Posted 1 October 2019 · Add Comment

Bombardier is celebrating the entry-into-service of the latest addition to its Global family, the Global 6500 jet.

 

David Coleal, President, Bombardier Aviation said: “We’re proud of the work our team and our suppliers have done to deliver a technologically advanced aircraft that exceeds our customers’ expectations in terms of unparalleled comfort, superior performance and an incomparable smooth ride. The Global 6500 business jet continues to maintain the longstanding winning DNA of our Global family of aircraft, the most successful long-range business jet platform.”

The aircraft went through the rigorous flight testing programme, which was completed at Bombardier’s test centre in Wichita, Kansas. The Pearl 15 engine, the latest addition to Rolls-Royce’s exceptional business aviation engine portfolio, received EASA certification in 2018 and Transport Canada certification recently. The engine, developed at the Rolls-Royce Centre of Excellence for Business Aviation engines in Dahlewitz, Germany, was custom-designed with the most innovative technology – including enhanced aerodynamics, blade cooling and advanced engine health monitoring systems – to power the Global 5500 and Global 6500 aircraft.

With the purpose-built engines, advanced wing design and built-in systems redundancy and robustness for which Bombardier Global aircraft are renowned, the aircraft offer a smooth ride to its passengers. The new Rolls-Royce Pearl engines also make the Global 6500 aircraft a cleaner and more efficient business jet.

Equipped with the revolutionary Bombardier Vision Flight Deck and the industry’s leading cockpit, the aircraft offers a comprehensive avionics suite with ergonomics and aesthetics that provide pilots with outstanding comfort and control.

The Global 6500 aircraft has a class-leading range of 6,600 nautical miles, with a top speed of Mach 0.90 and Bombardier’s smooth ride technology. It can connect New York to Dubai, and Hong Kong to London.

The Global 6500 aircraft offers a redesigned cabin with exclusive features. The business jet also debuts the Nuage chaise, a unique seating innovation, which adds new dimensions to the conference suite as a lounge chair that converts into a flat surface for sleeping or banquet-style dining around the table. Bombardier's patented Nuage seat is also exclusive to the new Global aircraft family. With its distinctive technology, the Nuage seat is ideally suited for long-range flights.
