The company says the order from a customer who wishes to remain confidential is its largest this year.
The Challenger 3500 business jet was unveiled on Sept. 14.
The jet is an updated version of its Challenger 350 mid-sized business jet.
It includes a redesigned interior as well as a voice-controlled cabin, wireless chargers and new 4K displays.
