    “This next generation of an already very successful Challenger 300 product line features well-thought-out enhancements. The fact that NetJets and Flexjet have made the Challenger 350 a major portion of their fleet upgrades speaks to the capabilities and strengths of the aircraft.” —H. Lee Rohde III

    “Since its inception in the early 2000s, the Challenger has been a category leader. It has a great cabin and excellent speed, runway performance, and range for its class.” —Kevin O’Leary

    “Great cabin, performance, and operating economics for the price.” —William Quinn Jr.

    • Compared to its predecessor—the Challenger 300—this jet features improved avionics, more powerful engines, winglets that enhance fuel efficiency, and a more comfortable cabin. 
    • The Challenger 350’s range and cruising speed enable it to fly eight people from New York to London in a little over 6.5 hours.
    • The cabin can be configured to accommodate eight to 10 passengers, and it is furnished with seats that recline fully. 
    • The cabin’s entertainment and communications system includes two 22-inch monitors attached to the bulkheads and ports for syncing the system with laptops and phones. 
    • Bombardier delivered 68 examples of the Challenger 350 in 2015, making it the year’s second most-delivered business jet.
