  1. Latest On Global 7000 Program By Bombardier
    Canadian airframer Bombardier's Global 7000 program is progressing well and the testing has surpassed 500 flight hours with FTV 4 and FTV5 in final phases of production. The first Flight Test Vehicle has been flying since November 2016 and since then two test articles joined the program. Overall when all five test articles have been engaged, Bombardier will look for certification by the second half of 2018. Even the first set of customer bound Global 7000s are currently in production ahead of certification to ensure a smooth transition into full customer production.
  2. “The three flight-test vehicles have been meeting all performance and reliability expectations for this stage in the flight-test program, and the pace of testing will continue to accelerate with the two remaining FTVs progressing well toward their respective first flights,” said Michel Ouellette, the senior vice president of the Global 7000 and 8000 program. “With more than 500 flight test hours already logged, the program's development and certification schedule is on track. Our confidence level is high as we accumulate more flight hours and push towards entry-into-service in the second half of 2018.”
