Bombardier Global 7500 gains FAA Certification
Bombardier’s Global 7500 received certification from the Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) earlier today.
This follows certification from Transport Canada and the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) earlier this year.
“This milestone is the latest accomplishment for our award-winning Global 7500 business jet, which has been exceeding expectations on every level,” said Michel Ouellette, Senior Vice President, Global 7500 and Global 8000 Program, Bombardier Business Aircraft. “The Global 7500 business jet has proven itself as the highest-performing aircraft in the industry and promises to revolutionize the market and significantly change the business aviation landscape.”
The Global 7500 can fly 7,700 nautical miles – 300 nautical miles further than when the programme was launched. This means that it can fly from New York to Hong Kong or Singapore to San Francisco without needing to stop.
“Obtaining the Global 7500 aircraft Type Certification from the FAA marks one of the final chapters in our very successful development program,” said Stephen McCullough, Bombardier’s Vice President of Integrated Product Development for the Global 7500 and Global 8000 Program. “Achieving this latest milestone is a direct result of the commitment to excellence of the highly-skilled employees who worked on the program and our solid collaboration with our suppliers.”
