CHALLENGER 350 FUELED WITH SUSTAINABLE AVIATION FUEL (SAF)
Latitude 33 Aviation is proud to announce the acceptance of the first Bombardier customer aircraft to be delivered with sustainable aviation fuel (SAF). This award-winning 2019 Challenger 350 will also be the first on Latitude 33 Aviation’s fleet to be based in Seattle, Washington. The Challenger 350 is already one of the most fuel-efficient business aircraft in the world with its redesigned canted winglets that reduce drag and fuel burn, while the engines deliver increased thrust. Available for charter, this factory-new aircraft is leading the way towards a sustainable future for business aviation by mainstreaming the use of an alternative to traditional jet fuel.
THE BENEFITS OF SUSTAINABLE AVIATION FUEL (SAF)
What is Sustainable Aviation Fuel?
Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) is an alternative to traditional jet fuel. SAF is made by blending conventional kerosene with renewable hydrocarbon. Because it is certified as “Jet-A1” fuel, no modifications are required for the aircraft to use SAF.
The use of SAF has been shown to provide great environmental benefits. Sustainable aviation fuel is nearly carbon-neutral over its life cycle because the burning fuel emits an equivalent amount of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere as do plants during the growth of biomass. SAF also contains fewer impurities, which results in a greater reduction of particulate matter emissions.
SAF can be produced from municipal waste that would otherwise be left to decompose in landfill sites. This avoids the use of petroleum and instead reuses the waste to power additional flights.
Economic & Social Benefits
SAF is mainly produced from feedstocks and therefore can be spread worldwide across several different feedstocks that have large amounts of unviable land for food crops. This can simultaneously reduce the exposure to the fuel cost volatility that comes with having a single energy source and introduce a new industry such as sustainable aviation fuel production to developing nations.

With a maximum range of 3,200 nautical miles, you and your passengers are able to travel coast-to-coast and beyond, nonstop. The Challenger 350 is optimally balanced, which provides a smooth ride from takeoff to touchdown. This year, Bombardier announced a series of enhancements to the Challenger 350, including compact Head-up Display (HUD) and Enhanced Vision System (EVS), class-leading cabin sound-proofing technology, and refined cockpit aesthetics. A performance improvement package also allows the aircraft to fly up to 1,500 NM farther out of short runways, complementing its steep approach certifications awarded by international regulatory bodies including EASA, FAA, and TC. With this set of enhancements, the Challenger 350 aircraft continues to take center stage in the super mid-size segment and to be the preferred choice for Latitude 33 Aviation’s luxury travel experiences, such as the West Coast Safari.
