MONTREAL – Business – Bombardier has delivered the first of three Global 6000 business jets destined for use by the Luftwaffe, Germany’s air force.
The Luftwaffe, a longtime Bombardier aircraft operator, will use the Global 6000 business jets to fulfill political and parliamentary transport requirements.
“Bombardier is incredibly pleased that the Luftwaffe will add the Global 6000 aircraft to its fleet,” said David Coleal, President, Bombardier Aviation. “Our Specialized Aircraft team has built longstanding relationships with governments around the world who trust in the safety and performance of our products.”
Bombardier’s Specialized Aircraft division delivers custom solutions to operators, with a diverse portfolio of aircraft that can fly the most demanding and critical missions in various configurations. Bombardier Global aircraft are especially attractive because of their excellent dispatch reliability, speed, agility, endurance, and optimized operating costs.
Powered by Rolls-Royce BR710 engines, developed and manufactured by Rolls-Royce Deutschland in Dahlewitz, Germany, the Global 6000 aircraft has enough range for non-stop flights between continents, which is ideal for political and parliamentary transport requirements. The Global 6000aircraft also delivers a smooth ride that reduces the fatigue of frequent travel for both passengers and crew, while its advanced Bombardier Vision flight deck features a head-up display with both Enhanced and Synthetic Vision for a better pilot experience.
The delivery of the Global 6000 aircraft deepens Bombardier’s substantial ties to Germany, where it is the leading provider of business jets. Bombardier Transportation, a global rail industry leader, is headquartered in Berlin.
