The Challenger 300 is mid-range corporate jet, sitting between Bombardier’s large Learjet 60 and the Challenger 604. The Challenger 300 is made of a light-alloy structure, with composites used for some non-structural items. The fuselage is of a semi-monocoque construction with frames and stringers. The 300 was originally named the ‘Continental’, but became the Challenger 300 in 2002.
