MORRISTOWN, N.J. (October 16, 2018) – Titan Aviation, a global provider of aircraft management, aircraft sales, and aircraft charter has announced the addition of the highly acclaimed Bombardier Challenger 650 (CL650) to its impressive fleet of nearly 30 managed global aircraft.
The large-cabin CL650 carries up to 12 passengers, two pilots, and one flight attendant a total of 4,600 miles, or eight hours, in one non-stop flight. This makes it easy to cross the Atlantic Ocean, or to travel to Asia or the Middle East with one hop.
The state-of-the-art CL650 is capable of a top speed of 647 mph and a cruise speed of 609 mph. The aircraft, built by Canada’s Bombardier Aerospace, will be based in Europe. However, the CL650’s floating base means it is available for charter anywhere in the U.S., Europe, and Asia.
“By adding this jet to our fleet, we can offer multiple options to our valuable charter clients, most of whom have many passengers on any given trip,” said Captain Sakeer C. Sheik, founder and chairman of Titan Aviation. “Our nearest competitor cannot carry so many passengers on such long sectors.”
The Challenger aircraft platform is very reliable and has accumulated more than four million flight hours. “We found that the CL650’s proven track record is very attractive, combined with lower operating costs and much better passenger comfort than competitors’ offerings,” added Sheik.
In fact, the CL650 treats passengers to a smoother ride than nearly any plane in its class, because Bombardier equips all planes with specially-designed wings. The CL650 includes a Bluetooth-enabled cabin environment and entertainment system, plus on-board Wi-Fi.
In the forward section of the CL650 are four facing, swiveling, and reclining leather club seats. In the middle of the plane is the conference area, comprised of four more facing seats, a four-seat divan, and a pop-up table. The forward seating and divan configurations also convert into beds for long flights.
For leisure travelers, the aircraft provides plenty of space and several in-flight entertainment options. Passengers can also carry ample baggage without affecting the performance of the jet.
The Challenger 650 entered service in 2015. It was first introduced at the 2014 National Business Aviation Conference (NBAA) in Orlando. The aircraft joins Titan Aviation’s globally-managed fleet which includes a variety of options, from light jets to ultra-long-range aircraft. Among the aircraft available to charter are a Lineage 1000, Bombardier Global 6000, Legacy 650, and Gulfstream GV.
Titan Aviation recently opened its United States headquarters at Morristown Municipal Airport, just west of New York City, as well as a South Florida office at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.
Titan Aviation’s international experience includes Europe, Dubai, India, and other markets that operate under the highest levels of jurisdictional oversight. This background has equipped Titan Aviation with a high degree of professionalism, safety, quality, integrity and customer care.
Titan Aviation has earned many industry accreditations, including ARGUS and Wyvern. Titan Aviation is also a member of the Air Charter Safety Foundation (ACSF), the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA), Business Aircraft Operators Association (BAOA), and the Asian Business Aviation Association (AsBAA). Titan Aviation abides by the International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO), demonstrating a commitment to the highest levels of safety in personal, business and charter aviation through the promotion and facilitation of risk management programs.
