flyExclusive Adds First Challenger 350 to Fractional Fleet

flyExclusive, a provider of premium private jet charter experiences, has added the first Challenger 350 super-midsize aircraft to its fractional program.


The jet, which has a 3200 nautical-mile range, is the first of what could be as many as 20 Challenger 350s that the company could add to its fleet within the next two years.

“With the addition of the Challenger 350 to our fractional fleet, customers will have the chance to own a jet that boasts a cross-country, nonstop range in the largest cabin in the super-midsize category,” CEO and founder Jim Segrave said. “This is a beautiful jet that our customers will love. It’s fast, and it’s spacious. Whether you want to stand up and walk on the flat floor during the flight, get work done as you fly non-stop cross country or enjoy a meal prepared in a full galley, you can do it on our Challenger 350s.”

The aircraft cabin is comparable to a Gulfstream G-IVSP and has space for eight passengers and 106 cubic feet of baggage. flyExclusive will sell shares in the jets in 50-, 75-, 100-, 150- and 200-hour increments.

The arrival of the aircraft signals the next phase of the company’s strategic focus on modernizing its fleet and expanding its fractional program. In February, the company appointed industry veteran Drake Sneed as SVP of Fractional Sales. In December, the company listed on NYSE American.

Airshare continues growth plans with commitment.

Bombardier has confirmed that Kansas City-based Airshare has committed to ordering up to 20 additional Challenger 3500 aircraft for its fractional ownership fleet. This new agreement will double the size of their Challenger fleet. 

In May 2021, Airshare entered the super-midsize segment with an order for up to 20 Challenger aircraft. As the fast-growing private aviation company moves to exercise all options as part of that original order, this new incremental commitment to Challenger 3500 jets underscores that the smooth, efficient and reliable customer experience that private aviation provides continues to garner significant market interest among the travelling public. 

“The response we have received to the Challenger entering our fractional program has been tremendous, from both new and existing customers,” said John Owen, President and Chief Executive Officer of Airshare. “We are thrilled to extend our commitment with Bombardier and look forward to adding several more Challenger 3500s to our fleet. The strength of our partnership made it easy for us to accelerate our plans to order more of these aircraft to meet customer demand.”

 In 2019, the Challenger 350 aircraft successfully completed a record speed flight from Gstaad to Malaga, Spain, completing the mission in two hours and four minutes at an average cruise speed of Mach 0.82. The Challenger 350 aircraft is also certified for the steep approach into London City Airport.
