Bombardier Challenger 650 was first certified in 2015 as an upgrade to the Challenger 605, a previous model in the Challenger family of business jets. The Bombardier Challenger 650 offers many refinements from the earlier Challenger 605 including an updated cabin with two additional executive seats and larger galley appliances to reduce meal prep time. The enhancements make the Challenger 650 a highly versatile aircraft for business and personal travel compared to similar heavy jets.

The highly intuitive cabin of the Bombardier Challenger 650 is very spacious with 6 feet of standing height and measures over 7.9 feet in width. The cabin space can be configured into a 12-passenger executive seating in club configuration, or have a 4-place divan with berthing capability.

Many 650s feature a 4-place conference grouping that includes a height-adjustable single pedestal conference table essential for business meetings in the air. This aircraft will accommodate 10-12 passengers comfortably as well as 2 crew members and a flight attendant. The Challenger 650 also has a generous baggage compartment providing 115 cubic feet of external storage that is accessible during flight.

Other notable features of this jet include: an intuitive cabin entertainment system, industry-leading high-speed internet connectivity, plug-and-play entertainment experience with universal HDMI and USB ports and wireless control of the cabin environment and entertainment via personal electronic devices. With an advanced cockpit, a cabin built for comfort and productivity, and a first-class galley, private jet travelers highly recommend the Bombardier Challenger 650.
