Bombardier has announced that its Global 7500, successfully completed the longest-range business jet flight in history, with a 8,152-nautical-mile non-stop flight, at the beginning of March.
The award-winning business jet departed from Singapore Changi Airport at 7:12 and arrived at Tucson International Airport at 8:19, earning the long-range speed record flight for the city-pair.
“The Global 7500 aircraft was built to break all the records,” said David Coleal, president of Bombardier Business Aircraft. “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 a top speed of Mach 0.925, the aircraft has shown its ability to fly further than any other business jet with its advertised range of 7,700 nautical miles.
The Global 7500 aircraft features a full-size kitchen and four true living spaces. The aircraft also debuts Bombardier’s patented Nuage seat, which was meticulously designed for maximum comfort and will be exclusive to the new Global family of aircraft.
Since the beginning of the year, the Global 7500 has completed more than 170 hours of flight around the world.
