Six features of Bombardier’s Global 7500 aircraft
Bombardier is planning a launch event in Montreal next week on 20. December. Totalling at US$73mn, they are hoping for the model to generate US$2.5bn annual revenue, continuing to enforce its position as Canada’s leading aerospace company. We share six features of the new model:
- Adapted for smooth flying
In their latest press release, Bombardier shares that they have adapted the wings of The Global 7500 for maximum flexibility, making for ‘an exceptionally smooth ride.’
- Optimised flight capabilities
7,700 nautical mile range, and a top speed of Mach 0.925, and steep approach capability.
- In-flight comfort
The Global 7500 will feature the Nuage seat, a new patented design for the first time in thirty years. The seat will notably feature a lower recline, with inbuilt neck support for any position. The Nuage has a floating base, with a centred swivel axis that will balance the seat.
