  1. Bombardier Unveils Global 8000 At EBACE 2022
    The eternal competition between the top-tier airframers in the ultra-long range and large cabin executive jet industry continues. For a long time Gulfstream has been the king of the hill with their large cabin offerings but in recent years Bombardier has been challenging them and dethroning them in the process more so with the Global 7000 (now known as the Global 7500). Gulfstream naturally did not let this become the reality for very long and subsequently announced not one but two industry leading aircraft - the G700 and G800- specifically targeting Bombardier's advances. Today, the Canadian executive jet airframer announced their new flagship, the Global 8000.
  2. With an industry-leading range of 8,000 nautical miles and an unbeatable top speed of Mach 0.94, the Global 8000 aircraft is the ultimate all-in-one business aircraft, offering customers a unique blend of outstanding performance married with the smoothest ride and an uncompromising passenger experience – the absolute leader in the long-range class. "Today, Bombardier solidifies once more its position as the leader in business aviation with the newest member of the industry-leading Global family," said Éric Martel, Bombardier’s President and Chief Executive Officer. "The Global 8000 aircraft leverages the outstanding attributes of the Global 7500 aircraft, providing our customers with a flagship aircraft of a new era. We remain unmatched, which for an innovation-focused team like us, is great." Bombardier has be actively working on making the Global 7500 better with one of the Flight Test Vehicles. The aircraft, accompanied by a NASA F/A-18 chase plane, repeatably achieved speeds in excess of Mach 1.015, a key step in enabling a maximum Mach operating speed (MMO) of M0.94 and becoming the fastest business jet in the world and the fastest in civil aviation since the Concorde.
  3. The Global 8000 with its increased range is expected to connect city-pairs like Dubai-Houston, Singapore-Los Angeles, London-Perth and many others. Bombardier notes that customers of the Global 7500 will be able to have some of the features the future Global 8000 will have via retrofits. The Global 8000 aircraft is the only true four-zone cabin business jet to have a range of 8,000 nautical miles. The new Global 8000 is targeted for entry into service in 2025.
