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. 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
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 increase in overall fuel efficiency when compared to the industry leading Global Express XRS aircraft. It will 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. Formula One Austrian driver Niki Lauda, who is a long time brand ambassador for Bombardier, announced placing an order for this model ahead of EBACE 2015 convention.
The Global 8000, 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 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 increase in 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 2019.
Bombardier plans to add an extra fuel tank option, allowing the aircraft to fly up to 18,400 km on Jet A-1 and BioKerosene. This range is longer than any business, freight or commercial jet.
