Bombardier keeps faith with Safe Flight auto throttle
Thursday, 21 October 2021
Safe Flight's AutoPower automatic throttle system extends the capability of the Challenger 3500's flight guidance and automatic flight control systems.

Safe Flight Instrument's AutoPower automatic throttle system will be fitted as standard on the Bombardier Challenger 3500 aircraft.

It will extend the capability of the flight guidance and automatic flight control systems, providing accurate, responsive and dependable speed and thrust management from takeoff to touchdown. The AutoPower ATS achieves this through seamless integration with the PFD/MFD's envelope protection, and its ability to use planned VNAV/speed profiles from the FMS and continued system availability in single engine operation or other emergency situations.

Bombardier and Safe Flight have collaborated previously on certified programmes including the Challenger 650 aircraft. Initial production deliveries and entry into service are expected by the second half of 2022.

“We are thrilled with the enhanced cockpit experience Safe Flight's system brings to our newly launched Challenger 3500 aircraft,” says Peter Likoray, senior vice president, sales, Bombardier.
