The Bombardier Global 7000 and Global 8000 are ultra long-range business jets under development by Bombardier Aerospace, announced on october 16, 2010 and initially scheduled for introduction in 2016 for the 7000 and 2017 for the 8000.[1] The program has been delayed by 24 months, although some clients are delayed by up to 36 months. Entry into service for the Global 7000 is expected in 2018, and the Global 8000 in 2019.

Design and development[edit]

Global 7000[edit]

The Global 7000 is planned to have a four-zone cabin, with a volume of 2,637 cu.ft. (74.67 cu.m.), 20 percent more than the cabin of the current model. The aircraft is planned to 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 engine to deliver efficiency and emissions advantages,expected to show reduced NOx emissions and an eight per cent increase in overall fuel efficiency when compared to the industry leading Global Express XRS aircraft. It is planned to be able to fly from London to Kuala Lumpur, New York to Dubai, or Beijing to Washington non-stop with 10 passengers. Entry into service is scheduled for 2018.[1][2] Formula One Austrian driver Niki Lauda, a long time brand ambassador for Bombardier, announced placing an order for this model ahead of EBACE 2015 convention.[3]

Global 8000[edit]

The Global 8000, planned to be able to fly farther than any other existing 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 also be powered by the next-generation GE Passport 20 16,500 lbf (73 kN) thrust engine. It is planned to be able to connect Sydney to Los Angeles, Hong Kong to New York, and Mumbai to New York non-stop with eight passengers, and to reach a high-speed cruise of Mach 0.90. Entry into service is scheduled for 2019.[1]
