The Bombardier Challenger 605 executive jet is the follow-up to the world’s best selling line of large business jets. The aircraft is built on a tried and true platform that business professionals and flight crews have come to depend and demand for. Offering the widest and quietest cabin environment than any other large luxury jet, passengers have the ability to work and rest in complete harmony and comfort. With a cruising speed of 528 mph, the Challenger 605 can easily cross from the east coast of Canada to the west in as little as six and a half hours, making a weekend ski trip to Whistler a swift and comfortable experience. Image Air Charter would like to welcome you aboard our 10 to 12 passenger Challenger 605 aircraft where you can fly refined with amenities such as a cordless satellite phone, in-flight entertainment system with multiple, personal flat screen monitors, a full galley, and of course, the latest in safety and security systems.
Powerplant: 2 × General Electric CF34-3A turbofans, 40.7 kN (9,140 lbf) each
The Challenger 605 also performs well due in large part to its two General Electric CF34-3B engines, producing 8,729 lbs of thrust apiece.
Another area of substantial improvement is in the Challenger 605’s avionics. Its predecessor’s avionics system was so successful that such significant improvements were inconceivable. To enhance performance and efficiency, Bombardier chose to do away with the 604’s Pro Line 4 system, and instead equip the aircraft with the more advanced Rockwell Collins Pro Line 21 suite. Some noticeable changes are the four-screen display system, offering 55 percent more area, and an improved pilot interface. The new avionics system features CNS radios, Honeywell Laseref V IRSes, better DADCs, fewer control panels, and less weight overall.
Equipped with the same wings and engines, the long-range business jet performs similarly to the 604. It can travel over 4,000 nautical miles at a Mach .80 maximum. Its maximum takeoff weight (MTOW) is 48,200 lbs. However, the Challenger 605 also boasts better numbers in a few key areas. Its payload of 5,015 lbs increased 200 lbs from its predecessor. Thanks to design modifications, newly located fuel tanks, one aft bladder tank and an enlarged tailcone tank, provide better weight distribution and fuel economy. Also, Bombardier designed the aircraft for fast in-and-out removal for maintenance.

For good reason, Bombardier chose to preserve the spacious “Challenger” cabin that has accommodated business travelers for years. In a combination of club, divan and individual seating, the Challenger 605 typically carries 10-12 passengers. Cabin measurements are 6.1 feet tall, over 7 feet wide and 28.3 feet long, almost necessary for long-duration flights. However, it has been completely restyled to reflect customers’ every desire. Larger and higher-positioned windows make for ideal viewing pleasure. It has an improved Ethernet-based management system, larger video monitors, an upgraded galley area, sturdier worktables and more LED lighting. Overall, the Challenger 605’s cabin offers more in every respect.
