Canadian-based Bombardier Aerospace is looking to find success with its upcoming, in-development "Global 7000" business market / VIP travel jet. To date, orders with Australia (AVWest), Canada (London Air Services), Switzerland (Comlux / VistaJet Holding SA) and the United States (NetJets) are confirmed though the program has experienced mounting delays to the point that service entry is not expected until sometime in 2018 - a full two years from the original plan. The aircraft will compete in the long-haul market covering such routes as Washington, D.C. to Beijing. It sees direct competition from offerings such as the Gulfstream G550/G650 family as well as Airbus and Boeing bizjet products.
Its outward configuration is traditional as business jets go. The aircraft seats its two all-new General Electric "Passport" turbofans (developed specifically for the Global 7000 platform) on stub wings to either side of the aft fuselage and these engines represent a high-bypass design engineered to deliver 16,500 lb of thrust while promising improved fuel efficiency and reduced emissions output. The cockpit is accordingly held at the extreme front of the tubular fuselage and is of an all-glass approach for its crew of two. Side-stick controlling is the standard as is Fly-By-Wire (FBW) assistance. The passenger section can seat eight in luxurious comfort and sports four separate living quarters. A crew sleeping area has been added as well. The wing mainplanes are low-mounted appendages and swept back while being capped by winglets as another efficiency measure. The tail unit is of single-finned design with high-mounted horizontal planes fitted and forming a traditional "T" shape.
The current Bombardier Global lineup includes the Global Express, Global 5000 and Global 6000 as well as the upcoming Global 7000 and Global 8000 marks.
November 2016: The Global 7000 completed its first-flight.
January 2018 - A fifth Global 7000 prototype has made it into the air for flight testing. This took place on January 30th, 2018. Service entry is still planned for the latter-half of 2018.
May 2018 - Bombardier has redesignated its Global 7000 product line as the Global 7500.
September 2018 - the Global 7500 has received its Canadian type certification.
