Bombardier unveils Soleil on Global 7500

Posted 30 April 2019 · Add Comment

Bombardier Business Aircraft has unveiled the Soleil lighting system, the industry’s most advanced cabin lighting technology, on the award-winning Global 7500 business jet.



Designed and developed exclusively for the Global 7500 aircraft, the innovative Soleil lighting system is aviation’s first circadian rhythm-based cabin lighting technology fully integrated with the Flight Management System, and it introduces the revolutionary Dynamic Daylight Simulation feature, which can help combat jet lag.

“We’re pleased to showcase the innovative Soleil lighting system on the Global 7500 aircraft,” said Peter Likoray, Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Bombardier Business Aircraft. “The Global 7500 jet is the world’s longest range purpose-built business aircraft with an unrivalled cabin experience. Along with the aircraft’s master suite with a full bed, stand-up shower and exceptionally smooth ride, the Soleil lighting system helps passengers arrive at their destination feeling more rested and refreshed.”

The Soleil lighting system’s Dynamic Daylight Simulation uses specific combinations of red and blue light wavelengths that studies have shown to help stimulate or suppress the production of melatonin – which assists in regulating the sleep-wake cycle and can help contribute to synchronizing passengers’ circadian rhythms to the time at their destination.

The Soleil lighting system is fully integrated into the Global 7500 aircraft’s nice Touch cabin management system and can also be customised to a passenger’s preference for either extended sleep or productivity via the system’s unique circadian adjustment setting. The Soleil lighting system can also conveniently be programmed to schedule the optimal times for meal services, allowing the cabin crew to better prepare and plan more efficiently.

Incorporating twice the number of individual LEDs than other cabin lighting methods, the Soleil lighting system delivers the most vivid and high-definition colour rendering index (CRI) of any lighting system available today.

The Soleil lighting system is a standard feature on the Global 7500 aircraft, which entered into service in December 2018.

Winner of the 2019 Aviation Week Grand Laureate Award and a Red Dot award for design, the Global 7500 features a full-size kitchen and four living spaces.
