Recently Bombardier presented the new Challenger 650, which will be a continuation and improvement of the Challenger 605 model. The Challenger 650 differs in the updated interior, avionics and engines. The avionics complex includes Bombardier Vision equipment with a multi-mode weather radar and a synthetic vision system. More powerful engines will increase the payload, while the flight range will remain unchanged at 7,400 km.
But according to Bombardier, the main difference between the Challenger 650 and the 605 is in the passenger cabin, which, as in the case of the Challenger 350, received special attention. A 24-inch monitor has appeared in the cabin, the seats have become wider and they have a full-size headrest. The gallery area has been completely redesigned, now it is possible to simultaneously serve 12 passengers.
The price of the new Challenger 650 will increase by US $ 500,000 up to US $ 32.3 million. It is planned that deliveries to customers can start at the end of 2015.
