The Bombardier Global Express is a large cabin, ultra long range business jet manufactured by Bombardier Aerospace.


Bombardier Global Express

Design and development

Bombardier Aerospace began studies in 1991 and the aircraft was officially launched in 1993. The first flight occurred on October 13, 1996. The Global Express shares the Canadair / Bombardier Regional Jet's fuselage cross section and is similar in length, but despite the size similarities the two aircraft are very different due to the nature of their roles. The Global Express features an advanced all new supercritical airfoil with a 35° sweep and winglets, plus a new T-tail. The aircraft is powered by two BMW RollsRoyce BR-710 turbofans with FADEC. The advanced flightdeck features a six screen Honeywell Primus 2000 XP EFIS suite and is offered with optional heads-up displays.

The Global 5000 (model designation BD-700-1A11) is a derivative based on Global Express, with 813 mm (32 in) reduction in forward fuselage length, and 1,200 nmi reduction in maximum range. Seating capacity is up to 19 passengers. The aircraft was announced on 25 October 2001 with the official launch on 5 February 2002, after a positive market assessment with letters of intent for 15 aircraft.

You are definitely intrigued to discover Bombardier Global.

The maximum certified altitude is 51,000 ft (16,000 m) The typical approach speed is 108 kn (200 km/h) requiring approximately 2,600 ft (790 m) of runway for landing.

Global 5000 changes compared to the Global Express are:

Fuselage shortened by 813 mm (32 in).

Removal of the fuel tank in the tail and limiting fuel in the wings.

Rearrangement of some avionics to gain usable cabin length.

Allowance for interior completions (3,200 kg).

Bombardier Global Express

The Global 6000 (formerly marketed as the Global Express XRS) is an improved version of the original aircraft, (announced on October 6, 2003 during the NBAA Convention at Orlando, Florida) offering higher cruise speed, increased range, improved cabin layout and lighting. Bombardier’s Vision flight deck, powered by Rockwell Collins Pro Line Fusion avionics, is perhaps the biggest upgrade from the XRS to the 6000 and compared to its predecessor, the Global XRS, it has improved acoustical insulation.
