Bombardier says it still plans to deliver 15-20 Global 7500s this year, despite having so far handed over only three of the GE Aviation Passport-powered business jets.

Three more examples of the ultra-long-range twin will be shipped in the third quarter, said Bombardier chief executive Alain Bellemare, speaking on a 1 August half-year results call, with the remainder to follow in the final three months of 2019.

“We have 16 aircraft right now that are in our completion centre here in Montreal, and it’s really progressing well. Actually completion is progressing little bit better than planned, so our level of confidence is good,” he says.

Bellemare says that as a brand-new aircraft – having entered service in late 2018 – there was always going to be some uncertainty around the Global 7500’s delivery profile, but adds that overall “we’re making very good, solid progress”.

Bellemare says that 2019 deliveries are “backend loaded”, to allow a smooth service entry for the new jet, ensure its performance and minimise “the risk for potential retrofit”.

Bellemare praises the jet’s “tremendous capabilities”, noting that it continues to set records “in terms of range, in terms of speed”.

As production continues to ramp up, deliveries should rise to 35-40 Global 7500s in 2020, he adds.

Overall business jet deliveries stood at 35 in the quarter, a one-unit increase over the same period a year earlier, and included two light jets, 17 midsize jets and 16 large jets.

“Our [business aviation] financial performance was right on plan for the second quarter and is tracking to our full-year guidance,” Bellemare says.

Certification and delivery of the re-engiend Global 5500 and 6500 – both powered by new Rolls-Royce Pearl 15 engines – are still “on track” for later this year.

Bellemare points out that Bombardier is continuing to “enhance” its product portfolio, pointing to the recent launch of the Learjet 75 Liberty, a lower-price, six-passenger version of the superlight jet.

Bombardier announced that its Global 7500 aircraft is the largest, most spacious, purpose-built business jet to operate out of Gstaad’s Saanen airport in Switzerland – one of the most notable airfields located in the heart of the Swiss Alps, requiring short-field performance – showcasing its true four-zone cabin during an event earlier this month before continuing its journey to the Middle-East and reaching Dubai directly from Gstaad Saanen airport.

“This demonstration strengthens the Global 7500 jet as a jet that simply has no peer in terms of combining size and real-world capabilities,” said Peter Likoray, Senior Vice President, Worldwide Sales and Marketing, Bombardier Business Aircraft. “Not only can it access demanding airfields in hot and/or high locations, it also delivers uncompromising value to customers under any conditions, at any time, without the need for tailwinds and a signature smooth ride through exceptional wing flexibility.”

The Global 7500 aircraft’s advanced wing technology generates unprecedented amounts of extra lift on takeoff and approach due to its sophisticated slats and flap system. It also maximizes aerodynamic efficiency and increases performance all the while improving safety and offering a smoother ride. The Global 7500 jet’s no compromise design makes it the largest business jet with the short-field performance and steep approach capabilities allowing it to operate out of demanding airfields such as Gstaad’s Saanen airport or London City Airport, connecting passengers to key regions in Europe and the Middle East non-stop*.

Beyond being recently recognized as Business Jet of the Year in Robb Report’s Best of the Best 2019 and Grand Laureate winner of the 62nd Annual Laureate Awards in the Business Aviation category, the Global 7500 jet offers Bombardier’s signature smooth ride and a spaciousness that is unique among business jets. The aircraft offers the most innovative features such as the recently unveiled Soleil lighting system, the industry’s most advanced cabin lighting technology. Designed and developed exclusively for the Global 7500 aircraft, the innovative Soleil lighting system is aviation’s first circadian rhythm-based cabin lighting technology, and it introduces the revolutionary Dynamic Daylight Simulation feature, which can help combat jet lag. The Global 7500 business jet also offers the patented Nuage seat, meticulously designed for maximum comfort, which introduces an all-new, ergonomically-perfected deep recline position – unavailable on any other business aircraft.

Also showcased in Gstaad, was the best-selling super-midsize market leader, Challenger 350 aircraft jet, which offers customers unrivaled cabin comfort along with Bombardier’s signature smooth ride. Continuously improving the segment-defining aircraft, Bombardier recently announced a series of enhancements to the Challenger 350 aircraft, further underscoring its leadership position in the super mid-size segment. These new enhancements include available compact Head-up Display (HUD) and Enhanced Vision System (EVS), class-leading cabin-sound-proofing technology, and improved cockpit aesthetics. A performance improvement package also allows the aircraft to fly up to 1,500 NM farther out of short runways, complementing its steep approach certifications awarded by international regulatory bodies including EASA, FAA and TC. To further demonstrate its performance capabilities, the Challenger 350 set a world speed record in its class, flying from Gstaad’s Saanen airport to Malaga in Spain in 2 hours 4 minutes at an average cruise speed of Mach 0.82. This achievement is another example of the impressive speed, climb and field performance capabilities of the super midsize Challenger 350 aircraft, recognized as the world’s most delivered business jet of the last decade.

Bombardier today announced that its Global 7500 aircraft, the world’s largest and longest range business jet, has demonstrated its unmatched performance capabilities with the first ever flight from London City Airport to Los Angeles, CA.

The aircraft flew non-stop from London City Airport (LCY), one of the most notable airports requiring steep approach capabilities, to Van Nuys, CA, one of the most popular business aviation airports serving the Los Angeles area. The flight was carried out by a flight test vehicle (FTV5) called “The Masterpiece,” in London City to complete the Global 7500 aircraft’s steep approach certification flight test campaign for Transport Canada.

The Masterpiece was configured with the equivalent weight of a fully fitted interior, including a stateroom and shower, and 2,400 lbs of additional payload, representing about 11 passengers and their baggage.

As part of its steep approach certification flight test campaign, the aircraft also performed several takeoffs and landings at London City Airport to demonstrate this operational capability. With its tremendous performance and flexibility, the Global 7500 aircraft gives passengers direct access to any location in the U.S. from the airfield deep in the heart of one of the world’s greatest financial centres.

The Global 7500 aircraft is the largest business jet with short-field performance and steep approach capabilities able to operate out of London City Airport and to connect any city in the continental U.S., Africa or the Middle East*. Its long-range performance can go even further traveling eastward, reaching most major cities in Asia.

This latest mission comes only weeks after the aircraft set back-to-back city-pair speed records for the fastest ever business jet flights between New York and London, and between Los Angeles and New York. Prior to that, the Global 7500 aircraft also completed an unprecedented long-range mission from Singapore to Tucson, Arizona, departing as planned during its busy world-tour schedule—without the need to linger at the airfield for days on end, waiting for exponentially stronger tailwinds, as some smaller aircraft do.
