Bombardier has announced that private jet charter Latitude 33 Aviation has taken delivery of the first Bombardier customer aircraft to fly on sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), the company said.
Following the first shipment of SAF in Canadian history, the inaugural Bombardier customer aircraft to fly on SAF is the Challenger 350 business jet, which continues to lead the way in the super mid-size segment. The Challenger 350 aircraft recently demonstrated its performance capabilities and reliability by setting speed records for 10 key American city pairings in 20.5 hours.
With half a dozen Challenger series aircraft in service, Latitude 33 Aviation manages one of the newest and largest fleets of light, mid-size, and super mid-size aircraft in North America. The aircraft charter company´s commitment to sustainable flying marks a significant milestone in the increased use of SAF throughout the industry, which follows Bombardier´s inaugural shipment of SAF, a key pillar in the company´s plan to secure long-term partnerships with fuel suppliers to deploy SAF worldwide.
Bombardier announced a series of enhancements to the Challenger 350 aircraft this year, including compact Head-up Display (HUD) and Enhanced Vision System (EVS), class-leading cabin sound-proofing technology, and refined cockpit aesthetics.
