Bombardier has celebrated the entry-into-service of
the latest addition to its Global family, the Global 6500 jet.
The aircraft will make its public debut at the
National Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (NBAA-BACE) in
Las Vegas on 22 October 2019.
“We are celebrating a significant
milestone with the entry-into-service of this exceptional
aircraft,” said David Coleal, President, Bombardier Aviation.
“We’re proud of the work our team and our suppliers have done to
deliver a technologically advanced aircraft that exceeds our
customers’ expectations in terms of unparalleled comfort, superior
performance and an incomparable smooth ride. The Global 6500
business jet continues to maintain the longstanding winning DNA of
our Global family of aircraft, the most successful long-range
business jet platform.”
The aircraft is powered by the Pearl 15 engine,
the latest addition to Rolls-Royce’s portfolio. It was developed at
the Rolls-Royce Centre of Excellence for Business Aviation engines
in Dahlewitz, Germany, and was custom-designed with the most
innovative technology, including enhanced aerodynamics, blade
cooling and advanced engine health monitoring systems.
The engines give the Global
6500 aircraft a range of 6,600 nautical miles,
with a top speed of Mach 0.90.
The Global 6500 can connect New York to Dubai,
and Hong Kong to London, and has the performance required to access airports that others can’t, such as
