MONTREAL, Oct. 25, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bombardier announced today that Latitude 33 Aviation, a private jet charter, executive jet management, and aircraft sales and acquisitions company based in California, has taken delivery of a new Challenger 350 business jet. The high-performing Challenger 350 aircraft, the best-selling business jet platform of the last decade, will be based in Orange County (John Wayne Airport) and will join Latitude 33 Aviation’s growing fleet of aircraft available for charter.

“We were pleased to work with Latitude 33 in adding the exceptional Challenger 350 aircraft to its fleet,” said Peter Likoray, Senior Vice President, Worldwide Sales and Marketing, Bombardier Business Aircraft. “The Challenger 350 business jet offers the best-equipped cockpit and leading connectivity in its class, making it the perfect choice for discerning customers and operators worldwide.”

Latitude 33 Aviation manages one of the newest and largest fleets of light, mid-size, and super mid-size aircraft in North America. Outstanding reliability makes the Challenger 350 jet the aircraft of choice for Latitude 33 Aviation and other fleet operators.

With a true seats-full, tanks-full, 3,200 NM (5,926 km) range capability, the Challenger 350 aircraft defines the super mid-size category. It offers a direct climb to 43,000 feet to stay clear of weather and traffic, as well as the widest cabin in class, a convenient flat floor, unlimited access to baggage, a smooth ride and the lowest direct operating costs in its category. The Challenger 350 jet can connect New York City to Van Nuys or Las Vegas to Honolulu* non-stop.

“We are very pleased to enhance our private jet charter offering in the Greater Los Angeles area with the addition of this factory-new Challenger 350 business jet,” said Casey Miller, President of Latitude 33 Aviation. “Our goal is to make the aircraft acquisition, management, and charter process exceptionally smooth for our client-owners so they can enjoy their ownership experience with peace of mind from start to finish.”

The Challenger 350 jet offers the industry’s most extensive baseline features to fleet operators, while the recent addition of an advanced Head-up Display (HUD) and Enhanced Vision System (EVS) camera as available options bring unparalleled situational awareness. Paired with impressive high-performance attributes, the aircraft’s steep approach certification allows operators to perform landings in challenging airfields efficiently, giving customers the opportunity to reach countless destinations. The Challenger 350 jet is the top-selling aircraft of the super mid-size segment, with 56 deliveries in 2017.
