Formula 1 world champion and Bombardier business aircraft brand ambassador Niki Lauda has purchased a Global 7000, the latest in a series of Globals to be owned and operated by the Austrian.
"The Global 7000 aircraft is an incredible business jet in so many ways," says Lauda. "The cabin is large and spacious and the four separate zones provide greater comfort, especially for longer trips. With its impressive range and speed, I can easily fly from Vienna to Sao Paolo, and almost all other stops along the Formula 1 circuit, quickly and efficiently."
Until recently, Lauda owned and operated a Global 5000 aircraft and a Challenger 300 jet as his private aircraft, which he frequently used to travel to Formula 1 races around the world from his home base in Austria. He currently owns a Global 6000, which recently won the 2015 International Yacht & Aviation Awards prize for best interior in the private jet design category and was delivered in February 2015.
The Global 7000 features a four zone cabin, Bombardier Vision flight deck, and has the capability to fly at Mach 0.90 with a range of 7,300nm, connecting London and Singapore.
