Bombardier’s award-winning Global 7500 business jet earns FAA approval

Posted 8 November 2018 · Add Comment

Bombardier’s flagship business jet, the Global 7500 aircraft, has received Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certification, achieving another important milestone as it approaches entry-into-service later this year.

 

“This milestone is the latest accomplishment for our award-winning Global 7500 business jet, which has been exceeding expectations on every level,” said Michel Ouellette, Senior Vice President, Global 7500 and Global 8000 Program, Bombardier Business Aircraft. “The Global 7500 business jet has proven itself as the highest-performing aircraft in the industry and promises to revolutionize the market and significantly change the business aviation landscape.”

“Obtaining the Global 7500 aircraft Type Certification from the FAA marks one of the final chapters in our very successful development programme,” said Stephen McCullough, Bombardier’s vice president of integrated product development for the Global 7500 and Global 8000 Programme. “Achieving this latest milestone is a direct result of the commitment to excellence of the highly-skilled employees who worked on the program and our solid collaboration with our suppliers.”

Earlier this year, the Global 7500 aircraft demonstrated its ability to fly further than any other business jet by expanding its advertised range to 7,700 nautical miles, a full 300 nautical miles further than initial commitments. It also exceeded takeoff and landing performance commitments, facilitating access to challenging airports such as Chicago Executive, MI or Eagle County, CO, even in adverse weather conditions. These achievements have enabled the Global 7500 aircraft to push the boundaries of business travel by elevating the cabin experience all while resetting the bar for long-haul missions in the industry. The Global 7500 aircraft is the only business jet that can connect New York to Hong Kong, and Singapore to San Francisco, nonstop.

The Global 7500 will features its award-winning interior with a full-size kitchen and four true living spaces. The Global 7500 aircraft also debuts Bombardier’s patented Nuage seat, which was meticulously designed for maximum comfort and will be exclusive to the new Global family of aircraft.
