Bombardier announced that the Global 7500 has proved its performance by breaking a significant speed record between Los Angeles and New York, a key city pair.
The award-winning Global 7500 business jet left Van Nuys Airport at 7:01 a.m. local time on March 24, 2019, and arrived at Teterboro Airport at 1:55 p.m. local time, completing the coast-to-coast mission in three hours and 54 minutes, beating the previously held record established by a competing aircraft manufacturer and making it the fastest business jet ever to complete this route (performed under certain operating conditions.) During the flight, the aircraft reached a top speed of Mach 0.925 (approximately 1142 kilometres per hour) and sustained that speed for more than two hours, demonstrating its top speed capabilities.
“The Global 7500 aircraft is simply the best business jet on the market today,” said David Coleal, president of Bombardier Business Aircraft. “The latest speed record demonstrates once again that the Global 7500 jet is the undisputed leader in business aviation.”
Since its entry-into-service, the Global 7500 has proven itself to be one of the highest-performing aircraft in the industry. With its speed and range capabilities as well as a record-setting 8,152-nautical-mile flight under its belt–the longest flight in business aviation–the Global 7500 continues to blaze the trail in this new market segment, setting the bar for excellence and performance in the world of business aviation.
The Global 7500’s in-flight experience offers Bombardier’s patented Nuage seat, designed for maximum comfort and Bombardier’s nice Touch cabin management system (CMS), a way to connect with the Global 7500 cabin through the Bombardier Touch dial, featuring business aviation’s first application of an OLED display.
