General Aviation Bombardier Global 7500 receives EASA approval
Aircraft manufacturer Bombardier has published, that its Global 6500 Business Jet has gained approval by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA).
After its introduction into service last year, the largest and longest-range business jet has now gained approval by the EASA. This allows Global 7500 operators from a European Union country to register the aircraft.
The EASA certification represents and validates the aircraft´s characteristics for smooth and secure operations in Europe. Initially, Bombardier´s most significant business jet received its Transport Canada certificate in September 2018, followed by the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) approval in November 2018. The first Global 7500 entered into service in December 2018.
“We’ve transformed business aviation with the Global 7500 jet,” said Michel Ouellette, Senior Vice President, Program Management and Engineering, Bombardier Business Aircraft. “With the longest range in the industry, the aircraft can connect more international cities nonstop, opening many destinations to our customers.”
Bombardier´s Global 7500 has a range of up to 7,700 nautical miles and was built to operate perfectly at difficult locations like Sion or St. Moritz as well. The Global 7500 is popular with customers that need to fly long-haul missions. For example, the 7500 is capable of operating between New York and Hong Kong nonstop.
Eight passengers can be accommodated with standard NBAA IFR fuel reserves. The cabin features four living spaces and a full-size kitchen. Moreover, Bombardier debuts its Nuage seats in the Global 7500, which were designed for maximum passenger comfort.
This newly issued certificate represents a significant milestone for the Global 7500 programme. Now, the manufacturer can deliver more aircraft to more customers in the EU. Bombardier plans on ramping up deliveries for the Global 7500 over the coming years.
Just recently, the Canadian manufacturer announced that it would bring a new commercial aircraft to the market, the CRJ550. According to the media reports, the plane was specially designed for United Airlines. The major U.S.- American carrier will take delivery of 50 state-of-the-art CRJ550s.
