Now presenting... the Challenger 350

The time has come! As I mentioned in my last topic here, I eluded that I would be joining the FL400 club here soon flying an aircraft that wasn’t an airliner. At the time, I wasn’t quite sure which one as we have a whole fleet of aircraft that operate above this altitude. As of last week, I was pleased to find out that I was going to be assigned and flying the Challenger 350.

For those who aren’t familiar with the Challenger 350, its classified as a “Super-Midsize Jet”. Perfect for long range, transcon, transpacific, and transatlantic operations. I’ve included a link as well as a few photos for your viewing.

Quick Stats:

  • Service Ceiling: 45,000ft
  • Normal Cruise: 315kts/M.82
  • Max Mach: 320kts/M.83
  • Endurance: 7:45hrs
  • MTOW: 40,600lbs (18,416kgs)
  • Passengers: up to 9 Passengers
  • Crew: 2 pilots + no flight attendant

This is the super and way updated baby brother of the CRJ200. Way nicer avionics and automation than the 200. Should be crisscrossing all over the country. Even to the smaller towns and islands out there

Congratulations, Deer! I’m so happy for you!

Now, let’s talk about destinations. It appears that FlexJet (I assume you are flying for them?) enjoys sending their CL35s to MMU from EGE. I’m not great at geography, but I do know that you’re not too far from EGE, and I’m not too far from MMU.

So, as long as you don’t turn into ZackCrusher, I think this will work out just fine.
