Third Global 7000 joins flight test program

A third Bombardier Global 7000 flight test vehicle (FTV3) has made its maiden flight. The test program began in November 2016 and has already seen a Global 7000 reach a milestone top speed of Mach 0.995.

“Our test program’s development and certification schedule is on track, and the addition of our third flight test vehicle is in line with our commitment for certification in 2018 as we accumulate more flight hours,” said Michel Ouellette, senior vice president, Global 7000 and Global 8000 program.

FTV3, which is equipped with a dual head-up display, will be used to test avionics and electrical system performance.

The Global 7000 will feature four distinct living spaces plus a crew rest area. Ka-band connectivity will enable passengers to stream HD content. The aircraft will have a range of 7,400 nautical miles at Mach 0.85.
