Bombardier delivers first German Challenger 650
Bombardier has delivered the first Challenger 650 to be operated in Germany.
The aircraft is registered in Switzerland as HB-JSF / msn 6073. The owner is listed on the Swiss civil aircraft register as Scintilla AG, who are a division of Stuttgart Germany based home appliance giant Bosch AG.
“This first German customer delivery of a Bombardier Challenger 650 jet confirms the aircraft’s leadership in Western Europe,” said Christophe Degoumois, vice president, Sales, Europe, Russia and CIS, Bombardier Business Aircraft. “The Challenger aircraft series, and the Challenger 650 jet in particular, are leaders in their category in Europe, with a market share of over 40 per cent. With the Synthetic Vision System (SVS) offered as baseline, its cabin almost six inches wider than the closest competitor, as well as the latest entertainment and productivity solutions, the Challenger 650 aircraft is the right choice for customers seeking uncompromised performance.”
Bombardier has now delivered 26 Challenger 650 aircraft. NetJets currently operates almost half of the aircraft in service, with other aircraft registered in Canada, Mexico and the Isle of Man.
