  1. Global 5500; 6500 By Bombardier Timetabled For 2019
    Bombardier has given a concrete timeline to the entry-into-service (EIS) for the new generation of Globals, the Global 5500 and 6500. Speaking at the 2018 NBAA-BACE the Canadian airframer says that flight testing for the updated models of the Global 5000 (now Global 5500) and Global 6000 (now Global 6500) is approximately 70 percent completed and therefore should easily allow them to be certificated and enter service towards the back-end of 2019.
  2. "The flight test team feels privileged to execute another program for such superior aircraft," said Tom Bisges, Vice President, Bombardier Flight Test Centre and Flight Operations. "The Global 5500 and 6500 aircraft flight test program is proceeding smoothly, and we find that our extensive experience testing the Global 7500 aircraft, as well as the quality of these newest aircraft, allow us to continue to execute on schedule." The new planes will have a number of upgrades including Bombardier’s advanced Vision flight deck which is according to Bombardier, the first true combined vision system (CVS) in business aviation – the only system to seamlessly merge enhanced and synthetic images in a single view. The Global 5500 and Global 6500 aircraft have class-leading ranges of 5,700 and 6,600 nautical miles, respectively. These are a few of the updates made to the new Global aircraft.
