The Honourable Marc Garneau, Minister of Transport, today announced that Transport Canada has certified the newest Bombardier business aircraft, the Global 7500 jet.
This certification represents the approval of the design, airworthiness limitations, and operating conditions of the aircraft designed and manufactured by Bombardier in Canada. Bombardier can now take important steps to deliver the Global 7500 to customers worldwide.
This project was a significant undertaking and saw strong collaboration between Transport Canada and Bombardier officials. This is another example of a continued commitment of the department to work with the aerospace industry to foster growth and innovation.
“Canadian aerospace products have a well-deserved global reputation for quality, value and reliability. The certification of the Bombardier Global 7500 aircraft is a significant accomplishment that will create good quality jobs for Canadians and support the continued growth of the local and regional economies where these aircraft are built,” said the minister.
