Bombardier Receives FAA Certification for the Challenger 350 Aircraft

The Challenger 350 aircraft was granted full type certification from the US Federal Aviation Administration on June 25, 2014

MONTREAL, QUEBEC -- (Marketwired) -- 06/25/14 -- Bombardier Aerospace, the world's leading business aircraft manufacturer, announced today that it has received certification from the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for its Challenger 350 business aircraft. Transport Canada certification was granted on June 12, 2014.

"FAA certification for the Challenger 350 aircraft is another key step on the path to entry-into-service," said Stephane Leblanc, Vice President and General Manager, Challenger Programs, Bombardier Business Aircraft. "Designed with the feedback from existing Challenger aircraft owners and operators, this new aircraft will meet their ever-growing needs. We are looking forward to delivering this segment leading aircraft and are confident that our customers will love it," he added.

Performance and Efficiency

Building upon the legendary segment defining Challenger 300 jet, the Challenger 350 aircraft offers increased performance from the new twin Honeywell HTF7350 engines, each producing 7,323 lb (33 kN) of thrust and reduced emissions(i) and increased aerodynamic efficiency with its new canted winglets. This increased power will allow faster time to climb, coupled with increased efficiency, ultimately placing more destinations within reach. The Challenger 350 jet boasts class-defining performance, a true seats full, tanks full, 3,200 nm (5,926 km) range and will connect Paris with Dubai(i).

Comfort

The Challenger 350 aircraft has redefined the cabin experience with ground-breaking aesthetics and ergonomic advances to create the ultimate in-flight experience. With a flat floor and the widest purpose-built super-midsize cabin, the Challenger 350 jet features an entirely new interior, that lets even more natural light into the cabin with larger windows, resulting in state-of-the-art cabin comfort, technology and productivity. Featuring Lufthansa Technik's next generation nice HD cabin management system, the cabin includes a complete redesign of the way passengers control the cabin environment, complemented by contemporary seat design, a new modular galley and the industry's most advanced side ledge giving you control at your fingertips, a first in business aviation cabin interior design.

Avionics

The Challenger 350 aircraft's cockpit will be equipped with Rockwell Collins Pro Line 21 Advanced avionics system. Features of the new avionics include, among others, synthetic vision, dual inertial reference systems, a paperless capable cockpit and MultiScan Weather Radar. The forward-thinking avionics are designed to shift the workload away from busy pilots, allowing for increased situational awareness.

Customer Support Network

Challenger 350 aircraft customers will be able to count on a full range of 24/7 support around the world. In preparation for a smooth entry-into-service, Bombardier Aerospace is currently reconfiguring a flight training device and Level D full-flight simulator at its aircraft training centre in Dallas, Texas. Customer Services staff deployed throughout its worldwide network of Service Centres, Parts Depots and Regional Support Offices will also be ready to support upcoming entry-into-service activities including spare parts deployments, as well as updated information on the Customer Information Centre (CIC) website and the SmartFix Plus online troubleshooting tool.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
Choosing the right cloud for your workloads is a balancing act that can cost your organization time, money and aggravation - unless you get it right the first time.
