Global Aircraft

All-Weather Performers

The Global aircraft’s Smooth Flĕx Wing’s design, which is optimized for both high and low speed landing, allows much shorter landing distances and less corrections for typical weather conditions like wind or rain.

The All-Weather Performer​​

Pitkin County Airport located in Aspen, Colorado (USA) and St-Moritz Airport in Switzerland are difficult airfields with a relatively short runway at high elevation. See how Global aircraft landing distance compares to its closest competitor in typical wind and rain conditions.

On a dry runway, it is mandatory for commercial operators and good practice for private operators to land in 60% of the runway within a target safety margin.​

For a landing on wet runways, aircraft manufacturers calculate and recommend landing distances to include important safety margins. In this scenario, the competitor aircraft will not be able to land in Aspen when flying as a commercial operator. They would need to land at a farther, alternative airfield.

Assumptions:
1 Landing weight: Standard Configuration BOW + 1,800 lb of payload (8 passengers) + 5,000 lb of fuel reserve. Temperature of ISA+15°C Landing on runway. Steady winds coming from W at 6 kts, gusting up to 13 kts (March at St-Moritz).
2 Landing weight: Standard Configuration BOW + 1,800 lb. of payload (8 passengers) + 5,000 lb. of reserve fuel. Temperature of ISA+15C Landing on runway. Steady winds coming from NNW at 8 kts, gusting up to 22 kts (July at Aspen).
