The Bombardier Global 7500 is a ultra long-range business jet developed by Bombardier Aviation (formerly Bombardier Aerospace). Announced in October 2010, the program was delayed by two years by a wing redesign. The 7500, originally named the 7000, made its first flight on November 4, 2016, was type certified by Transport Canada on September 28, 2018, and entered service on 20 December 2018. Based on the Global 6000 with a new transonic wing, the longer, four-zone cabin 7500 has a range of 7,700 nmi (14,300 km), while the shorter three-zone 8000 was to reach 7,900 nmi (14,600 km).
Announced in October 2010, the jet was initially scheduled for introduction in 2016 for the 7500. In 2015, Bombardier decided to redesign the aircraft’s wing and, along other development challenges, delayed the programme by over two years. The goal of the redesign was to reduce the wing’s weight without altering its aerodynamic profile. The aircraft fly-by-wire system architecture is based on the CSeries one. The airframe will use Aluminium-lithium alloys like the new airliner.
