UPDATE August 21, 2017 - Statement on the Global 7000 Aircraft Flight Test Program

August 21, 2017 Montréal Business Aircraft,  Other News

Safety is our top priority. Our test pilots, following an occurrence last week, followed standard procedures and returned to base uneventfully.

Bombardier and GE have determined that the root cause of last week’s reported occurrence was an isolated event.

The Global 7000 aircraft program’s flight and ground test campaigns continue on track for entry-into-service in the second half of 2018 and GE’s Passport engine received its Federal Aviation Association (FAA) type certification in early 2016.

The first six customer aircraft are now in production and final assembly line activities are ramping up.
