Performance is about more than getting from point A to point B – it’s also a matter of speed, efficiency and comfort. Bombardier Business Aircraft created the Global 5000 and Global 6000 with this mix in mind, beginning with clean-sheet interior design. Unifying these aircraft with the new Global 7000 and Global 8000 models was a key design theme, and the result is both modern and timeless – and noticeable as soon as you step onto the aircraft. The galley has been remade in the image of a Michelin-starred kitchen, with a logical layout and focus on clean lines. Elegant hardwood flooring (as well as optional stone tile in the forward and aft lavatories) continues the look and feel of fine interior design without compromise.
In the cabin, side ledges’ crisp straight lines contrast with reimagined seats, contributing to the overall mission of a smooth ride. Each ergonomic seat is sculpted to the human body and enhanced with hand-stitched details inspired by high-end automotive design. The new interior is the culmination of a series of meticulously crafted enhancements, including a new cabin management system and Ka-band connectivity, the industry’s fastest high-speed internet.
The superior flying experience isn’t just for passengers, either – pilots and crew benefit, too. In the cockpit, the revolutionary Bombardier Vision flight deck combines outstanding ergonomics and aesthetics to provide pilots with an unprecedented level of comfort and control.
Brushed metallic flight instrumentation and carbon fiber accents create a stylish environment, and with the most advanced avionics suite currently available in business aviation, pilot workload is significantly reduced, ensuring safer and more efficient missions. Crew also get their own dedicated, fully enclosed area, meaning they are there working for you, whenever you need them – just like Global aircraft.
Another highlight of the Global 5000 and Global 6000: their class-leading combination of speed, range and dependability. The Global 5000 has a maximum range of 5,200 nautical miles (9,630 kilometers), while the Global 6000 goes the extra distance with a maximum range of 6,000 nautical miles (11,112 kilometers). Combined with an impressive top speed of Mach 0.89, this means that your non-stop mission from New York to Moscow can be completed without missing a beat. With advanced wing design, powerful engines and oversized carbon brakes, both aircraft are steep-approach-certified for operating in and out of challenging airports like London City and Aspen. The bottom line: Challenging and short runways won’t keep you from arriving at your destination.
Boarding a Global 5000 or Global 6000 means settling in to the most comfortable and refreshing in-flight experience a business jet can offer. Superior soundproofing materials make for lowest-in-class noise levels. Low-altitude cabin pressurization and an advanced air management system can quickly regulate the cabin temperature, providing 100 percent fresh air at all times and leaving you feeling energized. Whether you’re conducting a business meeting or getting a peaceful night’s sleep, these aircraft have been carefully designed to be the smoothest part of your day. With a cabin that measures almost a foot (30 centimeters) wider than the nearest competitor, and with exceptionally wide seating and broad tables, the Global 5000 and Global 6000 also provide ample room for everyone aboard to move around freely – even with a full complement of 17 passengers and crew. A cleverly designed, high-capacity luggage compartment remains safely accessible throughout the flight, so you can get whatever you need, whenever you need it.
Business and leisure get equal attention with Ka-band technology, meaning that lightning-fast, reliable internet is always available for work or play. With access to the world’s fastest in-flight connectivity and multiple data package options, you and your fellow passengers can display documents, videoconference, live-stream or even play online games using the Global 5000 and Global 6000’s largest-in-class HD TV monitors. When it’s time to relax, devices such as Blu-ray players, gaming consoles and tablets can all be connected in the large media bay. Mobile devices using iOS and Android can also be paired with Bombardier’s highly intuitive Cabin Management System (CMS) in order to access work and entertainment content or to adjust cabin settings. Side ledges at each seat reveal cup holders and outlets that both charge and hold your personal devices, meaning a truly immersive entertainment experience or a productive business session is always at your fingertips.
