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
"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.
