The Bombardier Global 7500 aircraft breaks key speed record

Montreal, March 27, 2019 – Bombardier has announced that the jet once again proved its unparalleled performance by breaking a significant speed record between Los Angeles and New York, a key city pair.

The award-winning, clean-sheet-design Global 7500 business jet left Van Nuys Airport at 7:01 AM local time on March 24, 2019, and arrived at Teterboro Airport at 1:55 PM local time, completing the coast-to-coast mission in 3 hours and 54 minutes, beating the previously held record established by a competing aircraft manufacturer and making it the fastest business jet ever to complete this route. During the flight, the aircraft reached a top speed of M 0.925 and sustained that speed for more than two hours, demonstrating exceptional speed capabilities, all while providing the smoothest ride.

“The Global 7500 aircraft is simply the best business jet on the market today,” said David Coleal, President, Bombardier Business Aircraft. “The latest speed record demonstrates once again that the Global 7500 jet is the undisputed leader in business aviation.”

Since its entry-into-service, the Global 7500 business jet has proven itself to be the highest-performing aircraft in the industry. With unmatched speed and range capabilities as well as a record-setting 8,152-nautical-mile flight under its belt, the longest flight in business aviation, the Global 7500 aircraft continues to set the bar for excellence and performance in the world of business aviation.

The Global 7500 aircraft offers the ultimate in-flight experience with an exceptional cabin interior, the aircraft offers the most innovative features: Bombardier’s patented Nuage seat and the revolutionary nice Touch cabin management system (CMS), a new way to connect with the Global 7500 aircraft cabin through the Bombardier Touch dial, featuring business aviation’s first application of an OLED display.
