The Bombardier Global 7500 is an ultra-long-range private jet designed and manufactured by Bombardier Aerospace, introduced in 2018. It is part of the popular Bombardier Global family of business jets, which includes several models, such as the Global 5000, Global 5500, Global 6000, Global 6500, and Global 8000.

Development of the Global 7500 began in the early 2010s. The goal was to create a new ultra-long-range business jet that would offer record-setting speed, range, and comfort. It made its first flight in November 2016.
In AIN, Matt Thurber writes, “When Bombardier announced two new jets in the Global series—the Global 7000 and 8000—in 2010, the clear intention was that the Canadian manufacturer planned to take away the mantle of building the largest purpose-built business jet from Gulfstream Aerospace’s 7,500-nm G650ER. Originally the two new airplanes were meant to complement each other, with the larger 7000 projected to fly 7,400 nm while the shorter 8000 would fly the farthest at 7,900 nm. But times, and markets, change. Bombardier engineers carved out 300 nm more range for the 7000—for a Mach .85 NBAA IFR range of 7,700 nm—and the jet’s moniker was changed to Global 7500.”
The cabin has a 6.2 feet height, a width of 8.0 feet, and a length of 54.5 feet. It provides multiple layout options in up to five zones.
Flying magazine writes, “The cabin is 12 feet longer than the interior of a Global 6500, providing space for four cabin sections plus a full-size crew rest compartment up front. And it’s not just about what this luxury aircraft can do in the air, but how well it cossets passengers in the process. This begins with offering them more cabin window area than any other large-cabin aircraft. The transparencies are substantially larger than the Airbus-size windows on other Globals, so the interior is flooded with bright ambient light. Bombardier’s Soleil cabin lighting system automatically adjusts the intensity and color of the interior lights throughout the flight to help passengers adjust to time zone changes by the simulating day, dusk, night, and dawn ambient light conditions.”
The Global has a maximum range of up to 7,700 nautical miles (8,861 miles). It has a maximum cruise speed of Mach 0.925 and can fly at a maximum altitude of 51,000 feet. It set a world record by flying nonstop from Singapore to Tucson, Arizona, covering 8,152 nautical miles (9,350 miles) in 16 hours and 6 minutes. It landed with 4,300 pounds of fuel to spare. That’s enough to fly for another 90 minutes.
The price for a new Global 7500 is $81 million.
Walk around the Global 7500, and each time, the sheer size and girth of this capacious Canadian cruiser always impresses. This flying Feadship is all about air supremacy, being the largest, heaviest and roomiest purpose-built business jet yet to enter production. It measures 111 ft. from nose to tail, spans 104 ft. and reaches 27 ft. in height, with a maximum ramp weight of more than 115,000 lb. That’s more girth than a Boeing 717 or BAC 1-11.
For the longest trips where extra crew may be necessary, there’s even a dedicated suite that you can configure with bunk beds. Beyond the kitchen, forward lavatory, and crew rest area is the club suite, equipped with four of Bombardier’s newly designed Nuage seats, and two deployable side tables. Next is the conference suite, offering seating for six and a dining table that can be set up to span the width of the cabin. In the entertainment suite, passengers can kick back and watch a movie in an atmosphere that feels as cozy as a living room, and the divan is berthable. Finally, the aftmost suite offers a dedicated bed, work area, and lavatory with an optional shower. There’s also a wardrobe and unrestricted access to the baggage compartment.
Dubbed the Ferrari of the Skies, the company unveiled the $75 million Global 7500 business plane in 2018 and has delivered over 100 to date.
