Bombardier Global 7000
|Developed from||Bombardier Global 5000/6000|
The Bombardier Global 7000 and Global 8000 are ultra long-range corporate and VIP high speed jet aircraft produced by Bombardier Aerospace. Entry into service for the Global 7000 is expected in 2016, and the Global 8000 in 2017.
Design and development
The Global 7000 will feature a spacious four-zone cabin. With a volume of 2,637 cu.ft. (74.67 cu.m.), passengers will have 20 percent more living space than the cabin of the current model. The aircraft will have a high-speed cruise of Mach 0.90 and a range of 7,300 nmi (13,520 km) at Mach 0.85. It will be powered by the next-generation General Electric Passport 20 16,500 lbf (73 kN) thrust engines to deliver significant efficiency and emissions advantages, including reduced NOx emissions and an eight per cent overall fuel efficiency when compared to the industry leading Global Express XRS aircraft. It will be able to fly from London to Singapore, New York to Dubai or Beijing to Washington non-stop with 10 passengers. Entry into service is scheduled for 2016.
The Global 8000, able to fly farther than any other business jet, will feature a three-zone 2,236 cu.ft. (63.32 cu.m.) cabin and a range of 7,900 nmi (14,631 km) at Mach 0.85. It will be powered by the next-generation GE Passport 20 16,500 lbf (73 kN) thrust engines to deliver significant efficiency and emissions advantages, including reduced NOx emissions and an eight per cent overall fuel efficiency when compared to the industry leading Global Express XRS aircraft. It will connect Sydney to Los Angeles, Hong Kong to New York and Mumbai to New York non-stop with eight passengers. The Global 8000 jet will reach a high-speed cruise of Mach 0.90. Entry into service is scheduled for 2017.
