Bombardier Global 7500 Business Jet Received Transport Canada Certification
The Global 7500 is the new long-range Business Jet from Canadian manufacturer Bombardier. The aircraft received type certification from Transport Canada on Friday, September 28th, 2018, during a ceremony held at its Global Finishing Centre in Dorval. This milestone comes at the end of a flight test program that ran from November 2016 to September 2018, during which the aircraft exceeded all its initial performance expectations.
Safran Landing Systems provides several pieces of equipment on this aircraft: the Nose Landing Gear, Main Landing Gears and fifty-four Systems Components/LRUs for the aircraft.
This certification attests that the aircraft meets all applicable technical airworthiness requirements and that it complies with customer standards or technical requirements.
Nancy Barber, Bombardier's Global Program Manager, praised the work of the suppliers:
"With certification, we have turned our goal of redefining business travel into a reality. The Global 7500 aircraft is the largest and longest-range business aircraft ever built. […]An accomplishment this significant, from clean-sheet design to certification, would not have been possible without the passion, ingenuity, professionalism and hard work of our valued suppliers." Nancy Barber, Bombardier Program Management, Global 7500 and Global 8000 Program
Bombardier and Safran Landing Systems will now move their focus to the next major milestone of Entry into Service (EIS), which is targeted for the end of 2018.
