Bombardier has delivered the first Global 7500 to a three-time Formula 1 World Drivers' Champion Niki Lauda and racks up speed records.
We are thrilled to deliver our flagship Global 7500 business jet to Niki Lauda, our esteemed customer for many years,” said David Coleal, President, Bombardier Business Aircraft. “The Global 7500 aircraft is simply the best business jet on the market. It sets the standard by which all other aircraft in private aviation will be measured, demonstrated by the prestigious design and aviation awards it has garnered. The Global 7500 aircraft is the crown jewel of the industry
Bombardier flagship Global 7500, this time set one on a flight from Westchester County Airport (HPN) in White Plains, New York, to London Luton Airport (LTN) on March 27. The Global 7500 departed HPN at 6:26 a.m. local time Wednesday and arrived at LTN at 3:52 p.m. local time, a transatlantic trip that has completed in 5 hours and 26 minutes “under seasonal winds,” Bombardier announced, adding the Global 7500 reached the aircraft’s top speed of Mach 0.925 and averaged Mach 0.92.

Winner of the 2019 Aviation Week Grand Laureate Award, the Global 7500 aircraft offers Bombardier’s signature smooth ride and spaciousness that is unique among business jets.
I have enjoyed watching the evolution and growth of the Global Aircraft programme. I have always been impressed with the expertise, craftsmanship, and innovation that go into building every Global business jet,” said Niki Lauda. “The Global 7500 aircraft is the culmination of all the knowledge Bombardier teams have gained over the years and I look forward to experiencing the range, speed, and comfort this jet has to offer.
The Global 7500 jet is the latest in a series of Bombardier business aircraft that Mr. Lauda has owned and piloted during his career as an aviator. Previously, he operated a Global 6000, Global 5000 and Challenger 300 jet as his private aircraft.
The Global 7500 aircraft is simply the best business jet on the market today,” said David Coleal, President, Bombardier Business Aircraft. “The latest speed record demonstrates once again that the Global 7500 jet is the undisputed leader in business aviation.
