When the Bombardier Global Express was first introduced in 1993, it had the largest passenger cabin of any private jet. Back then, it was also the only private jet capable of long-distance nonstop flights to the Far East from anywhere along the US East Coast or in Western Europe.
The Global Express possesses remarkable performance for a heavy business jet and more typical of a commercial airline. It boasts a top speed of 499 knots, a cruising speed of 488 knots, and a cruising altitude of 42,000 feet. The aircraft also features an automatic cabin pressurization system that continually adjusts cabin pressure while in flight with little to no input from the pilot.
The biggest asset of the Global Express is its passenger cabin which offers optimum comfort and amenities which today’s business travelers consider as necessities for transoceanic flights. The cabin measures 48.4 x 6.3 x 8.2 feet and can be configured to accommodate between 13 and 19 passengers. Cabin amenities include but are not limited to an entertainment system with CD and DVD players, individual video screens, a fax machine, and a full-sized galley. There are also 2 full-enclosed lavatories, one of which may even be fitted with a shower. The entire cabin is adequately soundproofed, thus further reducing the audible noise of the aircraft’s already efficient turbofan engines
