Bombardier’s Global 7500 business jet continues to impress, adding even more accolades to its growing collection.

With over 30 speed records already secured and more on the horizon, the Global 7500 is cementing its position as a leader in the luxury jet market.

Global 7500: Speed over Long Haul Routes

The most recent additions to the record book include impressive long-haul journeys: Farnborough to Muharraq and Phoenix to Paris.

These feats, currently pending official recognition from the FAI (World Air Sports Federation), build upon the jet’s earlier achievements.

Notably, in October 2019, the Global 7500 completed the longest business jet flight ever recorded, traveling a staggering 8,225 nautical miles from Sydney, Australia to Detroit, Michigan.

Further solidifying its dominance, the Global 7500 established over 20 new flight records in late 2023, conquering routes like Singapore to Anchorage, Alaska and Montreal to Geneva.

“The Global 7500 aircraft operates in a league of its own,” said Jean-Christophe Gallagher, Executive Vice-President of Aircraft Sales and Bombardier Defense. “This exceptional business jet is designed to break and reset boundaries.”

Gallagher continued, highlighting the jet’s “impeccable design attributes and technological advancements.”

These features empower customers to elevate their operations, offering a perfect blend of reliability, productivity, and elegance.

Performance and Efficiency

The Global 7500 boasts a top speed of Mach 0.925 and an industry-leading range of 7,700 nautical miles (14,260 km), making it a true performer.

Its innovative Smooth Flĕx Wing, equipped with an advanced slat and flap system, generates exceptional lift during takeoff and approach.

This translates to maximized aerodynamic efficiency, improved safety, a smoother ride, and ultimately, reduced fuel burn and emissions.

The jet’s impressive capabilities extend beyond just numbers. The Global 7500’s stunning and spacious cabin features four distinct living areas. These include a fully-equipped kitchen, and a dedicated crew suite, offering passengers an unparalleled in-flight experience.

Additionally, the jet boasts Bombardier’s revolutionary Nuage seat, featuring the industry’s first-ever zero-gravity position.

The Future of Luxury Flight: Global 8000

Bombardier takes pride in announcing the upcoming Global 8000 aircraft, slated to further enhance the exceptional qualities of the Global 7500.

This flagship of a new era boasts an extended range of 8,000 nautical miles and a top speed of Mach 0.94.

Designed with wellness in mind, the Global 8000 features the healthiest cabin environment in the industry. Bombardier’s Pũr Air and advanced HEPA filter technology ensure the cleanest possible cabin air with the fastest fresh air replacement rate.

Additionally, the Global 8000 offers the lowest cabin altitude of any business jet today – a mere 2,900 feet when flying at 41,000 feet.

Development of the Global 8000 is progressing according to the manufacturer’s plan. Current Global 7500 operators can look forward to retrofitting their aircraft with these performance enhancements when the Global 8000 enters service in 2025.

The record-breaking flights from Farnborough to Muharraq (Catreus charter company) and Phoenix to Paris (Phenix Jet Cayman charter firm) further solidify the Global 7500’s position as a frontrunner in business jet performance and luxury.
