Challenger 350Bombardier Aerospace has received Transport Canada (TC) full-type certification for its Challenger 350 aircraft, opening the way for the jet's entry-into-service.

The Challenger 350 airliner was launched in 2013 at the European Business Aviation Conference and Exhibition (EBACE) in Switzerland.

Bombardier Business Aircraft Challenger programmes vice-president and general manager Stéphane Leblanc said: "With Transport Canada certification of the  aircraft programme in-hand, another significant milestone has been achieved.

"With increased performance, definitive reliability and unmatched value, the Challenger 350 aircraft has a strong future and we are confident that it will earn the appreciation of executives, pilots and operators around the world."

Powered by the twin Honeywell HTF7350 engines, the Challenger 350 is claimed to offer increased performance and aerodynamic efficiency with its new canted winglets, which will allow faster time to climb.

The aircraft is said to incorporate excellent cabin design, new range capability and offer lowest-in-class operating costs.

It features Lufthansa Technik's next-generation HD cabin management system and cockpit equipped with Rockwell Collins Pro Line 21 advanced avionics system.

Avionics include synthetic vision, dual inertial reference systems, a paperless capable cockpit and MultiScan Weather.

The Challenger 350 is currently under development, and its design and design tolerances are subject to certification.

Bombardier expects to receive US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certification for the aircraft shortly.
