Unicorp National Developments has taken delivery of the first Bombardier Global 5500 aircraft to be based in the United States. The business jet, which will be available for charter, is to be operated by Elite Air. “Our team is beyond excited to benefit from the first Global 5500 aircraft in the US,” says Chuck Whittall, president, Unicorp National Developments. “This aircraft will allow us to travel with less fuss and more peace of mind.”

The Global 5500 business jet entered service last month, joining Bombardier's new large cabin family alongside the Global 6500 aircraft and the OEM's flagship Global 7500. The Global 5500's range can take passengers non-stop from Florida to Sao Paulo, Paris, London or Moscow. Passengers will enjoy three spacious living areas featuring Bombardier's patented Nuage seating collection. High speed, worldwide Ka-band connectivity is also available onboard.

“We are thrilled that Unicorp will be using this high performing, high value Global business jet to facilitate travel needs,” says Peter Likoray, senior VP of worldwide sales and marketing at Bombardier. “With its intercontinental range and best-in-class cabin experience, the Global 5500 aircraft is a valuable asset for companies looking for safe and efficient transport.”

The Global 5500 business jet is equipped with Bombardier Pũr Air, an air purification system available exclusively on Global aircraft. The system's advanced HEPA filter captures up to 99.99 per cent of allergens, bacteria and viruses.

Unicorp's Global 5500 will be available for charter out of Orlando International airport via Elite Air, under a Part 135 charter certificate. The delivery took place at Bombardier's site in Wichita, Kansas, where Global 5500 aircraft are completed. This site has a history of collaboration with Unicorp: 16 years ago, the company took delivery of the first-ever Learjet 60 aircraft to be completed in Wichita.
