The Challenger 601 is a member of the Challenger series of business jets manufactured by Bombardier Aerospace. It is a blend of speed, capacity, and comfort expected of a heavy business jet ideal for short- to medium-haul trips.
One of the things that the Challenger 601 is best known for is its 1,415-cubic-foot main cabin which is among the largest of any aircraft in the heavy business jet category. The aircraft can carry up to 19 passengers though no more than 12 can be accommodated if the cabin is in corporate transport configuration with club seats, folding tables, a refreshment center, an entertainment system, a washroom with toilet, and a wardrobe that can also be used for storing small carry-on luggage. A full lavatory comes as a standard fixture regardless of the interior setup, and the same is true for the 115-cubic-foot external baggage compartment.
The Challenger 601 relies on two General Electric CF34 turbofans, each of which delivers 8,650 pounds of thrust. If flown at a cruising speed of 424 knots, it could reach 3,500 nautical miles without stopping to refuel. Improvements in later subvariants have increased the aircraft’s range even further. For example, the 601-1A features more powerful CF34 turbofans and drag-reducing winglets while the 601-1A/ER and 601-3A/ER have room for an optional removable fuel tank.
