Its backlog continues to grow, reaching approximately $14.3 billion as of September 30, 2018.
The performance update was made in conjunction with the annual National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) convention in Orlando, Florida, where the company is displaying its newly certified Global 7500 jet, Global 6000 aircraft, Challenger 350 and Challenger 650 jets, and the Learjet 75 aircraft.
“This quarter’s delivery and backlog performance is a true reflection of the breadth and quality of Bombardier’s second-to-none aircraft portfolio,” said David Coleal, President, Bombardier Business Aircraft. “Our Global jets top the industry in range, size and smooth ride, our Challengers are best-selling and our Learjet aircraft have the best performance in the light category.
“We are seeing strong demand for our Global aircraft family rivalled only by the continued strong performance of our Challenger franchise, which we estimate outperformed each competitors’ medium-category deliveries by a ratio of 5 to 1 or higher in the third quarter,” Coleal added.
