BOMBARDIER GLOBAL 5000
- Passengers 13
With one of the widest cabins in the heavy jet class, the Bombardier Global 5000 is renowned for its efficiency, speed and comfort.
- The Bombardier Global 5000 was introduced in 2005, based on the Global Express but with a shorter cabin and decreased range.
- Despite its lesser range, the Global 5000 can still complete journeys like Paris to Chicago and London to Mumbai.
- The cabin of a Bombardier Global 5000 is typically configured to seat 13 passengers. A high-density layout can seat up to 17 with three divans in the cabin, plus an 18th seat in the enclosed lavatory if needed (rarely used for charters).
- The generous baggage hold has space for around 25 suitcases.
- Production of the Bombardier Global 5000 ceased in 2020.
The Bombardier Global 5000 is renowned for its luxurious interior and efficiency compared to rivals including Bombardier’s own Global XRS (6000).
The Bombardier Global 5000 is one of the most spacious aircraft in its class, with ample space in the cabin for 13-17 passengers and a layout that’s perfect for meetings, entertainment, dining and relaxation.
The main seating area has three sections: a four-chair club; a conference grouping on the left and credenza on the right in the mid-cabin; and a stateroom with two facing chairs on the left and a three-seater divan on the right. Some aircraft have been customised with three individual chairs in the mid-cabin and/or two three-seater divans towards the tail. Impressive sound suppression and cabin altitude help to mitigate travel fatigue.
The Global 5000’s baggage compartment can be accessed throughout your flight.
Below are two typical configurations found onboard a Global 5000.
- The cabin is extremely quiet, with cruise flight sound levels at 52 decibels – similar to a regular conversation or a working fridge.
- The Global 5000’s cabin is roomier than competitors like the Gulfstream G450 and Dassault Falcon 900EX, with its cross-section (just over 8 ft at centerline), seating area (about 27 ft long), and headroom (6ft 3in) among the best in its class.
- Able to perform on shorter runways and steep approaches, the versatile Global 5000 appeals to those who don’t regularly require the range of a Bombardier Global XRS.
The Global 5000 is fitted with two Rolls-Royce BR710A2-20 turbofan engines, mounted at the sides of the rear fuselage.
Inside is a six-screen Honeywell Primus 2000XP EFIS suite, updated with flat-panel Rockwell Collins Fusion avionics from 2012. A unique combination of features, such as a synthetic vision system on the head-up display and a MultiScan weather radar, enhances situational awareness at any time and in any weather. The industry-leading flight deck’s ergonomics and aesthetics give pilots comfort and control for a more efficient flight experience.
Bombardier started developing the Global Express in the early 1990s. The long-range business jet was announced at the NBAA convention in October 1991, with the programme launched in December 1993.
The first prototype made its maiden flight in October 1996 and Canadian certification was granted in July 1998, followed by European and U.S. certification shortly after. The Global Express entered service in July 1999.
The Global 5000 was announced in October 2001, launched in February 2002 and first flew in March 2003. It was introduced in April 2005 and upgraded three years later to increase its performance and range. Avionics were updated in 2012 and the current Bombardier Vision flight deck is one of business aviation’s most advanced avionics suites.
Bombardier Aviation (formerly Bombardier Aerospace) manufactures business, commercial and specialised aircraft. The company began with the acquisition of several established aviation companies, starting with Canadair in 1986 and followed by Short Brothers in 1989, Learjet in 1990 and Boeing subsidiary De Havilland Aircraft of Canada in 1992.
Following commercial aviation partnerships with Chinese state-owned manufacturer Comac and multinational aerospace corporation Airbus, Bombardier eventually sold de Havilland and its aerostructures division to focus solely on business aircraft.
Headquartered in Montreal, Canada, today Bombardier has over 60,000 employees and is a leading global manufacturer of aircraft and trains with sites in 25 countries.
A newer Bombardier Global 5000 costs around $50.40 million (USD). An older pre-owned model can be priced from $28 million.
