Vegas got a first look at the next era of private aviation when NetJets and Bombardier unveiled the new Challenger 650 at the 2015 National Business Aviation Association conference and exhibition. The wide-body business jet, the 1,000th plane in Bombardier’s Challenger 600 series, offers a transcontinental range of 4,000 nautical miles, which means the custom-built plane is capable of connecting nonstop London to Dubai. Other routes will include Miami to São Paulo and New York to London.
The Challenger 650 also offers a top-of-the-line experience when it comes to aesthetics, thanks to plush surroundings (think leather upholstery and modern, clean colors) and a next-generation in-flight entertainment system that boasts high-definition monitors, audio/video on demand, Bluetooth integration and industry-leading connectivity. It’s a worthy addition to NetJets’ Signature Series of aircraft, known for sky-high comfort, style and state-of-the-art technology.
