Another business aircraft milestone

The birth of one of the most successful business jet linages occurred 40 years ago today with the first flight of the Bombardier Challenger 600.

Derived from Bill Lear’s (of Learjet) Learstar 600 project, Canadair (the predecessors of Bombardier) developed the initial design into the Challenger 600 complete with the aircraft’s recognisable T-tail.

By 1982 the aircraft developed into the Challenger 601, which by 1996 had evolved with the addition of winglets, General Electric CF34-3B engines, improved undercarriage and Rockwell Collins Proline 4 avionics system to the Challenger 604. This was further modified in 2006 to become the Challenger 605 (pictured above) which featured Proline 21 avionics, larger cabin windows and a new tailcone.

Since September 2014, Allaero has extended its industry-recognized support to the Bombardier Challenger 600 range. We now stock a exchange program of Challenger parts from oxygen and fire systems to wheels and brakes. This support also extends to parts for the Global Express and Challenger 300.
