Bombardier introduces business jet with the longest flight range

The flight range of the Global 8000 is – as the type name reveals – 8000 nautical miles, or 14,816 kilometers. The top speed of the twin-engine business jet will be Mach 0.94, which corresponds to 1152 kilometers per hour. The Entry-into-Service (EIS) is planned for 2025.

The aircraft is based on the existing Global 7500, but can fly faster and further due to technical adjustments. Owners of that type have the option to ‘retrofit’ their device to achieve the same performance of the Global 8000.

Until a few years ago, Bombardier was a conglomerate that also built regional passenger planes and trains. Today, the Canadian company is only engaged in the construction of business jets.
