Description: Bombardier Global is a family of twin-engine, high-speed, intercontinental, widebody business jet intended for long- and ultra long-range routes while offering the highest level of comfort. Bombardier Global belongs to the super-large business jet category and features the widest and most spacious cabin. Bombardier Global includes Global 5000 and Global Express business jets. In addition to VIP transport, the Global is available for military applications such as the United Kingdom ASTOR/Sentinel ground surveillance aircraft which is based on the Global Express.
The Bombardier Global 6000, until 2011/2012 known as the Global Express XRS, is based on the Global Express jet and was designed to provide the most luxurious cabin in a business jet. It includes an improved cabin pressurization system to reduce crew/passenger in-flight fatigue. The Global Express XRS offers higher cabin comfort, enhanced performance and further advanced technology for increased productivity. Moreover, it can fly faster and farther than any of its predecessors. The Global Express can fly 5,450 nautical miles (10,000+ km) nonstop at Mach 0.87 or 6,150 nautical miles (11,370 km) at Mach 0.85 carrying eight passenger and four crew.
Both ultra long range Global Express and Global Express XRS business jets are powered by two Rolls Royce BR710A2-20 turbofan engines rated at 14,750-lb each. The Enhanced Vision System (EVS), which comes as standard equipment, helps pilots navigate unfamiliar airports with confidence. Global Express/XRS require runways of approximately 1,800 meters long. Originally Bombardier Global Express XRS was set to enter service in January 2006. Finally, the aircraft type entered into service on December 10, 2005 ahead of scheduled date.
