Bombardier Challenger 350 to expand its segment-defining performance capabilities with imminent steep approach certification

Bombardier’s Challenger 350 aircraft is progressing towards steep approach certification, allowing operators to perform landings under strict conditions, including the steep 5.5-degree approach angle and short runway of London City Airport. The aircraft recently completed its steep approach certification flight test campaign, and also performed several takeoffs and landings at the London City Airport to demonstrate this operational capability. Final certification is expected later this year. 

“The Challenger 350 aircraft’s proven high performance and superior in-flight experience have made it the undeniable market leader in its segment,” said Peter Likoray, Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Bombardier Business Aircraft. “With its upcoming steep approach certification, the Challenger 350 jet is cementing its leadership position and will offer the most flexibility to our discerning clientele.”
