Bombardier’s Global 7500 Takes LA to NYC Speed Crown

On March 24, 2019, a Bombardier Global 7500 broke the speed record from Los Angeles to New York City, completing the flight in 3 hours and 54 minutes. The Global 7500 left Van Nuys Airport on Sunday at 7:01 a.m. local time and landed at Teterboro Airport at 1:55 p.m. local time, trimming 90 minutes off the average time.

Bombardier pilots Kerry Swanson and Andrew Sibenaler accomplished the feat. The Global 7500 reached a top speed of Mach 0.925, the 7500’s Maximum Mach Number (MMO), which it maintained for more than two hours in level flight. The record is pending certification from the National Aeronautic Association.

Meet the Global 7500: Speed, safety, luxury

Available from Canadian aircraft maker Bombardier Inc., the Global 7500 has a roughly $73 million price tag and began deliveries in December 2018. The aircraft won the 2019 Aviation Week Grand Laureate Award.

The aircraft that set the record — registered as C-FXAI — is production-level and serves as a demonstration aircraft.

“The Global 7500 aircraft is simply the best business jet on the market today,” said Bombardier Business Aircraft President David Coleal. “This latest speed record demonstrates once again that the Global 7500 jet is the undisputed leader in business aviation.”

The Global 7500 is the largest and longest-range private aircraft. It features four living spaces and a dedicated crew suite and kitchen. The interior is customizable with countless floor plan and furnishing options. Possible spaces include a club suite, conference suite (with a six-person table), entertainment suite, private suite, and en suite bath. The aircraft holds a maximum of 19 passengers.

The aircraft also boasts Bombardier’s signature Nuage seat, featuring deep recline, a floating base, and a tilting headrest. A new feature is the nice Touch cabin management system, which controls lighting, media, communications, and more.

Crew members also enjoy luxury aboard the Global 7500. The aircraft features the largest cockpit in the industry and a permanent side-facing jump seat. It’s equipped with Bombardier’s proven fly-by-wire system. The dedicated crew suite offers maximum comfort on long-range flights.

Mounting records for Bombardier

The Global 7500’s recent flight record comes on the heels of another honor for Bombardier, when a Global 7500 flew 8,152 nautical miles on a recent trip and set the record for the longest flight for a private jet. The Global 7500 flew from Singapore to Tucson, Arizona, and landed in 90 minutes with 4,300 pounds of fuel in reserve, meeting NBAA requirements.

The Global 7500 unseats the record set by General Dynamic Corp.’s Gulfstream G650 in November 2014. Until the Global 7500’s debut, the Gulfstream G650 was the uncontested standard in ultra-long-range business aircraft since its launch in December 2012.

The typical cruise speed for the Global 7500 is 0.85 mach. Its maximum range is listed as 7,700 nautical miles. A commercial flight from Los Angeles to New York City takes an average five and a half hours to complete.

Bombardier’s New Global 7500 is a Record-Setter

Bombardier has never been one to disappoint when it comes to producing the best of the best. For decades, this manufacturer has continually set new benchmarks not only in what’s possible from private aircraft but also in what’s expected of them. With the recent launch of the Bombardier Global 7500, the company has yet again inked its name in history with a record-setting, industry-changing jet.

A look at the Global 7500

The Global 7500 is a perfect marriage of practicality and luxury. It’s designed for the world of business on a global scale, catering to the luxury demands of the business elite.

The aircraft itself features a cabin segmented into four separate areas, great for business or leisure. The Nuage seat completely redefines comfort, enabling deep recline potential and plenty of neck and lumbar support. Turbo heating and cooling ensure total comfort at all times. Best of all, the cabin is completely controlled by touch technologies! In addition, it accommodates 19 comfortably.

On its luxury and aesthetic merits alone, the Global 7500 is a must-have for any owner seeking the pinnacle of excellence.

