bombardier global series jets

Bombardier, a Canadian aircraft manufacturer, is famed for their Bombardier Global series jets despite having produced a variety of aircraft over the years, including the narrow-body C-Series, which later evolved into the Airbus A220. What are the differences between the members of this family of private jets? Let’s find out! 

Bombardier offers a total of six Global-series branded aircraft variants, which are divided into three sets of two according to their size. The first two models in the larger Global Express family are the 29.5-meter-long Global 5000 and 5500 variants, which make up the smallest pair. Both require a crew of three. 

Largest of the Bombardier Global Series Jets: Bombardier Global 7500 and Bombardier Global 8000

Recent program developments have seen Bombardier introduce two stretched-fuselage Global variants, the 7500 and 8000. These measure 33.9 meters in length, 8.2 meters in height, and 31.7 meters in wing span. With a maximum passenger capacity of 19, these aircraft outperform their smaller competitors. 

The 7500 and 8000, which accommodate up to four-person crews and are powered by General Electric Passport turbofans, have impressive long-range and high-speed capabilities. The former, which made its maiden flight in 2016 and entered service two years later, and has a maximum range of 7,700 NM (14,260 km) and a maximum speed of Mach 0.925. (709.7 mph). 

The Global 8000, which is expected to have a range of 8,000 NM (14,800 km), has yet to enter service. Indeed, the current estimation for its introduction is 2025. However, the aircraft has been conducting test flights, with one of these SAF-powered excursions resulting in a supersonic flight. The maximum speed listed for this variant of Bombardier’s popular Global series is Mach 0.94. (721.2 mph). 

Bombardier Global 7500 price is approximately $75 million

Bombardier Global 8000 price is expected to be $78 million

Mid-sizes of the Bombardier Global Series Jets: Bombardier Global 6000 and Bombardier Global 6500

The Bombardier Global 6000 and Global 6500 both measure 30.3 meters in length and require a four-person crew to operate. The former model has the same 13-passenger capacity as the 5000, while the latter model can carry 17 passengers, surpassing the 5500’s capacity. All four previously mentioned variants have the same wing span (28.7 meters) and height (1.9 meters) (7.8 meters). 

These aircraft have the same engines and maximum speed as the smaller variants, with the Global 6500 performing marginally better than the Global 6000 in this regard. However, their range distinguishes them from their short-fuselage counterparts. In fact, the Global 6000 can travel up to 6,000 NM (11,112 kilometers), while the Global 6500 can travel even further, with a range of 6,600 NM (12,223 km). 

The Global 6000 and 6500 models are 0.80 meters longer than the Global 5000 and 5500 models.

Bombardier Global 6000 price is between $22 million for an older (2012) model and $64 million for a newer (2021) model

Bombardier Global 6500 price is between $56 million for a later model and $43 million for a 2019 model

The smaller of the Bombardier Global Series Jets: Bombardier Global 5000 and Bombardier Global 5500

Despite having the same length, the 5000 and the 5500 have different passenger capacities, with the 5500 able to accommodate three more passengers (16 vs 13). It also has a longer range (5,700 NM vs. 5,200 NM) and higher top speed (Mach 0.9 vs. Mach 0.89, or 690.5 mph vs. 682.9 mph). 

For the latter advantage, the Global 5500 should credit its Rolls-Royce BR700-710D5-21 engines, which provide 15,125 lbf (67.3 kN) of thrust. This is slightly more thrust than the 5000’s Rolls-Royce BR700-710A2-20 turbofans provide, which is 14,750 pounds (65.6 kN). Both locations have a maximum elevation of 51,000 feet. 

The 5500 is the superior performer between the two short-fuselage Global series variants. 

Bombardier Global 5000 price new is about $50 million.

Bombardier Global 5500 price new is about $47 million.
