Challenger 850

I am looking for a realistic max range for the CL-850 with max payload...

Thanks

The range varies quite a bit depending on completion.

We have quite heavy 850 with PATS tanks installad.

If we would choose to fill up the aux PATS tanks giving us around 4000lbs of extra fuel, we would be able to put in just about one pilot and there would be the max ramp weight.

With only few pax, you can go somewhere, but with the full load with our aircraft, 2300NM would most likely be about the max.

However, I have heard that there are better examples around.

hmmm...

most 850s with pats tanks seem to be very heavy...

example:
bew incl 2 pilots: 15,7 tons
zwf incl 1 fa and 13 pax: 17,1 tons
fuel up to max ramp weight: ca 7000kg

range with 7000kg fuel 5 or maybe 5,5 hrs maximum
range ca 2200nm still air distance
range depending on contingency fuel and planning (FAA or JAA and alternate)
i have seen different seating options up to 16 seats -

hope that helps
