enjoyed watching the evolution and growth of the Global Aircraft
program. I have always been impressed with the expertise,
craftsmanship and innovation that go into building every Global
business jet,” said Niki Lauda. “The Global 7500 aircraft is the
culmination of all the knowledge Bombardier teams have gained over
the years and I look forward to experiencing the range, speed and
comfort this jet has to offer.”
The Global 7500 jet is the
latest in a series of Bombardier business aircraft that Mr. Lauda
has owned and piloted during his career as an aviator. Previously,
he operated a Global 6000, Global 5000 and Challenger 300 jet as
his private aircraft.
“We are thrilled to deliver our flagship
Global 7500 business jet to Niki Lauda, our esteemed customer for
many years,” said David Coleal, President, Bombardier Business
Aircraft. “The Global 7500 aircraft is simply the best business
jet on the market. It sets the standard by which all other
aircraft in private aviation will be measured, demonstrated by the prestigious design and aviation awards it has garnered. The Global
7500 aircraft is the crown jewel of the industry.”
The Global 7500 business jet has a top speed of
Mach 0.925 and recently flew from Singapore to Tucson, completing
a record-setting 8,152 nautical mile flight—the longest-range
flight in business aviation history. In addition, it also recently
broke the city pair speed record between Los Angeles and New York.
