Bombardier unveils Soleil lighting system on its Global 7500
Winner of the 2019 Aviation Week Grand Laureate Award and a Red Dot award for design the Global 7500 aircraft is the largest and longest range business jet in the industry, offering Bombardier’s signature smooth ride and unrivalled cabin experience.
The Soleil lighting system offers the industry’s only Dynamic Daylight Simulation, which serves to help combat jet lag on long-distance flights. Aviation’s first fully integrated lighting technology uses specific combinations of red and blue light wavelengths that studies have shown stimulate or suppress melatonin, which influences sleep cycles.
Bombardier Business Aircraft has unveiled the Soleil lighting system, the industry’s most advanced cabin lighting technology on the business jet. Designed and developed exclusively for the Global 7500 aircraft, the innovative Soleil lighting system is aviation’s first circadian rhythm-based cabin lighting technology fully integrated with the Flight Management System, and it introduces the revolutionary Dynamic Daylight Simulation feature, which can help combat jet lag.
The Soleil lighting system is fully integrated into the Global 7500 aircraft’s nice Touch cabin management system, and can also be customized to a passenger’s preference for either extended sleep or productivity via the system’s unique circadian adjustment setting. The Soleil lighting system can also conveniently be programmed to schedule the optimal times for meal services, allowing the cabin crew to better prepare and plan more efficiently.
Incorporating twice the number of individual LEDs than other cabin lighting methods, the Soleil lighting system delivers the most vivid and high-definition colour rendering index (CRI) of any lighting system available today.
The Soleil lighting system is ideally suited to the Global 7500 aircraft which has demonstrated the capability for long-haul flights over 16 hours. The system is a standard feature on the Global 7500 aircraft, which entered into service in December 2018.
