Bombardier Celebrates Entry-into-service of the Global 6500 Jet
Bombardier celebrates the entry-into-service of the latest addition to its Global family, the Global 6500 jet. This achievement comes on the heels of Transport Canada certification of both the Global 5500 and Global 6500 awarded on September 24
“We are celebrating a significant milestone today with the entry-into-service of this exceptional aircraft,” said David Coleal, President, Bombardier Aviation. “We’re proud of the work our team and our suppliers have done to deliver a technologically advanced aircraft that exceeds our customers’ expectations in terms of unparalleled comfort, superior performance and an incomparable smooth ride. The Global 6500 business jet continues to maintain the longstanding winning DNA of our Global family of aircraft, the most successful long-range business jet platform.”
The aircraft went through the rigorous flight testing program, which was completed at Bombardier’s world-class test centre in Wichita, Kansas. The Pearl 15 engine, the latest addition to Rolls-Royce’s exceptional business aviation engine portfolio, received EASA certification in 2018 and Transport Canada certification recently. The engine, developed at the Rolls-Royce Centre of Excellence for Business Aviation engines in Dahlewitz, Germany, was custom-designed with the most innovative technology – including enhanced aerodynamics, blade cooling and advanced engine health monitoring systems – to power the Global 5500 and Global 6500 aircraft.
