The Global 7000 is the latest in the line in the Global family that started with the Global Express. It is the largest of the Global Family with a range of 7,300 nautical miles. It was introduced at the 2010 NBAA convention.
The Global 7000 is powered by GE Passport thrust engines, which provide 16,500 pounds of thrust at takeoff. It offers reduced NOx emissions and requires about 8 percent less fuel burn than the previous Global aircraft.
The cabin was also redesigned and the interior of the Global 7000 features four “true” cabin zones, excluding the lavatories, galley and storage sections. It includes several firsts for a Bombardier aircraft, such as a double bed, a 20 percent larger galley and 80 percent larger windows compared to the Global 5000 and 6000 jets. Lighting is another special feature of the Global 7000/8000 and 14 windows on either side of the fuselage provide more natural light than on any other business jet.
The aircraft is fitted with a Global Vision flight deck and a Rockwell Collins avionics system. The cockpit features four large LCD screens, a head-up display system (HUD), enhanced vision system (EVS) and synthetic vision system (SVS).
The aircraft features onboard maintenance system (OMS), datalink, high-speed SATCOM, next-generation cabin management system (CMS) and controller pilot data link communication (CPDLC).
It also features graphical flight planning and weather radar with enhanced functionality, such as windshear detection. It is equipped with the latest performance based navigation features, including wide area augmentation system (WAAS), Localizer Performance with Vertical guidance (LPV) Approach and area navigation (RNAV).
The Global 7000 entered service in 2016.
