The Challenger 601-3R is a twin turbofan, long range, wide-body business aircraft configured as a cantilever low, swept-wing monoplane. It has retractable tricycle landing gear with dual wheels on each unit and a trailing link main gear design. Aerodynamic refinements, such as the addition of drag-reducing winglets, have been combined with increased fuel capacity to give the 601 the transoceanic range originally planned for the Challenger series. The 601-3R incorporates a fully-automated digital glass cockpit and exceptionally roomy interior to ensure Canadair's place in the world-class, large business jet market.The Challenger 601-3R has a maximum occupancy of 19, but typical configurations accommodate 10-12 passengers with a deluxe galley and lavatory, and amenities appropriate for the relatively long leg times expected of an aircraft of this class. The Challenger 601-3R is powered by two GE CF34-3A1 two-spool, high-bypass ratio turbofans rated at 8,729 lbs. thrust each at takeoff. Inspection interval on the engines is 6,000 hours.
