Bombardier Intro's New Challenger 3500

Entry-Into-Service Is Expected In The Second Half Of 2022

Bombardier has confirmed the upcoming launch of the Challenger 3500 aircraft. The Challenger 3500 aircraft, the evolution of the Challenger 350 aircraft, introduces a redesigned interior with intelligent and sustainably minded cabin features. Bombardier’s Nuage seat is included in the aircraft’s standard configuration. The C-3500 will provide a reduced cabin altitude of 4,850 ft at 41,000 ft, representing a 31% improvement over its predecessor.

The Challenger 3500 aircraft also introduces a voice-controlled cabin to manage lighting, temperature and entertainment systems, wireless chargers throughout the cabin and a 24-inch, 4K display. In the cockpit, Bombardier introduces a standard-equipped autothrottle system to the Challenger 3500 flight deck. This new business jet is expected to enter service in the second half of 2022.

“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,” said Éric Martel, President and Chief Executive Officer, Bombardier. “Building on the success of the unrivalled Global 7500 business jet cabin, the Challenger 3500 aircraft prioritizes what our customers value most: a truly exceptional cabin experience.”

The latest Challenger aircraft was also designed through a sustainable lens. Following Bombardier’s recent groundwork on making the Global 7500 aircraft the first business jet ever to receive an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD), the Challenger 3500 aircraft will be the first business jet in the super mid-size segment to have an EPD.

Another sustainable initiative is the introduction of the first eco app solution in business aviation. The eco app is developed by SITA, a leading specialist in air transport communications and information technology, using its existing eWAS Pilot with OptiFlight solution.

In line with Bombardier’s environmental objectives, the Challenger 3500 flight test program is using a sustainability approach designed by World Fuel Services. The solution removes 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.
