The Global 6000 jet features the largest cabin of any purpose-built corporate aircraft with 28 per cent more cabin volume and 45 per cent more floor area than its closest competitor. The cabin’s 48-foot four-inch length and eight-foot two-inch width allow for a comfortable three-compartment configuration. For example, the baseline configuration includes an enclosed large aft stateroom with adjacent lavatory for rest and privacy. It also includes a forward club grouping, a mid-cabin conference grouping, and a dedicated forward section comprised of a lavatory, a large galley area and a crew area. The cabin also provides six feet three inches of stand-up height for greater ease of movement.
With the addition of a forward fuel tank in the wing/body fairing, more than 220 U.S. Gallons of useable fuel volume were added over the Global Express jet allowing the newer Global 6000 jet to fly longer distances at higher speeds than any other business aircraft in its class – 6,000 nautical miles at Mach 0.85.
A zero-flaps-takeoff-capability permits Global 6000 jet operators to depart from “hot and high” airports at higher temperatures and with a greater fuel load, reaching more cities from more airports. For example, the aircraft now allows customers to depart Toluca, Mexico, in temperatures of ISA (International Standard Atmosphere) +25°C and reach Madrid, Spain, non-stop. From Johannesburg, South Africa, the aircraft now allows customers to reach any city in Europe when departing in temperatures of ISA +25°C
With the Global Vision flight deck, advanced technology meets with exceptional aesthetics to create a new cockpit experience. The upgrade design features including the application of high quality materials and better overall use of space, resulting in a wider looking flight deck. A great level of attention is dedicated to details, such as the twin needle stitching with contrast thread featured on the yoke, which provides the feel of a luxury vehicle steering wheel. Map lighting, as well as the sun visor, are more aesthetically pleasing and positioned where they are most effective. Storage is increased and designed to integrate smoothly into the cockpit environment.
The unit price is estimated to be $45.5 million (US). For further information contact: www.bombardier.com
