Bombardier announced the completion of the 100th wing for its Global 7500 business jet at its facility in Red Oak, Texas.

The advanced wing on the Global 7500 aircraft contributes to the aircraft’s outstanding performance and exceptionally smooth ride. It also plays a significant role in the aircraft’s exceptional short-field capabilities.

The Global 7500 program recently marked its 50th aircraft delivery.

“This is an important milestone for our Global 7500 program, and we are proud of our skilled team in Red Oak, Texas,” said Paul Sislian, Executive Vice President, Operations and Operational Excellence, Bombardier.

“Their dedication and expertise in manufacturing this truly unique wing built exclusively for the Global 7500 business jet, is what helps make it the industry flagship.”

Since its entry into service in 2018, the Global 7500 business jet has demonstrated an outstanding dispatch reliability rate of 99.7% and has proven to be the highest-performing aircraft in the industry. It completed various key speed records and challenging flights, including the longest city-pair flown by a purpose-built business aircraft, connecting Sydney and Detroit non-stop.

The aircraft has received multiple accolades, including the 2019 Aviation Week Grand Laureate Award, the 2019 Robb Report Best of the Best Business Jet of the Year Award, and the 2018 Red Dot Award for Product Design.

With four distinct living spaces plus a dedicated crew rest area, it is unique among business jets in spaciousness, comfort, highly personalized design flexibility, and patented cabin innovations.

Bombardier’s 600-plus employees in Red Oak play a critical role in ensuring the success of the technologically advanced wing program. 

Bombardier is a global leader in aviation, creating innovative and game-changing planes. Our products and services provide world-class experiences that set new standards in passenger comfort, energy efficiency, reliability and safety.
