Bombardier Adds 300 Nautical Miles to Range of Global 7000

Bombardier has confirmed that its Global 7000 business jet has a range of 7,700 nautical miles, 300 nautical miles more than was originally announced.

 With a new maximum operating range of 7,700 nautical miles, the Global 7000 aircraft can connect cities such as New York to Hong Kong and Singapore to San Francisco.

We are thrilled to offer this extended range to our loyal customers, who are the driving force behind our engineering feats and who will soon own an aircraft that simply has no peer, said David Coleal, President, Bombardier Business Aircraft. Not only are we standing by our commitment to begin delivering Global 7000 aircraft this year, we are exceeding expectations along the way.

Global 7000 flight test vehicles have completed several long-haul flights to destinations including Sydney, Dubai and Hawaii. The new 7,700-nautical-mile baseline range will be a feature on the Global 7000 aircraft for all existing and future customers and will come at no additional cost.

 The flight test program is progressing to plan, with all five test vehicles in flight. The flight test program, which began in November 2016, has completed more than 1,800 hours of flight testing and is currently finalizing certification for the aircraft.

The Global 7000 aircraft is scheduled to enter service during the second half of 2018.
