Bombardier Unveils the Largest Mock-Up in Business Aviation: The Global 7000

- Bombardier today presented the full-scale mock-up of its new Global 7000 aircraft-a game changer in business aviation

GENEVA, SWITZERLAND -- (Marketwired) -- 05/20/14 -- Bombardier Aerospace today unveiled the full-scale mock-up of its new Global 7000 aircraft during a breathtaking show at the European Business Aviation Conference and Exhibition (EBACE) in Geneva, Switzerland. Global 7000 and Global 8000 aircraft customers were in attendance.

The impressive full-size mock-up, the largest built in business aviation, showcases the aircraft's unparalleled spaciousness, luxury and comfort. With its four distinct living spaces, including a private stateroom, the Global 7000 business jet will allow passengers to work, eat, sleep and relax in a comfortable environment. This aircraft also features the largest total window area, allowing for more natural light inside the cabin and the state-of-the-art Bombardier Vision flight deck.

"We are extremely proud to present the mock-up of the Global 7000 aircraft here at EBACE, an event that gathers the world's key players in business aviation. The new Global 7000 business jet's breakthrough design illustrates how Bombardier is well ahead of the curve when it comes to offering the ultimate level of comfort," said Eric Martel, President, Bombardier Business Aircraft. "This aircraft is the first business jet to offer a true four-zone cabin to satisfy the increasing travel needs of customers and will offer the most comfortable long-flight experience to passengers and crew members," he added.

As announced last week, the Global 7000 and Global 8000 program is progressing well in the detailed design phase with the majority of the production drawings already released. The assembly of major structures has started at Bombardier and our suppliers' facilities.

Launched in 2010 and set to enter-into-service in 2016 and 2017 respectively, the Global 7000 and Global 8000 jets exemplify Bombardier's visionary thinking. They will have the ability to reach more destinations non-stop than ever before, delivering unprecedented levels of performance, flexibility, and comfort.

Building a robust support offering prior to entry-into-service

Bombardier is dedicated to finding more ways to put its customers first and provide them with a competitive advantage. Over the last few years, Bombardier has been actively gathering customer feedback to help develop first-class services for its best-in-class Global 7000 and Global 8000 aircraft throughout their life cycle. The Customer Services team has been thoroughly working at integrating Global 7000 and Global 8000 aircraft customers into an extensive network of services. This network includes regional support offices, parts depots and hubs, wholly owned service centres, authorized service facilities, Bombardier training centres, in-service engineering teams, 24/7 Customer Response Centres and a deployed Customer Response Team.

Building on over 27 years of OEM cost-per-flight-hour experience, Global 7000 and Global 8000 aircraft customers will benefit from Smart Services programs. Customers will also be presented with Bombardier's strongest cost-per-flight-hour component coverage program, Smart Parts Preferred and a newly designed Smart Maintenance Plus program for even greater coverage extending into scheduled labour and more.

Overall, Bombardier will ensure convenience and peace of mind to its customers as they choose from a bundle of service offerings most suitable to their needs.
