Challenger 601-3A Interior


The Challenger 601-3A is a long-range business jet that became the successor of the original Challenger 600 with better performing engines, greater range and increased reliability.

The engines were upgraded to the General Electric CF24-3A high-bypass engines, each giving 8,650 lbs of thrust during takeoff, allowing the 601-3A to travel 3,290 nautical miles non-stop at 0.85 Mach.

Other updates found in the 601-3A include an all-glass cockpit, drag-reducing winglets and more fuel capacity. An extra fuel tank comes standard with the -3A/ER variant, increasing its range a little more. This spacious jet accommodates 19 passengers in some limited configurations with most configured for 12. The aircraft is also known for its low noise levels.
