Challenger 300

Bombardier’s Challenger 300 aircraft was the first in the super-midsize business jet category to challenge the standard with its clean sheet design.

After extensive research to achieve customers’ business goals, the aircraft was crafted for true U.S. coast-to-coast range and features unmatched room in which to conference and work.

The Challenger 300 aircraft holds five over-water and transcontinental U.S. records, but this aircraft does not rest on its laurels. It leads the super-midsize class in all-around economics, offering enduring value through its advanced onboard technology and efficiency.

Reliable achievement. Definitive intellect. Crafted with ingenuity and vision to stay ahead of tomorrow’s rapid corporate needs, this aircraft is unmistakably a Challenger.

Challenger 300 Design

From the smallest details to most major advances, no opportunity has been overlooked. Based on customer feedback and cutting-edge technology, the look, feel, sound, and productivity attributes of this business leader have all been taken one more step into the future. Designed by business for business, the cabin offers Satcom telephones, Airshow 410 in-flight mapping systems, seven (7) electrical outlets, two (2) 20″ widescreen LCD monitors, and a DVC/CD player. The Challenger 300 aircraft is also the first aircraft with integrated iPod control capability, also standard, and is equipped with its own iPod unit.

Challenger 300 Technology

The Challenger 300 aircraft’s Pro Line 21 Advanced avionics suite has business aviation’s most advanced flight management system and is equipped to maximize operational flexibility and reduce crew workload.

The fully integrated functions and technologies combine to further elevate situational awareness and operational efficiencies, and to appreciably raise aircraft value retention.

The Challenger 300 aircraft’s avionics suite is baseline equipped for the future with dual IRSs, LPV and other RNP approaches, and the groundbreaking MultiScan™ weather radar, the best radar technology currently available. Additionally, Bombardier is the only original equipment manufacturer in the class to include the Synthetic Vision System (SVS) as part of the baseline equipment.

The cockpit also provides new optional features for increased operational flexibility and efficiency, as well as compliance with upcoming NextGen and SESAR regulations (RNP AR 0.3, CPDLC, and ADS-C).

  • New baseline Synthetic Vision System, dual IRSs, and groundbreaking MultiScan™ weather radar
  • Traffic Collision Avoidance System (TCAS) to the latest enhanced safety standards
  • Enhanced situational awareness through integration of SVS, MultiScan™ weather radar, and terrain warning systems on integrated display
