These aircraft also boast superior agility compared to their closest competitors, with the ability to access airports that others can’t, such as London City. Purpose-built Rolls-Royce Pearl engines and a new wing make the Global 5500 and Global 6500 aircraft cleaner and more efficient. The Global 5500 aircraft can connect Sao Paolo and Paris, and Moscow and Los Angeles; the Global 6500 aircraft can connect Hong Kong or Singapore and London, and Toluca and Madrid.
The redesigned cabins aboard these aircraft are stunning as Global cabins are renowned to be, with exclusive features that are as innovative as they are luxurious. Bombardier revealed that the Global 5500 and Global 6500 aircraft will offer the patented Nuage seat, the first new seating architecture in business aviation in more than 30 years. The Nuage seat, with exclusive technologies engineered for maximum comfort and effortless movement, is the perfect asset on a long flight.
An additional seating innovation is available on the Global 5500 and Global 6500 aircraft: the Nuage chaise, which adds new dimensions to the conference suite as a lounge chair that converts into a flat surface for sleeping or banquet-style dining around the table. The class-leading Bombardier Vision flight deck on these new aircraft introduces the first true combined vision system (CVS) in business aviation – the only system to seamlessly merge enhanced and synthetic images in a single view. ■
