3500. It will feature a host of new creature comforts for passengers and some interesting features for pilots.

Bombardier has updated its model line-up with the ‘sustainably designed’ Challenger 3500. Bombardier's patented Nuage seats are included in the standard configuration and it provides a reduced cabin altitude at 41,000ft, to 4,850ft, which is a 31% improvement on its predecessor, the Challenger 350.

The Challenger 3500 has introduced a voice controlled cabin to manage lighting, temperature and entertainment systems; wireless chargers throughout the cabin and a 24-inch 4K display. Bombardier has introduced a standard equipped autothrottle system to the flight deck. The new model is expected to enter service in the second half of 2022.

The test program for the Challenger 3500 will use a sustainability approach designed by World Fuel Services. The solution aims to remove some of the carbon emissions from the fuel of the test flights by using book-and-claim sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) purchases and then attains carbon neutrality by retiring offsets to balance the remaining carbon emissions from the jet fuel.

"We are thrilled to launch a business jet that features all the best-selling elements of the Challenger platform; impressive performance, consistent reliability, exceptional smooth ride while elevating the cabin experience for our customers," says Eric Martel, President and Chief Executive Officer, Bombardier. "Building on the success of the unrivalled Global 7500 business jet cabin, the Challenger 3500 aircraft prioritises what our customers value most, a truly exceptional cabin experience."
