Bombardier’s 200th Challenger 605 Jet Enters Service

Bombardier’s Challenger program has reached a significant milestone with the entry-into-service of the 200th Challenger 605 business jet. The aircraft was handed over to its new owner (who wishes to remain anonymous) during a special ceremony at the Challenger facility in Dorval, Québec, in October 2012, with hundreds of proud employees in attendance.

The Challenger program first took flight on November 8, 1978, when the Challenger 600 aircraft lifted off from Canadair’s plant in Saint-Laurent, Québec. The Challenger 601 and Challenger 604 aircraft variants followed, and in the 34 years since, continuous development and innovation have ensured that the Challenger 605 business jet remains a market leader and a customer favorite.

Challenger 605 jet: The Challenger 605 jet builds on the quality and reliability of its predecessor, the acclaimed Challenger 604 aircraftleading its market share segment throughout the world. The Challenger 605 jet can whisk twelve passengers and three crew from New York City to London non-stop* in the widest stand-up cabin of any large category business jet available today. There are over 850 Challenger 600 jets in service worldwide, including 200Challenger 605 jets, accounting for over 50 per cent market share worldwide for its segment category.
