Please be advised: Owning an Aviationtag, is owning a piece of history. During the airplane’s long life, the skin has developed some unique properties which make each tag different. Depending on the aircraft and what part it’s manufactured from, tags may show differences in material, color, thickness, and finish. For example, small scratches and flaking paint are perfectly normal, and these imperfections reflect on the long history of the aircraft. They give the tag its unique look and make it an excellent aviation collectible!
History of the Challenger
The Bombardier Challenger is a family of mid-sized, long-range business jets that has been in production since 1980. The first model, the Challenger 600, was developed as a collaboration between Bill Lear, the founder of Learjet, and Canadair, a subsidiary of Bombardier.
The Challenger 600 was designed to be a larger and more spacious alternative to Learjet’s smaller business jets. It used General Electric CF34 engines and had a 3,000+ mile range. The Challenger 601 was later released in 1983 with updated wings and avionics.
In the following years, Bombardier continued to refine the Challenger line. The Challenger 604, introduced in 1995, had improved engines and a longer range, while the Challenger 605, introduced in 2006, featured even more advanced avionics and improved cabin amenities.
The latest iteration of the Challenger family is the Challenger 650, which was introduced in 2015. The 650 features new engines, a redesigned wing, and a state-of-the-art avionics suite. It also has an increased range of over 4,000 miles and a top speed of Mach 0.85.
