Bombardier’s new Challenger 350 aircraft has been awarded certification by the Canadian aviation authority, Transport Canada. The new 10-seat business jet, which is set to compete with the Dassault 2000S and Gulfstream’s G280, is fitted with twin Honeywell HTF7350 engines, each producing 7,323lbs of thrust, and has canted winglets to improve aerodynamics. The result, according to Bombardier, is “industry leading time-to-climb” and a range of 5,926km. The business jet manufacturer says it expects to receive certification from the FAA shortly, after which it will begin to deliveries of the Challenger 350. Its order book includes a deal for 75 craft to US fractional company NetJets.
