Bombardier’s Global 7500 aircraft has completed the longest-range business jet flight in history – an 8,152-nautical-mile flight non-stop.
The business jet departed Singapore Changi Airport at 7:12am local time and arrived at Tucson International Airport, Arizona, at 8:19am local time, completing the long-range speed record flight for the city-pair.
David Coleal, president at Bombardier Business Aircraft, said, “The Global 7500 aircraft was built to break all the records. It achieved the industry’s longest mission ever in business aviation after only two months in service.
“We’ve demonstrated its unequaled long-range and high-speed capabilities, but also its ability to break records confidently with healthy fuel reserves remaining, once again, confirming its unsurpassed performance to customers.”
Over the last two months, this first aircraft has completed more than 170 hours of flight around the world.
