Bombardier's Global 5500 and 6500 Business Jets Receive EASA Certification

Bombardier's Global 5500 and Global 6500 business jets have received European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) certification.

The two aircraft are powered by Pearl 15 engines, the latest addition to Rolls-Royce’s business aviation engine portfolio. The engines were manufactured in Dahlewitz, Germany, and were custom-designed with enhanced aerodynamics, blade cooling and engine health monitoring systems.

The new aircraft build on the success of the Global 5000 and Global 6000 aircraft by offering 500 and 600 nautical miles of additional range, respectively, coupled with an up to 13% fuel burn advantage.

The Global 5500 aircraft can connect Sao Paolo and Paris, and Moscow and Los Angeles, while the Global 6500 aircraft can connect Hong Kong or Singapore and London, and Toluca and Madrid.

“This milestone is the latest accomplishment for our latest Global aircraft, which continue to exceed expectations on every level,” said Michel Ouellette, Senior Vice President, Program Management and Engineering, Bombardier Aviation. “Obtaining Type Certification from the European Aviation Safety Agency Certification marks one of the final chapters in our very successful development program, and this achievement 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.”

This aircraft entered service on 30 September after receiving Transport Canada certification.
