Bombardier's flagship Global 7500 has been awarded Transport Canada type certification, paving the way for entry into service this year. Certification by EASA and the FAA is expected to follow shortly.
“The certification of our clean-sheet Global 7500 business jet is a defining moment for us and for the industry,” says president David Coleal. “Thanks to the rigour and innovation of our design and test programme, the aircraft has succeeded in elevating every standard by which a business jet is measured: comfort, luxury, performance and a smooth ride. The type is set to redefine international business jet travel and we couldn't be more proud.”
The aircraft has accumulated more than 2,700 flight hours since flight testing began in November 2016.
