History

In 1996, Bombardier established the Government and Special Mission Aircraft Department, now Specialized Aircraft, to address the distinctive requirements of governments.

Bombardier Specialized Aircraft made its inaugural delivery − the first of five Global Express aircraft destined for the United Kingdom’s Royal Air Force under the Airborne Stand-off Radar (ASTOR) program and one Challenger 604 aircraft to the Korean National Maritime Police (KNMPA).

There are nearly 300 Bombardier Specialized aircraft in service worldwide with government agencies, in a full range of specialized mission applications: 

  • C4ISR
  • Maritime Patrol and Search and Rescue
  • Executive Transport and Logistics Support
  • Flight Inspection
  • Aircrew Training
  • Medevac
  • Flight Test
  • Bombardier Specialized Advantage

With more than 300 aircraft delivered, Bombardier Specialized Aircraft has a proven ability to deliver mission solutions on time and on budget.
