Two new additions to's Global family were unveiled on the eve of EBACE: the Global 5500 and the 6500. The Aircraft Pilot Surprises Here With a New Motor Family of The Pearl, secretly protected and certified in February
The Global 5500 and 6500 take the current Global 5000 and 6000 respectively, and increase their speed and performance with new engines and a wing with a newly profiled trailing edge. The range of eight passengers on a standard drive of Mach 0.85 is extended by 500 nm, but up to 1
The aircraft is manufactured on the same line as the Global 5000 and 6000, which will continue to be available. The four models offer mission, performance and price points to meet different customer needs. First deliveries are scheduled for the end of next year.
The Global 5500/6500cockpit is the first to merge infrared and synthetic images seamlessly into a single view, Bombardier says. Advanced weather radar detection, real-time air traffic information and improved airfield maps are included in the latest evolution of the Bombardier Vision Flight Deck.
Many new features have been integrated into the new aircraft, including the Cabin Ka-band, fiber-optic based cabin management systems and Nuage seats, which Bombardier has developed specifically for the Global family. However, they are not offered for the Global 5000 and 6000.
Other new features include a kitchen ("placed in the front of the plane where it belongs," says Bombardier). End exposed equipment including a steam oven. New cabinets and new countertops with the latest styling provide more gourmet options. Next to the kitchen there is a crew-resting area.
David Colleal, President of Bombardier Business Aviation, said on Sunday evening on the TAG Aviation FBO that the new aircraft contains many innovations, especially in the main cabin (19659003) "The passenger seats are something very special," said Coleal. "Nuage is French for" Cloud ", and this seat … is the first new seating architecture in business aviation in more than 30 years, when engineers designed this revolutionary seat and designers of Bombardier set the rules aside, it's the most comfortable seat in the skies and the perfect place to spend a long flight.
"It has a deep recliner so you can rest comfortably, and a patented tilting system. Recline link system that automatically dips the base of the seat. The tilting headrest provides optimal neck support in any position. If you want to move or network for a different view, these movements are intuitive and effortless thanks to the first fully floating base with no visible rails.
The Big Conference Suite Contains Another Innovation: The Nuage Carts Based on the observation that many people are sitting on the credenza, Bombardier decided to make it more useful.
"As a flat surface, it is ideal for business meetings. It gives you the opportunity to have two or three people side by side, facing the conference table, like a large dining room. It then transforms into a modular seat where you can sit back, sit back and enjoy your flight like never before. It turns the room into a quiet lounge. Nobody can bring home comfort and luxury to heaven. We pride ourselves on being innovative and leading the way in passenger comfort. "
Coleal said ShowNews that the Global 5500 and 6500 models will appeal to customers who consider the move to Global 7500 to be too big a step, but they want the latest features.
" You get an amazing value proposition with the 5500 and 6500. They are class killing planes because no one can match them in every way. "
