Headquartered in Montreal, Canada, and with operations in Mexico, Morocco, United Kingdom, United States and Canada, Bombardier boasts a strong heritage and visionary innovation dating back to the start of civil aviation -- spanning some 110 years -- and is recognized globally as a leader in the design, manufacturing and support of both business jets and commercial airliners. The acquisition of Canadair in 1986 was the first of several strategic moves that would see Bombardier consolidate leading aircraft design and manufacturing experience from around the world. In the following six years, Bombardier grew in strength and stature by acquiring in 1989 the world’s first aircraft production company -- Northern Ireland-based Short Brothers -- followed by Learjet of Wichita, USA, in 1990, and de Havilland Canada in 1992.
Bombardier Business Aircraft currently offers the broadest portfolio of business jets with its popular Learjet*, Challenger* and Global* aircraft families. In their respective segments, the Learjet 70* and Learjet 75* aircraft feature superior cruise speeds, high climb rates and operating ceilings, and competitive operating costs. In the medium category, the class-defining Challenger 350* and the Challenger 650* offer industry-leading cabin design and amenities as well as performance and reliability attributes synonymous with the Challenger family.
The Global* long-range aircraft family -- featuring Bombardier’s unmatched smooth ride technology – is recognized globally for its range, speed and cabin comfort. On May 27, 2018, Bombardier unveiled
its new Global 5500 and Global 6500 aircraft, with class-leading ranges of 5,700 and 6,600
nautical miles, respectively, and top speeds of Mach 0.90. Then, on Dec 20, 2018 -- following type certification by Transport Canada and the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration, Bombardier celebrated the entry-into-service of its pioneering Global 7500. The only purpose-built, four-compartment cabin specifically designed to deliver uncompromising levels of range, speed and cabin comfort, the Global 7500 establishes a new standard in business aviation.
Bombardier supports customers globally through a network of field service personnel and a combination of wholly owned and authorized MRO facilities. On Oct 3, 2018, Bombardier announced another wave of MRO growth with a new 300,000-sq-ft service center at Miami-Opa Locka Executive Airport to be operational in 2020, following on newly operational Bombardier service centers in Biggin Hill, U.K., and in Tianjin, China. This global network also includes 24/7 customer response centers, mobile parts delivery services and spare parts depots.
