Before this year is out, the first owner of the world’s longest-ranged business jet, the Bombardier Global 7500, will have taken delivery of the new aircraft. And while the 7500 epitomises the extreme performance and technological achievement of the business, executive and VIP aviation industry, in this issue we show just a little of its expansive diversity.
AirX proudly operates a luxurious 100-seat A340, while Oriens Aviation took the opportunity to showcase the PC-12NG, aircraft very much at opposite ends of the business. Meanwhile, On Air Dining and Web Manuals demonstrate the broad spectrum of companies supporting the industry’s multiple and far-ranging needs.
