Exceptional 2012 Bombardier Challenger 605 (S/N 5908)

By Côme Charron

October 20, 2017

Guardian Jet is pleased to represent the sale of this beautiful, exceedingly well-maintained 9-passenger Bombardier Challenger 605.

Offered at $13,500,000, its sole owner has been a Fortune 500 company that maintained it as a FAR Part 91 aircraft.

With the Proline 21 Advance upgrade, this aircraft is already compliant for the future navigation regulations. It also complies with FANS 1/A, CPDLC and ADS-B Out—so you won’t need to upgrade the flight deck!


For background, the Challenger 605 was introduced in early 2006 as an avionics and structural upgrade to the 604 design.

Fashioned after its predecessor, the Challenger 604 (which, incidentally was the "best-selling model in the heavy-iron category"), the Challenger 605 maintains all the superlative design features of the 604, while adding freedom, innovation and some solid performance capabilities.

With a combination of club, divan and individual seating, the Challenger 605 typically carries 10-12 passengers. Cabin measurements are 6.1 feet tall, more than 7 feet wide and 28.3 feet long, a length almost necessary for long-duration flights.

This particular aircraft has completely restyled to reflect its customers’ every desire.

Some of the upgrades include larger and higher-positioned windows which make for ideal viewing pleasure; and it boasts an improved Ethernet-based management system, larger video monitors, an upgraded galley area, sturdier worktables and more LED lighting.

Overall, the CL-605’s cabin offers its passengers more in nearly every respect.
