Bombardier's Masterpiece Flies from London City Airport to Los Angeles, California

Bombardier's Global 7500 aircraft, has shown off its impressive performance capabilities with the first ever flight from London City Airport to Los Angeles, California.

The aircraft flew non-stop from London City Airport (LCY), one of the most notable airports requiring steep approach capabilities, to Van Nuys, CA, one of the most popular business aviation airports serving the Los Angeles area.

The flight was carried out by a flight test vehicle (FTV5) called “The Masterpiece” to complete the Global 7500 aircraft’s steep approach certification flight test campaign for Transport Canada.

The Masterpiece was configured with the equivalent weight of a fully fitted interior, including a stateroom and shower, and 2,400 lbs of additional payload, representing about 11 passengers and their baggage.

As part of its steep approach certification flight test campaign, the aircraft also performed several takeoffs and landings at London City Airport to demonstrate this operational capability. The Global 7500 aircraft gives passengers direct access to any location in the U.S. from the airfield deep in the heart of one of the world’s greatest financial centres.

“Welcoming the Bombardier Global 7500 aircraft to London City Airport for its flight test campaign is a crucial milestone towards certification and subsequent business jet operations at London’s most central airport,” said Gary Hodgetts, Director of Operations at London City Airport. “The flight completed by the Global 7500 FTV is the longest flight ever out of London City and simply demonstrates the exceptional performance of the aircraft.”

The Global 7500 aircraft is the largest business jet with short-field performance and steep approach capabilities able to operate out of London City Airport and to connect any city in the continental U.S., Africa or the Middle East. Its long-range performance can go even further traveling eastward, reaching most major cities in Asia.

“The Global 7500 aircraft’s combination of unrivalled performance, exquisite cabin experience and size simply cannot be matched,” said Peter Likoray, Senior Vice President, Worldwide Sales and Marketing, Bombardier Business Aircraft. “This demonstration continues to cement the Global 7500 jet as the industry leader, showcasing once again to customers the real-world capabilities of this revolutionary aircraft that can deliver uncompromising value to customers under any conditions, at any time, without the need for tailwinds.”
