Bombardier has completed the 100th wing for its Global 7500 business jet, a significant milestone for the industry-leading aircraft and for the company's facility in Red Oak, Texas, where the advanced wing is manufactured.
The Global 7500 program recently marked its 50th aircraft delivery and continues to garner significant interest from customers worldwide for its innovative technology, unique cabin design and performance.
"This is an important milestone for our Global 7500 program, and we are proud of our skilled team in Red Oak, Texas," says Paul Sislian, Executive Vice President, Operations and Operational Excellence, Bombardier. "Their dedication and expertise in manufacturing this truly unique wing, built exclusively for the Global 7500 business jet, is what helps make it the industry flagship."
Bombardier's 600-plus employees in Red Oak play a critical role in ensuring the success of the technologically advanced wing program. In 2019, Bombardier established the Bombardier Aviation Apprenticeship Program (BAAP) in association with Texas State Technical College (TSTC). The initiative is designed to develop local talent, drive regional aerospace growth, and support the manufacture of the Global 7500 aircraft wing. The BAAP program is critical in keeping up with increased customer demand for the industry-defining aircraft.
Earlier this year, Bombardier was awarded the Large Employer of the Year award from Texas Workforce Solutions for its work with TSTC in the development of the BAAP initiative. The Large Employer of the Year award honours one private-sector employer with 500 employees or more whose efforts and initiatives resulted in an extraordinary impact on the state of Texas, as well as the employers, workers and community in which the employer operates.
