Bombardier Challenger 300

    Bombardier invested two years of market research into the design of this airplane, and industry experts agree that the effort paid off. The fuel-efficient aircraft can fly from the West Coast to the East Coast in less than five hours. The double-club cabin arrangement provides ample seating for eight with room to recline. Ergonomic worktables, power outlets, and telephones ensure that time aloft can be spent productively. The design also aims to deliver robust reliability and low operating costs. The jet’s integrated troubleshooting software system provides detailed instructions to mechanics to minimize maintenance downtime.
