Bombardier aircraft on static display
Learjet 45 XR aircraft: When compared to its closest competitor, the eight-to-nine passenger Learjet 45 XR aircraft flies faster and farther, with more passengers(i). The jet's passenger cabin area is approximately 15 inches (38 cm) longer and features the only double-club seating configuration in its class, making it an ideal product for charter and fractional operators.
Challenger 300 aircraft: This first true super-midsize aircraft offers transcontinental range and superior long-range cruise speed, with eight-to-ten passengers. It can fly London-Kuweit non-stop with a full payload and its superior airfield performance allows it to operate out of 5,000-foot (1,524-m) runways with ease(i). The Challenger 300 jet offers the best performance and value in its class combined with a dispatch reliability consistently over 99.7 per cent - this aircraft has exceeded customer expectations since its entry-into-service in 2004.
Global 6000 aircraft: The Global 6000 business jet features the largest cabin of any purpose-built corporate aircraft - offering more cabin volume and more floor space than its closest competitor. No other business jet in the ultra long-range segment matches the high-speed range capability delivered by this aircraft. Offering the ultimate in cabin comfort, this impressive jet can link London-Tokyo non-stop with eight passengers and three-to-four crew(i).
Q400 NextGen aircraft: The "comfortably greener" 70- to 80-seat Q400 NextGen turboprop airliner is a large, fast, fuel-efficient aircraft that provides an ideal balance of passenger comfort and operating economics. It uses 30 to 40 per cent less fuel and produces 30 to 40 per cent fewer emissions on routes where it has replaced similar-capacity older jets. The Q400 NextGen aircraft's maximum cruise speed of 360 knots lets it fly on demand-driven interchangeable schedules with jets. However, the Q400 aircraft can slow down to achieve fuel parity with other turboprops on a per-seat basis, while still maintaining both speed and cost advantages.
CRJ900 NextGen aircraft: Like other members of the CRJ Series family of aircraft, the light weight and advanced aerodynamics of the CRJ900 NextGen regional jet combine to deliver improved efficiency and reduced operating costs compared to other aircraft in its class. The combination of a larger winglet and other optimizations give this regional jet excellent airfield capabilities and enroute fuel consumption.
Both the Q400 NextGen and CRJ900 NextGen aircraft feature new interiors, larger overhead luggage bins, improved lighting and redesigned ceiling panels and sidewalls.
