New seat architecture revealed by Bombardier


Bombardier has unveiled a new seat, with a completely new architecture, which will feature on the Global 7000.

The Nuage seat boasts a deep recline position whereby a patented tilt link system dips the seat as the back is reclined, which Bombardier says keeps the passenger fully supported with no added pressure on their legs.

The seat also has a floating base, which allows the seat to track and swivel without visible floor rails.

There is also a tilting headrest – which Bombardier contends is unavailable on any other business aviation seat. Customers can specify from a wide range of leathers, fabrics and finishes.

“In designing the Nuage seat, we examined every conceivable passenger need and comfort that might arise while seated in flight and launched our process from there,” said Peter Likoray, senior vice president, sales and marketing, Bombardier Business Aircraft.

“This empathetic design philosophy inspired us to craft a seat unlike any other – the most innovative seat the industry has seen in three decades. Offering an unprecedented balance of comfort and control, Nuage is an ergonomic and aesthetic masterpiece that redefines the very notion of seated comfort for life above the clouds.”

The Global 7000 is scheduled to enter service in the second half of 2018. Bombardier highlights the aircraft’s smooth ride, four living spaces, Ka-band connectivity, and multi-functional galley as key features. The aircraft recently won a 2018 Red Dot Award for product design.
