On March 3, 2019, the Global 7500 aircraft completed the longest mission ever flown by a purpose-built business jet by flying 8,152 nm. The flight also sets the record* for speed over the longest range, connecting Singapore to Tuscon, AZ with fuel to spare.

The award-winning business jet provides the industry’s largest cabin and best cabin experience, perfectly suited for trans-oceanic journeys and an exceptionally smooth ride.

The Global 7500 was commissioned on December 20, 2018. Designed for long intercontinental flights, it has the industry's largest cockpit for business jets and a maximum speed of Mach 0.925. The flight this week exceeded the stated range of the aircraft at 7700 nm.

“The Global 7500 was created to break all records,” commented David Cole, president of Bombardier Business Aircraft. “He has achieved the longest mission in the business aviation industry after just two months of work.” We have demonstrated its unsurpassed long-range and speed capabilities, as well as the ability to confidently beat records, while maintaining healthy reserves of fuel, once again confirming its unsurpassed performance for customers. 

«Global 7500 was conceived as a penthouse in the sky, so now among all business jets it has the status of the only airliner with four passenger zones and a recreation area for the crew. In the plane, you can find both essentials and special devices that provide comfort in flight.

On board there is a bedroom, a conference room or a living room, work offices with internet access, a fully equipped kitchen and a shower. Nuage Seat passenger seats with a smooth transformation system provide comfort in any position.

The interior is designed in warm colors. Salon flooded with natural light due to the increased portholes. At dusk night lighting is turned on. With the help of the Nice Touch system built into the on-board interior, you can adjust the air temperature and the brightness of the interior lighting, as well as the volume of the speakers. Equipped with OLED displays, the devices are built into the trim next to the seats. You can manage them from a tablet or smartphone.
