Bombardier’s Global 7500 aircraft has received European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) certification, validating the requirement for the aircraft’s operation in Europe.
The Global 7500 business jet earned its type certification from Transport Canada in September 2018, followed by the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in November 2018. The aircraft entered service in December 2018.
Bombardier says the Global 7500 aircraft can fly further than any other business jet as it expanded its advertised range to 7,700 nautical miles, 300 nautical miles further than initial commitments. The company also notes that the aircraft can fly from challenging destinations such as Sion and St. Moritz, Switzerland, in certain conditions.
Industry’s longest range
The Global 7500 is the only business jet that connects New York to Hong Kong and Singapore to San Francisco non-stop, flying eight passengers with standard NBAA IFR fuel reserves.
“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 non-stop, opening many destinations to our customers.”
