Bombardier today celebrated more impressive speed records on the Global 7500 aircraft, bringing the total to more than 30 and counting. The most recent records, including travelling from Farnborough to Muharraq and Phoenix to Paris, mark the latest accomplishment for the Global 7500 business jet, the undisputed leader in the ultra-long-range class – the most luxurious, reliable and productive business jet in the skies today.

These records – pending approval by the FAI, the World Air Sport Federation – build on earlier speed and distance records already bestowed on this truly remarkable business jet, including an 8,225 nautical mile flight in October 2019 from Sydney, Australia to Detroit, Michigan – the longest-range flight ever in business aviation. The Global 7500 also set more than 20 new flight records (1) in the fall of 2023, including routes from Singapore to Anchorage, Alaska and Montreal to Geneva.

“The Global 7500 aircraft is in a class by itself when it comes to performance – an immaculate business jet that was made to set and shatter records,” said Jean-Christophe Gallagher, Executive Vice President, Aircraft Sales and Bombardier Defense. “With its impeccable design attributes and technological advancements, the Global 7500 aircraft offers customers precisely what they need to enhance their operations – unmatched reliability, productivity and style.”

With a top speed of Mach 0.925 and an industry leading range of 7,700 nautical miles (14,260 km), the Global 7500 aircraft features outstanding performance capabilities. Its Smooth Flex Wing is designed with a sophisticated slats and flap system that generates exceptional lift on takeoff and approach, maximizing aerodynamic efficiency and boosting performance while improving safety and offering a smoother, more restful ride. It also reduces fuel burn and lowers emissions and produces excellent short-field and high-speed performance.

The industry-defining Global 7500 jet is equally impressive when it comes to cabin design. With its stunning, spacious interior featuring four true living spaces, a full-size, superbly equipped kitchen and a dedicated crew suite, it offers customers the ultimate in-flight experience. Other innovative design elements set the benchmark for the most exceptional cabin interior in business aviation, including Bombardier’s patented Nuage seat, which features the industry’s first zero-gravity position. In short, the aircraft is the ultimate home in the sky, a reliable, productive business tool with its ultra-fast internet capabilities and impeccably designed cabins.

Bombardier is also very pleased to share that the incredible attributes of the Global 7500 aircraft will be enhanced even more with the introduction of the Global 8000 (2) aircraft, announced in 2022. Bombardier’s flagship of a new era will boast an industry-leading range of 8,000 nautical miles and an unbeatable top speed of Mach 0.94, making it the ultimate all-in-one business aircraft. The discerning Global 8000 business jet also features the healthiest cabin in the industry, with Bombardier’s Pur Air and advanced HEPA filter technology for the cleanest cabin air and the fastest fresh air replacement. It also features the lowest cabin altitude of 2,900 feet when flying at 41,000 ft. – lower than any business jet today.

Bombardier’s Global 8000 aircraft development is ongoing and the program is progressing to plan. Additionally, for current Global 7500 operators, the incredible performance enhancements on the Global 8000 will be retrofittable when the aircraft enters into service, currently expected in 2025 (3) , making it a future-proof investment and the flagship for today and tomorrow

The Global 7500 flight record from Farnborough to Muharraq was set by charter company Catreus. The Global 7500 record from Phoenix to Paris was set by charter firm Phenix Jet Cayman. These remarkable accomplishments further affirm the proven attributes of this amazing aircraft – one that has thoroughly transformed business aviation with its refined design, unsurpassed performance and outstanding technological advancements.
