Program Profile: Bombardier Global 7500
The Global 7500 is a twin-engine business jet produced by Canadian manufacturer Bombardier. Part of the company’s Global line of business jets, the Global 7500—then being marketed under the Global 7000 commercial designation— was announced by the company on Oct. 16, 2010, alongside the Global 8000. Subsequently, the then-Global 7000 made its first flight on Nov. 4, 2016, and was certified by Transport Canada on Sept. 27, 2018. Prior to certification, the change in commercial designation from Global 7000 to Global 7500 was announced on May 28, 2018.
As is the case with all Global Express and Global airframes based on the BD-700-1A10 and -1A11 types, the Global 7500—which is currently the only commercial designation for Bombardier’s BD-700-1A12 type—can accommodate a maximum of 19 passengers in addition to the two required crew. Those passengers are accommodated in a cabin that has a length of 54 ft. 5 in.—measured from the cockpit divider to the rear portion of the cabin, excluding the airframe’s baggage compartment—width of 8 ft. and height of 6 ft. 2 in.
Flight crews operate the Global 7500 using Bombardier’s Vision flight deck, which features four displays and side-stick controllers. Additional avionics technologies include enhanced and synthetic vision systems, a head-up display (HUD), graphical flight planning, MultiScan weather radar, performance-based navigation and controller-pilot data-link communication.
