200 more than originally planned.
ďThis spacious and efficient aircraft is the
ultimate business tool, with the range and access to safely take
our customers where they need to be,Ē said David Coleal,

delivery is of particular significance for our employees in

Completion work for the Global 5000 and Global
5500 aircraft cabins was done at Bombardierís Wichita site.
