Bombardier recently unveiled the full-scale mock-up of its new Global 7000 aircraft – a game changer in business aviation – during a breathtaking show at the European Business Aviation Conference and Exhibition (EBACE) in Geneva, Switzerland.
The unveiling took the form of a shadow show, with dancers acting out the life of high-net worth individuals, made easy and efficient aboard a Global 7000 jet.

The impressive full-size mock-up is the largest built in business aviation. It showcases the aircraft’s unparalleled spaciousness, luxury and comfort. With its four distinct living spaces, including a private stateroom, the Global 7000 business jet will allow passengers to work, eat, sleep and relax in a comfortable environment. This aircraft also features the state-of-the-art Bombardier Vision flight deck and the largest total window area, allowing for more natural light inside the cabin and ensuring the right spacing so that every seat and table is centered on a window.
From a 6-place dining room, to a reclining sofa and a 40-inch TV in the home theatre room, wardrobe, bookcase and a double bed in the stateroom, every detail has been considered to create a truly elegant environment for the long-distance traveler.
The new cabin styling includes beautiful but understated detailing and materials selection. It also showcases a very architectural approach to lighting: features as simple as a lamp placed on a cabinet, unconventional in aviation, create tremendous warmth and coziness in the interior.
Launched in 2010 and set to enter-into-service in 2016 and 2017 respectively, the Global 7000 and Global 8000 jets exemplify Bombardier’s visionary thinking. Both aircraft will have the ability to reach more destinations non-stop than ever before, delivering unprecedented levels of performance, flexibility, and comfort.
While the Global 7000 will set the standard for a new category of large business jets with the first true four-zone cabin, the Global 8000 will be the world’s farthest-range business jet. At an unsurpassed M 0.90* high-speed cruise ability, it will fly passengers in ultimate comfort between cities such as Los Angeles and Sydney or Geneva and Bali.
The Global 7000 aircraft mock-up is now in Farnborough, England for the coming weeks, and will embark on a worldwide tour later this summer.
