- Industry’s largest and longest range business jet, the Global 7500 aircraft is in a class of its own and entered into service in 2018
- EASA certification allows the Global 7500 aircraft to be registered in a European Union country
- Global 7500 aircraft offers Bombardier’s signature smooth ride and superior field performance, perfect for operating from key challenging airports in Europe
Bombardier is proud to announce that the industry flagship business jet, the Global 7500 aircraft, has received European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) certification, validating the requirement for the aircraft’s operation in Europe.
“We’ve transformed business aviation with the Global 7500 jet,” said Michel Ouellette, Senior Vice President, Program Management and Engineering, Bombardier Business Aircraft. “With the longest range in the industry, the aircraft can connect more international cities nonstop, opening many destinations to our customers.”
The Global 7500 business jet earned its type certification from Transport Canada in September 2018, followed by the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in November 2018, both within only 24 months after the first flight of FTV1. The aircraft entered service in December 2018.
The Global 7500 aircraft has demonstrated its ability to fly further than any other business jet by expanding its advertised range to 7,700 nautical miles, a full 300 nautical miles further than initial commitments. Not only does the Global 7500 aircraft provide more range than any other competitor, it can do so from the most difficult locations around the world: the Global 7500 jet exceeded takeoff and landing performance commitments, allowing for exceptional capability from Europe’s most desirable and challenging destinations such as Sion and St. Moritz, Switzerland*. These achievements have enabled the Global 7500 aircraft to push the boundaries of business travel by resetting the bar for long-haul missions in the industry. The Global 7500 aircraft is the only business jet that connects New York to Hong Kong and Singapore to San Francisco nonstop, flying eight passengers with standard NBAA IFR fuel reserves.*
The Global 7500 aircraft offers not only its signature smooth ride, but also an elevated cabin experience, with spaciousness that is unique among business jets, and its award-winning interior featuring a full-size kitchen and four true living spaces. The Global 7500 aircraft also debuts Bombardier’s patented Nuage seat, which was meticulously designed for maximum comfort and will be exclusive to the new Global family of aircraft.
