The Global 6000 is an ultra-long-range jet developed and manufactured by Canadian manufacturer Bombardier.

Formerly marketed as the Global XRS, the Bombardier Global 6000 entered commercial service in 2005 and remains in production to date.

Based on Bombardier’s original Global Express, the Global 6000 incorporates improved handling, a higher cruise speed, improved cabin layout and lighting, as well as an upgraded Rockwell Collins Pro Line Fusion avionics suite.

The Global 6000’s typical cabin configuration typically accommodates 14 passengers. Boasting a maximum range of 11,112km (6,000nm), the Global 6000 brings most intercontinental city pairs within reach or all with one fuel stop.

The Bombardier Global 5000 is an ultra-long-range jet developed and manufactured by Bombardier.

Announced in 2001, the Global 5000 was the second aircraft to be developed in the Bombardier Global Express family. Developed with a shorter cabin and lower range than the Global Express, the Global 5000 was aimed at operators requiring the trusted reliability and performance of its predecessor but not the extreme range capabilities.

With a maximum range of 9,630km (5,200nm), the intercontinental Bombardier Global 5000 makes all but the longest missions possible, capable of flying non-stop from continental Europe to central North America.

The Gulfstream G650 is an ultra-long-range jet designed and manufactured by Gulfstream Aerospace in the United States. First flying in November 2009, the Gulfstream G650 entered service in December 2012.

Boasting an impressive maximum range of 12,964km (7,000nm), the G650 brings most intercontinental city pairs within reach without the requirement of a fuel stop. Following the success of the initial G650 program, Gulfstream developed the G650ER which boasts an extended range of some 926km (500nm).

Since its introduction to service, the G650 and G650ER have seen over 500 airframes manufactured and delivered to operators all over the world. The G650 is also used by many Government bodies for transporting heads of state and officials on international and intercontinental duties.

The Dassault Falcon 7X is an ultra-long-range jet developed and manufactured by Dassault Aviation of France.

First flying in 2005, the Falcon 7X entered service two years later in mid-2017. Designed as Dassault’s third three-engined business jet, following on from the earlier Falcon 50 and Falcon 900, the 7X is one of the French manufacturer’s best selling business jet. As of 2020, the Falcon 7X had seen just short of 300 deliveries.

The Falcon 7X is reputable for its speed and cabin comfort. In 2014, the Falcon 7X set a new transatlantic speed record after flying Teterboro (New York) to London City in 5 hours 54 minutes. Additionally, the aircraft’s cabin design makes the 7X one of the quietest aircraft in the ultra-long-range category.

The Global 7500 is Bombardier’s flagship ultra-long-range jet and is the most recent development of the Global Express family of aircraft developed and manufactured by Bombardier Aerospace.

With a cabin some 3.41m (11ft) longer than Bombardier’s previous flagship, the Global 6000, the 7500 shares only a few commonalities with its predecessors.

The Bombardier Global 7500 features and all-new wing design and incorporates a fly-by-wire flight control system. Thinner structural frames allow for an increase in cabin width and height over earlier models, and the cabin windows of the 7500 are some 80% larger than Bombardier’s previous models.

Cabin enhancements are endless on the Global 7500. New features include a L’Opera sound system, Soleil lighting system and Bombardier’s new ergonomic Nuage passenger seat design.

Powered by General Electric Passport 20 high bypass turbofan engines, the Bombardier Global 7500 boasts an industry-leading 7,700 nautical mile range and a top speed of Mach 0.925. Combined with unrivalled short-field performance, the Global 7500 is incredibly versatile and suitable for almost any mission.

The Bombardier Global Express is an ultra-long-range jet developed and manufactured by Bombardier.

Following the success of the smaller Bombardier Challenger 600 series, Bombardier developed the Global Express as their entry to the ultra-long-range private jet market. First flying in 1996, the Global Express entered service three years later and has since gone on to form the foundational design for the newer Global 5000, 6000 and XRS ultra-long-range jets.

The Global Express carries over the same cross-sectional fuselage dimensions as the Challenger 600 series, however the fuselage is stretched significantly which allows the cabin to be partitioned. The Global Express incorporates an all-new wing and tail design, and is powered by BMW Rolls-Royce BR710 turbofan engines.

The Bombardier Global Express has a service ceiling of 15,545m (51,000ft) and a maximum range of 12,400km (6,695nm) allowing it to make non-stop intercontinental flights such as New York to Tokyo.
