Challenger 300
Challenger 300

The Challenger 300, produced by Bombardier Aerospace, Canada, is a jet aircraft that can seat up to 16 passengers and fly distances of over 3,500 miles. Although it bears the Challenger name of other Bombardier aircraft, it is an entirely new design.

Flying the Challenger 300

Pilots report that the Challenger 300 has a comfortable cockpit with logically placed instruments and controls. The controls enable small adjustments to engine speed so that there is little braking required while taxiing. Ground handling is easy and smooth.

Engine thrust is automatically controlled during takeoff. The rudder has strong authority, even at initial takeoff speeds.

Flight controls for the elevator and ailerons require minimum effort and provide immediate response.

The Challenger 300 is extremely maneuverable with an excellent roll rate, yet it goes exactly where pointed. Throttle response is virtually immediate, and the aircraft accelerates quickly.

Landing approaches are easy, with the aircraft quickly slowing down upon the application of its speed brakes. The Challenger 300 reacts smoothly while descending, even at a fast pace, without any drama.

Setting down on the runway requires little flare, and the landing gear do a great job in smoothing out less than perfect landings. An application of the brakes will bring the Challenger 300 to a straight, smooth, and surprisingly quick stop.

Over 650 Challenger 300 aircraft have been produced to date.
