More about the Challenger 601-3R
The Bombardier Challenger 601-3R is a derivative of the successful Challenger 600. Although the 601 has two different versions, the 601-3A and the 601-3R, the 3R version replaced the 3A in 1993. The primary selling point of the Challenger 601 is its massive interior tailored mainly to maintaining maximum passenger comfort. It has an exceptionally wide cabin when compared to other business jets and comfortably transports a large number of passengers across transcontinental ranges. Among its other strengths are relatively low operating costs, straightforward maintenance procedures, and incredible reliability. The Challenger 601-3R model improves upon multiple aspects of the original 601, and is an excellent option for private travelers who are looking for a travel solution capable of executing regular transcontinental flights, consolidating these capabilities in a concise package that is value-conscious, resilient, and reliable. Its excellent range allows it to provide nearly limitless travel options within the U.S., while maintaining a spacious, comfortable, and luxurious atmosphere throughout the mission.
Production on the Challenger 601-3R started in 1993 and ended in 1996.
Key Features of the Challenger 601-3R
The Challenger 601-3R is powered by twin General Electric CF34-3A1 engines that each provide an impressive 8,729 pounds of thrust. The aircraft has more power than its parent jet, the 601, and has a respectable maximum cruising speed of 460 knots. Despite its large cabin, the 601-3R can takeoff with a maximum weight of 45,100, which soundly beats competing large-cabin business jets. The 3R features a glass cockpit with a fully-integrated Honeywell SPZ-8000 avionics suite, which comes standard with dual primary flight displays, a malfunction monitor system, a color weather radar, and many other navigational instruments. These state-of-the-art features provide maximum situational awareness for the operators even in conditions where visibility is limited. The piloting experience of the 601-3R is intuitive and straightforward, which allows the operator to work safely and efficiently. The Challenger 601-3R is an outstanding improvement over the already successful Challenger 601 and is ideal for luxurious transcontinental solutions.
Capabilities of the Challenger 601-3R
The interior cabin of the Challenger 601-3R is truly a sight to behold. With extremely generous cabin dimensions of 28' 4" length, 8' 2" width, and 6' 1" height, passengers will enjoy an ample amount of standing room and invaluable freedom of movement. Although the 601-3R is fully capable of transporting up to nineteen people in a high-density seating arrangement, the business jet most comfortably holds up to twelve passengers. And with five passengers or less, the 601-3R can fly as far as 3,585 nautical miles without stopping. Additionally, the 601-3R's cabin pressurization rating is 8.8 psi, which keeps the cabin at comfortable pressure levels throughout the flight. Large windows provide additional lighting and create a warming atmosphere during daytime flights. Altogether, this large business jet is an aircraft that is truly focused more predominantly on comfort, atmosphere, and interior space than the vast majority of other business jets on the market. If you are looking for a executive jet that is as accommodating as it is efficient, it's difficult to find a more suitable option than the Challenger 601-3R.
