Bombardier extends high speed Global 5000 jet range to 5,200 NM

Bombardier Aerospace today announced a 400 nautical mile (NM) (741 km) increase to the non-stop intercontinental range of its high speed Global 5000 business jet. The range increase is standard for all Global 5000 aircraft ordered as of February 1 st, 2008 and will be available as an option for aircraft previously ordered, but yet to be delivered, in the second quarter of fiscal year 2009.

The significant range extension will be obtained by increasing the Maximum Takeoff Weight (MTOW) to 92,500 lbs, allowing for a fuel tank capacity increase. "This is fantastic news for our Global 5000 jet customers," stated Éric Martel, vice-president and general manager, Global and Challenger, Bombardier Business Aircraft. "Already offering exceptional speed and performance, the Global 5000 jet now flies you further."

Flying at its typical cruise speed of Mach 0.85 (907 km/h), the Global 5000 jet now offers a nonstop range of 5,200 NM (9,630 km)* – eight percent more. The extended range increases travel flexibility to include key city pairs such as London-Los Angeles, 4,742 NM (8,782 km), Sao Paulo-Paris, 5,065 NM (9,380 km), Hong Kong-Wellington, 5,097 NM (9,440 km), New York-Honolulu, 4,331 NM (8,021 km), and Dubai-Perth, 4,873 NM (9,025 km)*.

The Global 5000 business jet's category-leading high cruise speed of Mach 0.89 (950 km/hr)* and superior short field performance trims up to a full hour from long distance routes such as Moscow-New York (nine hours, 29 minutes) Johannesburg-Geneva (10 hours), Jeddah-Jakarta (nine hours, 53 minutes) and Sao Paulo-Madrid (nine hours, 20 minutes)*. The Global 5000 jet also features the widest and most spacious super-large jet cabin, paired with one of the most technologically advanced cabin electronic systems available today.

The aircraft is now available with the Global Vision flight deck. The new Pro Line Fusion avionics suite is paired with superior design aesthetics from world-renowned design consultancy firm Design Q, to create the ultimate flight control environment, providing Global aircraft pilots with an unprecedented level of situational awareness and comfort.
