Bombardier has announced that it will launch an expanded range of its Global series of business jets at the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) convention in Georgia on October 18.
“The Global aircraft family will build upon the existing successful Global 5000 and Global Express XRS jets in the large business aircraft category,” said Steve Ridolfi, president of Bombardier Business Aircraft. “We are focused on introducing aircraft that maximize efficiency while offering ultimate flexibility for our customers. They demand the best the world has to offer and Bombardier Global business aircraft deliver. We look forward to sharing more details about this exciting aircraft family with everyone at our launch event.”
The Global series currently includes the large cabin, long range Global 5000 and the Global Express XRS. It is expected that the new series will include a larger cabin aircraft to compete against the Gulfstream G650, which is expected to enter service in 2012.
