Bombardier’s Global 7500 business jet has flown another mission in excess of 8,000 nautical miles, connecting Sydney and Detroit in one non-stop flight.
According to Bombardier, the flight is the longest city-pair flown in business aviation history.
With low tailwinds averaging approximately 20 knots, the Global 7500 aircraft completed the journey from Sydney, Australia to Detroit, Michigan on October 6, 2019.
Point-to-point distance between the two cities is 8,225 nautical miles, more than the 7,990 nautical mile distance between Singapore and Tucson, which the plane previously flew.
“Since entry-into-service, the Global 7500 aircraft continues to go above and beyond expectations, flying farther and farther, setting new benchmarks for exceptional performance and comfort,” said Peter Likoray, senior vice president of worldwide sales and marketing at Bombardier Business Aircraft. “It’s an incomparable advantage for our customers to know that they can travel great distances in style and ultimate comfort thanks to Bombardier’s signature smooth ride.”
