Bombardierís Global 5500 and 6500 Jets Receive Transport Canada Type Certification

Bombardier's two latest additions to the Global Family of business jets, the Global 5500 and Global 6500, have been awarded Transport Canada Type Certification, paving the way for entry-into-service this year.

Certification by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) are expected to follow shortly.

ďFollowing their dramatic unveiling last year, these aircraft continue to surprise and surpass expectations. Thanks to a new wing design and custom-made Rolls-Royce Pearl engines, the Global 5500 and Global 6500 jets boast farthest-in-class ranges, offering unrivalled performance and unsurpassed passenger comfort, at exceptional operating costs,Ē said David Coleal, President, Bombardier Aviation. ďNot only did we deliver on our commitments but we did on schedule, demonstrating the ingenuity, skill, rigor and consummate professionalism that is inherent to the longstanding winning DNA of our dedicated team members.Ē

The aircraft flew through the rigorous flight testing program, which was completed at Bombardierís test centre in Wichita, Kansas.

 The Pearl 15 engine, the latest addition to Rolls-Royceís portfolio, also received Transport Canada certification recently.

The engine, developed at the Rolls-Royce Centre of Excellence for Business Aviation engines in Dahlewitz, Germany, features enhanced aerodynamics, blade cooling and advanced engine health monitoring systems.

These 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.
