Challenger 605 Jets Join Flexjet Fleet

Bombardier Aerospace : 02 May, 2008  (New Product)
Bombardier Flexjet, the fractional business jet ownership program of Bombardier Aerospace, has announced the induction of Bombardier’s new Challenger 605 jets into the Flexjet fractional fleet.
“We are pleased to offer our customers the ultimate fractional jet ownership experience with the introduction of the Challenger 605 business jet, which provides superior wide-cabin comfort, technology, flexibility and productivity,” said Mike McQuay, president, Bombardier Flexjet. “This newly redesigned jet is tailored for Flexjet owners. It seats more passengers, features a cutting-edge information, communication and entertainment system and offers enhanced safety systems.”

The Challenger 605 jets are among 24 new aircraft scheduled to enter service with Flexjet in 2008. The additional new arrivals will include the best-selling, super-midsize Challenger 300 and the high-performance Learjet 60 XR. They will replace some of the aircraft currently in service. By replacing a large portion of its aircraft each year, Flexjet is able to maintain one of the youngest fleets of any fractional jet ownership company. Aircraft in the Flexjet fleet average 3.4 years in age.

“As a frequent traveler who often has family accompanying me on trips, safety is definitely a top priority,” said John Strelitz, a longtime Flexjet fractional jet owner. “Knowing that Flexjet has one of the youngest and most technologically-advanced fleet of aircraft gives me peace of mind.”

A digital, Ethernet-based, cabin electronic system provides passengers with a new level of cabin control, flexibility, productivity and efficiency. The system includes multiple touch-screen controls and supports optional high-speed connectivity for e-mailing and web browsing. At the press of a button, passengers may access a wide range of options, including XM Radio, enhanced AIRBORNE™ Office, DIRECTV™ and audio/video-on-demand.

The aircraft’s interior features the widest stand-up cabin of any large-category business jet available today. The new cabin includes optimized, ergonomically enhanced working areas including a four-seat conference grouping in the rear. LED lighting is featured throughout the jet. Newly positioned, larger windows increase the viewing angle and provide added natural lighting in the cabin. A new galley design offers increased capacity and functionality.

The Challenger 605 flight deck features the Rockwell Collins Pro Line 21 Avionics suite, which is fully configurable and offers pilots instant, intuitive access to critical flight information.
