Bombardier Business Aircraft has unveiled the
Nuage (which means cloud in French), the seat that will be
available on the Global 7000 aircraft.
Unlike other aircraft seats where only the back
reclines, pushing the body forward and leading to discomfort, the
Nuage features a patented tilt link system that dips the seat as
the back is reclined, keeping the body fully supported with no
added pressure on the legs. This dynamic movement is the result of
years of research and development, and it serves to support and
cradle the body.
The Nuage seat also features a fluid movement
system and patented floating base, which allows the seat to track
and swivel naturally and effortlessly and without visible floor
rails, further enhancing its streamlined look.
The fluid movement system also includes a centre swivel axis for an intuitively centred point of
rotation in any position, allowing the passenger to swivel with
ease and remarkable precision.
For added comfort and support, the Nuage seat is
equipped with a tilting headrest for optimal neck support in every
"In designing the Nuage seat, we examined every
conceivable passenger need and comfort that might arise while
seated in flight and launched our process from there," said Peter
Likoray, Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Bombardier
Business Aircraft. "This empathetic design philosophy inspired us
to craft a seat unlike any other - the most innovative seat the
industry has seen in three decades. Offering an unprecedented
balance of comfort and control, Nuage is an ergonomic and
aesthetic masterpiece that redefines the very notion of seated
comfort for life above the clouds."
The Global 7000 aircraft is on track to enter
service during the second half of 2018. With a maximum operation
range of 7,700 nautical miles, the Global 7000 aircraft can connect
cities such as New
York and Hong Kong, Singapore and San Francisco, for example.
