Do you want a little taster of how James Bond lives? Perhaps purchasing a Bombardier Challenger 605 is your best option. Used in the film “Quantum of Solace”, starring English actor Daniel Craig, this executive jet is one of the most spacious and luxuriously equipped aircraft in the heavy jet category – with all the sophistication that the world’s most famous secret agent demands.
Widely recognized, the Challenger 605 is consequently one of the most sought-after aircraft not only for charters, but also in the sector for the purchase and sale of jets, of which Flapper is now part.
We are talking about a variation of the “Series 600” from Bombardier, which over the years has also developed the famous models 600, 601, 604 and 650. Find out more about the Challenger 605 below.
In total, depending on the internal configuration, the aircraft can accommodate up to 12 people, with an impressive ceiling height for each of them. One of the most common configurations is four single seats in club seating, another two double seats facing each other and a leather sofa for four passengers. As these are retractable seats, as well as tables, the 12 seats can be transformed into five beds, providing more comfort on long journeys.
Major routes are possible, as the Challenger 605 can make domestic and international flights of more than 7 thousand kilometers without stops. The wide range makes it ideal for itineraries out of the country or for long business trips.
For those who choose to contract a good catering service, the kitchen facilities of this aircraft guarantee an excellent service. It is fully equipped and also has a microwave oven and coffee maker. The aircraft is also prepared to offer in-flight services and flight attendants.

How the Bombardier Challenger 605 was born
The whole concept of the “600 Series” was developed in the 1970s, within the Canadair company. It is a project from the famous American entrepreneur and inventor Bill Lear, who became more famous for another of his creations: the Learjet.
The first model – the 600 – came into play in 1980.
Despite the growth in sales of the model after this change took place, the small volume of sales at the launch of the series contributed to a financial crisis for Canadair, which was, in 1986, acquired by Bombardier Aerospace – which not only continued to operate the Challenger how it financed the development of new models and derivatives, such as the already mentioned 604 and 650, in addition to “our” 605.
The Challenger’s great success was an important part of Bombardier’s stability, which in recent decades has been able to invest in other relevant aircraft models, such as the CRJ100 series and the Global Express.
It is estimated that, over these more than four decades of existence, the Challenger “Series 600” has sold more than 1,000 units around the world. In a count carried out in 2018, 611 of these aircraft operated in North America, 151 in Europe, 93 in Latin America, 78 in Asia, 37 in Africa and 23 in the Middle East.
