Bombardier's Global 7500 business jet makes record-setting run
MONTRÉAL, Quebec - Bombardier announced that its 7500 business jet successfully completed an 8,152-nautical-mile flight non-stop which they note is the longest mission ever flown by a purpose-built business jet. The flight took place from Singapore to Tucson, Ariz.
Bombardier also informed that the jet landed with fuel reserves above NBAA requirements and could have flown for an additional hour-and-a-half.
The business jet departed from Singapore Changi Airport at 7:12 a.m. local time and arrived at Tucson International Airport at 8:19 a.m. local time, completing the long-range speed record flight for the city-pair.
“The Global 7500 aircraft was built to break all the records,” said David Coleal, President, Bombardier Business Aircraft. “It achieved the industry’s longest mission ever in business aviation after only two months in service.”
Boasting a top speed of Mach 0.925, the aircraft has shown its ability to fly even further than its advertised range of 7,700 nautical miles.
