Bombardier reveals the super-midsize Challenger 3500


Bombardier has unveiled the Challenger 3500 super-midsize business jet, an evolution of the Challenger 350 with a redesigned interior, expected to enter service in the second half of 2022.

In terms of new technological features, compared to its predecessor, the Challenger 3500 has a reduced cabin altitude of 4,850ft at 41,000ft, representing a 31% improvement. The updated jet also introduces voice control for managing cabin lighting, temperature and entertainment systems; wireless chargers throughout the cabin; and a 24in 4K IFE display. In the cockpit, Bombardier introduces a standard-equipped autothrottle system to the flight deck. Bombardier’s Nuage seat is included in the aircraft’s standard configuration.

“We are thrilled to launch a business jet that features all the best-selling elements of the Challenger platform – impressive performance, consistent reliability, exceptional smooth ride – while elevating the cabin experience for our customers,” said Éric Martel, president and CEO of Bombardier. “Building on the success of the unrivalled Global 7500 business jet cabin, the Challenger 3500 aircraft prioritises what our customers value most: a truly exceptional cabin experience.”

Bombardier’s suppliers include FACC, which manufactures the cabinets and other key cabin components for the Challenger 3500, such as the sidewalls, headliners, bulkheads and passenger service units (PSUs). Bombardier also gives the option for customers to choose from a selection of sustainable materials for the cabin.
