The New Bombardier Global Jets
This week, Bombardier announced the introduction of two new business jet models, the Global 7000 and the Global 8000. The new jets, set to be delivered in the year 2016 and 2017, are also the most expensive jets in the industry. With a $65 million dollar price tag, these new private jets will cost more than the $58.5 million Gulfstream G650.
The new Global jets are designed with a 4-zone cabin and seats up 10 to 19 passengers comfortably. Powered by next-generation GE engines, the Global 7000 business jet can fly 7,300 nautical miles while the Global 8000 offers a range of 7,900 nautical miles. With this range, they can make nonstop trips from New York to India or Los Angeles to Australia. The Global 8000 cabin is over 50 feet long and 8 feet wide – making it the largest cabin in its class. These jets will also lead the industry in terms of low fuel burn and low emissions, a sign that aircraft companies are making steps toward creating better fuel efficient jets. In addition, they are also fully equipped with the latest navigation technology - including an advanced cabin management system.
According to Brad Nolan, the Director of Product Planning for Bombardier Business Aircraft, the jets were developed in response to the rapid economic growth in India, China and Latin America. These new long range jets offer the perfect corporate travel solution for those who conduct business in these countries. The other models currently in the Bombardier Global aircraft family include the Global 5000 and the Global Express XRS.
