Bombardier’s Global 7500 gains EASA certification

Posted 8 February 2019 · Add Comment

Bombardier's Global 7500 business jet has received European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) certification, validating the requirement for the aircraft’s operation in Europe.



“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.”

The Global 7500 business jet earned its type certification from Transport Canada in September 2018, followed by the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in November 2018, both within only 24 months after the first flight of FTV1. The aircraft entered service in December 2018.

The Global 7500 aircraft has demonstrated its ability to fly further than any other business jet by expanding its advertised range to 7,700 nautical miles, a full 300 nautical miles further than initial commitments. It can do so from the most difficult locations around the world, having exceeded takeoff and landing performance commitments, providing strong capability from Europe’s most challenging destinations such as Sion and St. Moritz, Switzerland.

The Global 7500 aircraft is the only business jet that connects New York to Hong Kong and Singapore to San Francisco nonstop, flying eight passengers with standard NBAA IFR fuel reserves. The Global 7500 aircraft also debuts Bombardier’s patented Nuage seat, which has been designed exclusively for the new Global family of aircraft.
