The Bombardier Global 7000 made its air show debut at National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) Conference and Exhibition in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The Global 7000 on show was the first with a fitted interior, and according to Bombardier will be used to evaluate the Global 7000’s passenger experience including its cabin management and in-flight entertainment systems.
The aircraft is expected to be one of the most capable business jets to-date and a number of options for interior completion are available for prospective owners including custom interior design and completion.
For those interested in custom interior completions, as part of its launch George Tsopeis, Presdient of Zenith Jet produced a white paper guide to completion options and oversight for the interior of the Global 7000 business jet.
Bombardier is currently preparing the fifth and final flight test aircraft at its factory in Toronto, Canada.
The manufacturer commented: “Our Global 7000 flight test vehicles continue to undergo rigorous testing at our world-class flight test center in Wichita, Kansas,” Bombardier vice president of product development, François Caza said in a statement. “Having now flown nearly 900 hours, the aircraft continue to perform extremely well and to exhibit a high level of reliability.”
“Areas of the flight envelope and the performance of the systems, including at extreme temperatures, have been tested. The results show a maturity which is in full support of the planned certification activities.”
