L.J. Aviation, a flight management and charter aircraft company based in Latrobe, PA, has expanded its fleet with two Bombardier Challenger 350 aircraft, which join the company’s existing fleet of 40 aircraft. The Challenger 350 will be available for charter in the Mid-Atlantic States.

“[The Challenger 350] delivers everything we want in a business jet: outstanding performance, a comfortable and productive environment, and advantageous operating costs,” said Ed Kilkeary Jr., president, L.J. Aviation.

Within its existing fleet, L.J. Aviation currently manages and operates five Challenger 300 series business jets, one Challenger 604 aircraft and a Global 5000 aircraft.

Bombardier states, that over the past decade, the Challenger 300 aircraft series – fitting into the super mid-size segment – has accounted for more deliveries than any other business jet platform in the industry.


“This business jet is world-renowned as the leader in the super mid-size segment, and with good reason,” said Peter Likoray, senior vice president, worldwide sales and marketing, Bombardier Business Aircraft. “A stunning cabin, smooth ride and exceptional value proposition all make the Challenger 350 aircraft an ideal choice for customers.”

The Challenger 350 is rated for a 3,200 nautical-mile range. Founded in 1980, L.J. Aviation is headquartered in the L.J. Aviation FBO facility at Arnold Palmer Airport in Latrobe, PA. Its list of satellite bases includes operations and offices in Bedford, MA; Marshfield, WI; Rochester, NY; Pontiac, MI; and at Greater Pittsburgh International.
