In June 2012, Bombardier received an order for delivering three Global 6000 jets along with five Global 800 jets to an undisclosed customer. The order is worth $507m in total.
Global 6000 is an improved version which replaced the Global Express XRS and Global 5000 aircraft of Bombardier. The length of the Global 6000 aircraft is 30.3m, overall height is 7.8m andwingspan is 28.7m. The Bombardier Global 5000 is a super large business jet. The aircraft features a spacious cabin, extended cockpit and sophisticated communication equipment. Its wing isdesigned for speed and to reduce the effect of turbulence. Global 6000 is fitted with a vision flight deck which is designed for a completely new cockpit experience. The cockpit is fitted with RockwellCollins pro line fusion avionics suite, which features four 15.1-inch liquid crystal display (LCD) screens, third generation enhanced vision system (EVS), head-up display system (HUD) and syntheticvision system (SVS). The aircraft features onboard maintenance system (OMS), a superior diagnostic and troubleshooting tool. It also features an integrated cursor control panel, a synthetic-enhanced vision system and paperless operation enabled by dual electronics charts. It is integrated with a future air navigation system (FANS), controller-pilot datalink communication(CPDLC), wide area augmentation system (WAAS), localiser performance with vertical guidance (LPV) and a MultiScan weather detection system.
Cabin and engines of the luxury business jet
The aircraft features a large cabin, which is 14.7m in length and 2.49m in width with a floor area of 31.1 square metres and volume of 60.6 cubic metres.
The spacious and comfortable cabin can accommodate eight to 19 passengers and two to four crew members. It is fitted with ethernet-based cabin management system which functions throughan on-board local area network (LAN) and wireless LAN.
The aircraft is powered by Rolls-Royce Deutschland BR710A2-20 turbofan engines which provide 65.6kN of thrust at take-off.
