Detailing the development and operational history of the Bombardier Global 7500 (Global 7000) Business / VIP Passenger Jet. Entry last updated on 7/10/2018. Authored by Staff Writer. Content ©www.MilitaryFactory.com
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.
