Bombardier Business Aircraft announced that its flagship Global 7500 aircraft, the largest, most luxurious and longest range business jet ever built, has been awarded Transport Canada Type Certification, paving the way for entry-into-service this year.
Certification by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) is expected to follow shortly.
“Thanks to the rigour and innovation of our design and test program, the Global 7500 aircraft has succeeded in elevating every standard by which a business jet is measured – comfort, luxury, performance and a smooth ride.
"At entry-into-service, this aircraft will meet the latest and all of the most stringent certification requirements and is set to redefine international business jet travel."
“Canadian aerospace products have a well-deserved global reputation for quality, value and reliability. The certification of the Bombardier Global 7500 aircraft is a significant accomplishment that will create good quality jobs for Canadians and support the continued growth of the local and regional economies where these aircraft are built,” said the Honourable Marc Garneau, Canada’s Minister of Transport.
The Global 7500 aircraft boasts an unmatched range of 7,700 nautical miles, a full 300 nautical miles further than initial commitments, and it is the only business aircraft that can connect New York to Hong Kong, and Singapore to San Francisco, nonstop.
