Bombardier Celebrates 150th Global 7500 Delivery…
Commenting on the 150th Global 7500 delivery was Eric Martel, the President & CEO of Bombardier:
“Our team is truly proud of and excited about the success of the Global 7500 aircraft program reaching its 150th-built aircraft.”
“It is the undisputed leader in business aviation today that has garnered top awards since its smooth entry into service in 2018”.
“The Global 7500 aircraft is the largest ultra-long-range business aircraft in the skies and its continued success is a testament to the efforts of our incredibly talented teams that build these amazing aircraft.”
“Our continued success is absolutely related to their unrivalled dedication and commitment to excellence in everything they do.”
Within the 7500 program, up to 20 speed & distance test missions have been conducted, boasting accolades such as a 99.8% dispatch reliability, to being able to cover a distance from Sydney to Detroit, coming in at 8,225 nautical miles.
Based off the successes of that program, Bombardier is currently developing the Global 8000 series, which is expected to cover 8,000 nautical miles on a top speed of Mach 0.94, and is expected to enter service in 2025.
All eyes will be on the manufacturer for the release of that aircraft type.
