The first Challenger 350 from Bombardier has been delivered to NetJets Inc., a fractional ownership company.
Earlier this week, Bombardier announced that the Signature Series Challenger 350 had received its Federal Aviation Administration certification. Friday, it said an event at the Westchester County Airport in White Plains, N.Y., marked the aircraft’s entry into service. Bombardier executives handed the keys of the aircraft to NetJets officials at the ceremony.
NetJets is the worldwide launch customer for the Challenger 350 aircraft and will add eight of the jets to its fleet this year, according to a news release from Bombardier.
NetJets, a Berkshire Hathaway company, was established in 1964 as a private jet charter and management company, pioneering the fractional ownership concept in the 1980s.
Bombardier, based in Montreal, Canada, operates Learjet facilities in Wichita.
