Bombardier Aerospace announced the entry into service of the 100th manufactured Challenger 605 jet. With over 800 aircraft manufactured, the popular Challenger 600 series has accumulated over 4,000,000 flight hours with a dispatch reliability of over 99.8 per cent as at September 2009.

“We are delighted to announce this milestone delivery,” said Michel Ouellette, vice-president and general manager, Challenger programs, Bombardier Business Aircraft. “This is a testament to the popularity and reliability of this robust platform – a jet that continues to prove itself as a valuable business tool for corporate leaders worldwide.”

In service since January 2007, the Challenger 605 jet builds on the legacy of quality and reliability of its predecessor, the acclaimed Challenger 604 jet, leading its market share segment throughout the world. The Challenger 605 jet can whisk five passengers from Montreal to any European destination non-stop*, including London City Airport, in superior comfort. It features the widest stand-up cabin of any large category business jet available today and is equipped with the Pro Line 21 avionics suite and an all-new cabin electronic system. The Bombardier Enhanced Vision System (BEVS) is offered as optional equipment on the Challenger 605 jet.
