GENEVA, Switzerland—Montreal-based plane maker Bombardier Aerospace is expanding its Challenger family of business jets, with the introduction of the new Challenger 350 model.
“The Challenger 350 jet will take our existing Challenger family to new heights,” Bombardier business aircraft president Steve Ridolfi said in a statement.
The eight-passenger jet will be able to ascend up to 43,000 ft., according to Bombardier, with a range of 5,926 kilometres.
The Challenger 350 jet will be powered by new twin Honeywell HTF7350 engines.
Deliveries of the aircraft are expected to begin in 2014.
