The Bombardier Global 7000 flight test program has begun following the successful maiden flight of the first flight test vehicle (FTV1). The large jet is scheduled to enter service in the second half of 2018. The aircraft will offer four living spaces and a dedicated crew area, with a range of 7,400 nautical miles at Mach 0.85 with eight passengers.
“The first flight is the culmination of an incredible amount of knowledge and experience from our dedicated employees, partners and suppliers,” said David Coleal, president, Bombardier Business Aircraft.
“This is a very proud moment for Bombardier and confirms the Global 7000 aircraft program development is on schedule. It is the industry’s most innovative and uniquely designed business jet and the only aircraft on the market to offer four living spaces for unparalleled comfort and flexibility, creating an unforgettable experience for our customers. The Global 7000 business jet’s impressive capabilities promise to establish a whole new category for large business jets.”
