This week, I had the pleasure of viewing the new Bombardier Challenger 350 when it touched down on July 7 at Santa Monica Airport, one of its stops on a visit to multiple California airports.

The Challenger 350 offers a host of impressive new advances and features in the midsize business jet category. Among the significant improvements is a more effective wing design with redesigned winglets that combines to boost aircraft range and fuel efficiency. The non-stop range of the aircraft reaches 3,200 nautical miles and expands the “full-load” range capability significantly. The new Honeywell engine, capable of greater performance and more thrust, provides a faster ascent. The cabin has been completely redesigned with innovations in seating, ergonomic side-ledge design, larger windows providing more natural light and improved viewing angles from the seats, and expanded storage and countertop upgrades in the galley.

The Challenger 350's California tour continues this week with stops in Central and Southern California on July 9th and 10th, according to the schedule below. Contact Bombardier marketing consultant Jenny Rogers at 949-274-0966 for an appointment to see the newest member of the Challenger family.
