In 2012 with the entry into service of the Gulfstream G650 (Model GVI), a new era of Ultra-Long-Range (> 7000 nm) purpose-built Business Jets was launched. Although highly impacted by continuous delays and cost overruns with its CSeries commercial aircraft family, Bombardier had to respond with the launch of the Global 7000 and 8000 family program that soon converged with the delivery of the current industry flagship, the Global 7500. The Ultra-Long-Range offerings will soon be extended with the addition of the state-of-the-art Gulfstream G700 and G800 and a clean sheet design from Dassault Aviation, the extra widebody Falcon 10X. Let’s look at what’s today the most advanced and dynamic segment of Business Aviation!
The aircraft joins the first outfitted G700, which has already set eight international city-pair speed records and was awarded the 2022 International Yacht & Aviation Award in the Private Jet Design category.
