FAA certified the Bombardier Global 7500
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certified the Global 7500 aircraft manufactured by the Canadian company Bombardier, which is approaching the date of launch of this private jet later this year.
"Obtaining the Global 7500 aircraft Type Certification from the FAA marks one of the final chapters in our very successful development program," said Stephen McCullough, Bombardier's Vice President of Integrated Product Development for the Global 7500 and Global 8000 Program. "Achieving this latest milestone is a direct result of the commitment to excellence of the highly-skilled employees who worked on the program and our solid collaboration with our suppliers."
This aircraft has performance improvements to takeoff and landing, which allows it to operate in complicated aerodromes and adverse weather conditions such as those of the Chicago Executive, in the United States.
Also, its reach of 14 thousand 260 kilometers (7 thousand 700 nautical miles) allows you to fly between New York and Hong Kong or Singapore and San Francisco without having to make stops.
"This milestone is the latest accomplishment for our award-winning Global 7500 business jet, which has been exceeding expectations on every level," said Michel Ouellette, Senior Vice President, Global 7500 and Global 8000 Program, Bombardier Business Aircraft. "The Global 7500 business jet has proven itself as the highest-performing aircraft in the industry and promises to revolutionize the market and significantly change the business aviation landscape."
Announced in October 2010, these aircraft have seen their commercial introduction delayed a couple of years by the certification process.
The cost of the Global 7500 is 72 million dollars, while the Global 8000 starts from 71 million.
