  • The Global 7500 full-scale mock-up continues its worldwide tour in Europe after successful stops in Dubai, Singapore and Shanghai
  • Mock-up offers guests a rare opportunity to experience the unparalleled comfort and spaciousness of this unique business jet
  • Recently renamed after exceeding performance expectations, the Global 7500 aircraft is the largest and longest range business jet, with four distinct living spaces, a fully-equipped kitchen and an exceptionally smooth ride
  • The Global 7500 flight test program has surpassed 2,300 flight hours and the aircraft is on track for entry-into-service in the second half of 2018

Bombardier is thrilled to announce that the full-scale mock-up of its eagerly anticipated Global 7500 aircraft will be on display in Olbia, Italy, as of mid-July and throughout the summer, offering guests an exclusive opportunity to experience the aircraft’s unmatched spaciousness first hand. The mock-up continues its successful worldwide tour, following stops in Dubai, Singapore and Shanghai.

“This is a significant year for the Global 7500 aircraft, with its planned certification and entry into service,” said Peter Likoray, Senior Vice President, Worldwide Sales and Marketing, Bombardier Business Aircraft. “It’s an ideal time for customers to explore the potential of a true four zone cabin and discover what makes the Global 7500 jet a class-defining aircraft in the industry. It also gives us an opportunity to showcase its unique features as we prepare for the entry into service of the 
Global 7500 aircraft.”

The mock-up features a dining area, entertainment lounge, a master suite and an en suite. The fully equipped kitchen includes high-end appliances, with ample room for dinnerware and glassware. The interior of the aircraft is highly customizable, and owners seeking to create the ultimate in-flight experience will be able to configure the interior to reflect their personal tastes. Guests who arrange a special private viewing of the mock-up will be able to explore the full length of the cabin, from the cutting-edge cockpit to the expansive luggage bay at the rear, which was designed to be fully accessible during flight.

The full-size mock-up will be on display at the airport in Olbia throughout the summer. This is the mock-up’s second visit to Italy following a successful showing in Olbia in 2017. The mock-up’s arrival comes on the heels of Bombardier’s triumphant presence at the European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (EBACE) in Geneva, one of the most important aerospace exhibitions in the world. During the show, Bombardier announced that its eagerly awaited marquis business jet will enter service as the Global 7500, to celebrate its outstanding performance and its position as the flagship of the new Globalaircraft family. Bombardier also debuted its patented Nuage seat, which was meticulously designed for maximum comfort and the revolutionary nice Touch cabin management system, a Bombardier-designed platform developed in collaboration with Lufthansa Technik and found exclusively on the Global 7500 aircraft.

Furthermore, Bombardier’s Global 7500 aircraft is the recipient of a 2018 Red Dot Award for Product Design. Selected by the 39-person jury from among a crowded field, with more than 6,300 submissions from close to 60 countries competing in several categories, the state-of-the art aircraft received the Red Dot in the 2018 Red Dot Award: Product Design in the ships, trains and planes category. The 
Global 7500 aircraft’s sophisticated styling sets the benchmark for the most exceptional business jet experience. Every detail of the cabin interior has been crafted to create a rich and satisfying experience, from its class-leading and largest kitchen in the industry and forward-thinking lighting to the first-ever dedicated stateroom with a fixed bed.

The Global 7500 aircraft is on track to enter service during the second half of 2018. All five of its test vehicles are in the flight test program, with more than 2,300 hours of flight testing accomplished, demonstrating significant maturity, reliability and a smooth ride.
