This jet is for the elites, way above you and me…The 1% of the 1%.
Bombardier is best known for their very uncomfortable CRJ series and the new more palatable C-series regional airliners. While most of us will never set foot in a private jet, their line of aircraft are impressive.
On November 4th of this year, the highly anticipated Bombardier Global 7000 business jet completed its first flight. With the ability to hold a total of 17 passengers and crew, travel at Mach .925, and travel a distance of 7,400 nautical miles, it is sure to take the business jet world by storm. With its luxurious setup it is certainly a home in the sky with room for business and entertaining, as well as wonderfully designed dedicated crew space.
At 111 feet long, and with a wingspan of 104 feet, Bombardier was sure to pack as much luxury and power as possible into this aircraft. Right down to the turbofan General Electric Passport engines, aerodynamic wing design, amazing fuel efficiency and perfect use of every inch of the aircraft, Bombardier has created not only the perfect jet for passengers, but for the pilots keeping it flying as well.
This video shows the success of the first flight of the aircraft that has been in the works for several years. As soon as the Bombardier Global 7000 is readily and widely available, it is sure to be a hit for those traveling in it and for those in charge of flying it! We certainly look forward to seeing just how great this aircraft will truly be as we start seeing them in the sky in the near future!
