Bombardier has delivered a Global 6000 aircraft to Formula 1 champion, Niki Lauda.

Mr. Lauda, acting as an official spokesperson for Bombardier Business Aircraft, will fly his new Global 6000 aircraft to Grand Prix races around the world, and will make appearances at Bombardier Business Aircraft events throughout the 2015 Formula 1 season.

"We're thrilled to deliver our highly successful Global 6000 business jet to Niki Lauda," said Eric Martel, President of Bombardier Business Aircraft. "We are also privileged to be working in close collaboration with Mr. Lauda - like our Global aircraft he set the benchmark for outstanding performance and achievement."

Three-time Formula 1 World Champion Niki Lauda has a long history in aviation. He was the founder of Lauda Air in 1979, and in 2003, he founded NIKI Luftfahrt GmbH, a low-cost airline based in Vienna.

 The Global 6000 jet is the latest in a series of Bombardier business aircraft that Mr. Lauda has owned and piloted during his career as an aviator. Until recently he operated a Global 5000 and Challenger 300 jet as his private aircraft, which he frequently used to travel to Formula 1 races around the world from his home base in Austria.

"I had the wonderful opportunity to tour Bombardier's Global manufacturing plant in Toronto, recently, and I am impressed with the expertise, craftsmanship and innovation that go into building every Global aircraft," said Niki Lauda. "From a pilot's perspective, the Global 6000 aircraft is fast and fun to fly - it's a performing business jet that delivers impressive range and reliability."

 The Global 6000 business jet can travel 6,000 nautical miles (11,112-km) at M 0.85 with up to eight passengers.
