Challenger 850

Bombardier Challenger 850 VIP Transport JetThe Challenger 850 is a large cabin, transcontinental jet designed and manufactured by Bombardier Aerospace.  The jet is derived from Bombardier’s CRJ200 50-seat airliner and as such features one of the most expansive cabins in its category.

Bombardier launched the Challenger 850 program in 2005.  In fact, two other programs were simultaneously launched.  The Challenger 870 and 890 programs were to develop executive jets from its 70-seat and 90-seat airliners respectively but only the Challenger 850 program was completed.

In creating the private jet from the 50-seat airliner, Bombardier incorporated numerous design changes to endow it with the flexibility and comfort of an executive jet.  Some of the performance-enhancing changes include a redesigned airframe, increased payload, greater takeoff weight, greater range, a computer-controlled fly-by-wire system, and more powerful engines.  The cockpit is large and superbly organized featuring Rockwell Collins Pro Line 4 avionics; renown for it technology, efficiency and productivity.   The Challenger 850 design retains an airliners durability and multiple layers of system redundancy so operators enjoy airliner-style mission reliability.

The cabin design team created one of the most productive and comfortable environments in which to work or relax.  The interiors of the roomy cabin are fully customizable with typical accommodations being for twelve to fourteen passengers.  Most feature multiple sections of club seating, divans, forward or rear placement of galley and lavatory, large wardrobe and an airborne office suite that features everything you need to run your business.

The Challenger 850 is perfect for the client who doesn’t require the range of the ultra long range jets, but who needs an executive cabin feel.
