Bombardier Delivers 150th Global

Fast, Comfortable And Selling Like Hotcakes

Bombardier Tuesday said it's delivered into service the 150th Global aircraft. The Bombardier Global 5000 business jet was delivered on August 26 to Dwight Management of St Paul, Minnesota. It was the third Bombardier Global 5000 aircraft to be delivered into service.

"The delivery into service of our 150th Global aircraft is a landmark occasion for this leading family of aircraft, and the promise of more great things to come," said Duncan Koerbel, vice-president and general manager, Global product line. "We have more than 15 Global aircraft currently in completion, and strong worldwide market interest in both the Bombardier Global 5000 and the Global Express XRS business jets. Our assembly operations in Downsview, Ontario are ramping up along with our partner completion centers to meet this demand."

The Bombardier Global aircraft family has earned high praise from customers since the first ultra long-range Global Express business jet entered service. The Global platform - with its superior power-generation capabilities and significantly larger cabin - has demonstrated its capabilities through 16 world records, several of which were established by customers.

Launched in February 2002, the high-speed Bombardier Global 5000 business jet combines superior comfort, speed and the most technologically advanced cabin in the super large segment. The aircraft is capable of executing transcontinental missions at speeds up to Mach 0.89 - faster than any other aircraft in its class. The aircraft features the first-ever Ethernet-based Airshow 21 Cabin Electronic System application, including a host of entertainment options and baseline high-speed data connectivity. The first Bombardier Global 5000 aircraft entered customer service in April 2005.

Launched in October 2003, the Global Express XRS ultra long-range business jet takes the superior performance of the revolutionary Global Express aircraft even further, offering the ultimate level of cabin comfort, refinement and technology, with even more range and at higher speed. Green aircraft deliveries began in 2005.
