Bombardier Aerospace is enjoying a strong presence at the fourth biennial Aero-Expo Acapulco airshow this week with four aircraft on static display. Among them is the Bombardier Challenger* 300 super-midsize business jet, which is taking a rare break from its flight test program for its Latin American debut.
Other Bombardier products on static display at Aero-Expo Acapulco, which runs from Thursday, March 6 through Saturday, March 9, include a pre-owned Learjet* 31A light business jet, a pre-owned Learjet 45 super-light business jet, and the ultra long-range Global Express* business jet. A total of 75 aircraft and 150 exhibiting companies, representing 14 nations, are expected to participate.
The Bombardier Challenger 300 visiting Acapulco is one of five aircraft participating in a thorough flight test and certification program at Bombardier’s flight test center in Wichita, Kan. Its appearance at Acapulco International Airport is its first outside the United States. “We’re delighted that the flight test program is progressing so well, which allows us to bring the aircraft to this show for a few days,” observed Fabio Rebello, regional vice-president, sales, Latin America, Bombardier Aerospace, Business Aircraft.
Bombardier Aerospace enjoys continued popularity in Mexico
Bombardier Aerospace leads the Mexican business jet market, capturing some 35 per cent of new aircraft deliveries in the past five years. “Our popularity throughout Mexico is no surprise, as we continue to develop jets well-suited to the country’s demanding climate/geography combination,” stated Mr. Rebello.
“With our three proven aircraft families, we are well positioned to continue our traditional role as the region’s industry leader,” Mr. Rebello added.
“Our Bombardier Global family intercontinental business jets provide unsurpassed range out of Mexico, while the Challenger family, including the new Challenger 300, offers unbeatable value and strong reliability. The agile Bombardier Learjet aircraft, with their short balanced field length, can be accommodated by many of the region’s smallest airstrips,” said Mr. Rebello.
Bombardier prides itself on developing innovative aircraft that deliver low operating costs and advanced technology. With its wide range of business jets, Bombardier offers the best possible match between a customer’s mission and their chosen aircraft.
