Bombardier’s Challenger 350 aircraft was the most-delivered medium category business jet in 2020, according to General Aviation Manufacturers Association’s annual shipment and billings report. This makes the Challenger 350 the medium category leader for a seventh consecutive year.

General Aviation Manufacturers Association’s (GAMA) report also shows Bombardier outpaced its competitors by delivering 44 aircraft in the fourth quarter of 2020. This accomplishment, notes Bombardier, was driven by a record 16 Global 7500 business jet deliveries in that timeframe.

In 2020, Bombardier announced a firm order for 10 Challenger 350 aircraft in a transaction valued at US$267 million and also marked the 350th delivery of the Challenger 350 business jet, a milestone reached after only seven years in service.

Bombardier explains the Challenger 350 aircraft now features an expanded selection of sophisticated and contemporary interior design schemes, high-speed Viasat Ka-band connectivity and a refreshed cabin management system, inspired by the Global 7500.
