Bombardier showcases Global 7000, Global 8000 at NBAA 2010

The arms race for the largest, fastest and most ultra-range business jet continued Monday at the 2010 NBAA Annual Meeting & Convention.

As Cessna showed off its revamped Citation Ten and Gulfstream touted its G650 heading into the start of the convention, Bombardier unveiled a pair of ultra-long-range editions to its Global line.

The Global 7000 will  span 2,637 cubic feet across a four-zone cabin, a high-cruise speed of Mach 0.9 and a range of 7,300 NM at Mach 0.85, while the Global 8000 will feature a three-zone-2,236 cubic-foot cabin and a range of 7,900 NM at Mach 0.85.

Both are on display with the rest of the Global line at the Bombardier static display.


“The Global 7000 and Global 8000 jets will give our customers the ability to reach more destinations non-stop than ever before, delivering unprecedented levels of performance, flexibility, and comfort,” said Bombardier President Steve Ridolfi in a company statement. “There has never been a better time to ‘Be Global.’”