It passes more than just the eye test

Those familiar with Bombardier jets know they do a whole lot more than look great on the tarmac. The Global 7500 is no exception. In fact, this jet is now the owner of a world record: the world’s longest flight by a purpose-built business jet. It clocked 8,152 nautical miles from Singapore to Phoenix, direct. What’s more, it landed with 4,300 pounds of fuel — more than enough for an additional 90 minutes of flight time!

The record-setting flight shows off truly phenomenal potential by the Global 7500. The Singapore to Phoenix flight is just one example of its range. In a press release by the company, David Coleal, President of Bombardier Business Aircraft, lauded the jet:

“The Global 7500 aircraft was built to break all the records. It achieved the industry’s longest mission ever in business aviation after only two months in service. We’ve demonstrated its unequaled long-range and high-speed capabilities, but also its ability to break records confidently with healthy fuel reserves remaining, once again, confirming its unsurpassed performance to customers.”

With most of the globe open to a direct flight, Bombardier is giving international travelers an easier way to get to where they’re going. Potentially popular flight tracks include the ability to go from Miami to Dubai, New York to Hong Kong, Los Angeles to New Delhi, and more — all direct!

A growing trend in long-range aviation

Bombardier’s Global 7500 may hold the record for longest flight today, but it’s a record that’ll undoubtedly face challengers soon.

Bombardier’s own Global 8000 (which has faced delays) is expected to deliver flight mileage equal to its name. Gulfstream’s G650ER — which can log 7,500 nautical miles comfortably — has made a similar trip (Singapore to San Francisco) at a faster clip. Other manufacturers are also focusing on long-range jets, following the trend of global travel demands.

The world is getting smaller, especially for jet owners. Doing business across countries on a global scale is less of a burden than ever, thanks to jets that have little trouble traversing long distances. It’s a trend we’re likely to see more of, and Bombardier’s Global 7500 won’t be the last jet to break a distance record.

Here’s a brief overview of what you can expect with each new jet.

  • Global 5500 — As the company announced in late spring of this year, Bombardier anticipates the Global 5500 to enter service in late 2019. Featuring brand-new Rolls-Royce Pearl engines, the jet boasts top-notch fuel efficiency and, in turn, a reduced environmental footprint. Promising to continue the Global’s reputation for a smooth ride and long range, the 5500 features the next-generation Global wings and has a range of up to 5,700 nautical miles, up from the 5,200-nautical–mile range of the Global 5000. The Vision Flight Deck boasts the first business aviation application of a combined vision system, integrating infrared and synthetic vision. As for the passenger experience, Bombardier has integrated cutting-edge technology, including the first 4K-enabled cabin and Ka-band technology, connecting passengers fast and keeping them in touch no matter where they are.

  • Global 6500 — Similar to the 5500 in many respects, the Global 6500 promises many of the features you would expect from a Global jet, including the same patented Nuage seats and 100% fresh air as the Global 5500. Additionally, the 6500 will also boast an increased range, with a reach of 6,600 nautical miles. It will have the ability to connect London to Hong Kong and is the farthest-reaching jet in its class. In addition to sharing the new safety, comfort, and efficiency technology of the 5500, the Global 6500 includes many added comforts. The new jet will have the widest cabin in its class, offer the first en-suite standing shower, and come fully equipped with new cabinets and appliances in the deluxe kitchen.

  • Global 7500 — Unlike the 5500 and 6500, which should enter into service in the latter part of 2019, the Global 7500 is making its way into the market this year. The largest and longest-range in the world, this model is a rebranding of the 7000, which debuted in November 2016. Bombardier announced this change after the jet’s flight tests revealed an unprecedented range of 8,861 miles, according to the Robb Report article. The 7500 will be the first jet with Bombardier’s much-anticipated Nuage seats and comes in a variety of floor plans and features four separate living spaces. Bombardier plans to begin delivery of the 7500s later this year, following FAA certification, and the Bombardier completion center in Montreal received delivery of the first customer-owned 7500 in June.
