Columbia Air’s 350s, 400s, receive certification by Transport Canada
by Bend Weekly News Sources

Transport Canada, that country’s civil aviation regulatory authority, announced this week that it has certified Bend, Oregon-based Columbia Aircraft Manufacturing Corporation’s 350s and 400s equipped with the state-of-the-art G1000 avionics suite.

This certification marks the third Transport Canada certification earned by Columbia Aircraft Manufacturing Corporation. The Company’s Avidyne Entegra-equipped Columbia 350s and 400s earned their Canadian certification in 2003.

“Canada is a growing market for Columbia,” said Company Vice President of Marketing and Sales Randy S. Bolinger. “Its vast geography is well-suited to the exceptional speed, range and comfort that our aircraft provide. Response in the US and other parts of the world to the Garmin G1000-equipped Columbias with our exclusive READY Pad remote data entry system has been very strong and we anticipate the same will be the case in the Canadian market.”

Those in Canada interested in arranging a demo flight in a G1000-equipped Columbia should contact Solly Capua at Columbia Aircraft Canada 1 905-477-0107.

Columbia Aircraft Manufacturing Corporation, based in Bend, Oregon, manufactures a variety of all-composite aircraft including the Columbia 400 – arguably the world’s fastest certified piston-single. The Columbia 350, 350i, 350SL and 350SLX are normally aspirated, four-place aircraft with a cruise speed of 191 knots. The Columbia 400, 400i, 400SL and 400SLX are intercooled, twin-turbocharged, four-place aircraft certified to FL250 with a cruise speed of 235 knots. In addition to providing legendary performance, both models are renowned for their high level of standard equipment, quality and safety features, including dual electrical systems, dual wing spars and Utility Category certification.
