A Super-Mid Favorite: Challenger 300
The Challenger 300, made by Canadian manufacturer Bombardier, delivers a large cabin aircraft with lower direct operating costs than anything else in the super midsize jet category. According to Bombardier, “the aircraft was crafted for true U.S. coast-to-coast range and features unmatched room in which to conference and work.” Customers rave about the cabin size. It is longer than a Challenger 604 and as wide as a Gulfstream IV for additional space and comfort.
When launching the concept in Paris in 1997, Bombardier revealed it had done unprecedented research into operator needs for a jet of this size. Initially called The Continental for it’s long range performance, it was renamed the Challenger 300 at NBAA 2002 and received its certification in 2003. To date, Bombardier has delivered more than 150 different models of aircraft.
An exceptional value, the Challenger 300 seats eight passengers and is equipped with state of the art entertainment systems. It can travel travel non-stop over 3,660 statute miles at a cruise speed of 528 mph.
The interior of the Challenger 300 has a wide, flat floor and enough height (6’1″) for most passengers to stand-up in the cabin, creating a comfortable and productive environment for passengers. The cabin also contains a galley perfect for snacks and light meal service, a state-of-the-art NICE® (Network Integrated Cabin Equipment) electronics system, a full lavatory, and other impressive features for conducting business such as satellite telephones, electrical outlets, two 20” widescreen LCD monitors, a DVD/CD player, and iPod unit that are all standard to the aircraft. This jet also has ample baggage space and in-flight access to a large internal baggage compartment.
