TTTech congratulates Bombardier on this success and is proud to be on board with deterministic TTP (SAE AS6003) databus network for the Parker fly-by-wire (FBW) system and Collins Aerospace Flight Control Computer. The Bombardier Global aircraft flew for 15,764 km (8,152 nm) nonstop, making it the longest flight a business jet has ever completed.
The aircraft took off from Singapore Changi Airport (SIN) on March 3 and landed safely at the Tucson International Airport (TUS), United States. Upon landing the Global 7500 still had fuel reserves that would have lasted for nearly 1.5 hours of additional flight. According to Bombardier, the Global 7500 also set a new speed record over the longest range. “The Global 7500 aircraft was built to break all the records,” said David Coleal, President, Bombardier Business Aircraft. “It achieved the industry’s longest mission ever in business aviation after only two months in service. We’ve demonstrated its unequaled long-range and highspeed capabilities, but also its ability to break records confidently with healthy fuel reserves remaining, once again, confirming its unsurpassed performance to customers.”
Over the last two months, the Bombardier Global 7500 jet has demonstrated exceptional performance and reliability, this first aircraft has completed more than 170 hours of flight around the world.
A video about the record is available on the Bombardier website.
