ZenithJet has revealed that it was able to experience the first Bombardier Global 7500 before anyone outside the OEM, as the completions oversight provider
ZenithJet, a leading business aviation services firm for Bombardier Global aircraft, revealed that it was the completions oversight provider for the first Bombardier Global 7500 production aircraft to enter service.
“Our client selected ZenithJet on the strength of our unique expertise with Global aircraft,” says George Tsopeis, President, ZenithJet. “We put the aircraft through a rigorous review process and it did not disappoint. We were impressed by the state-of-the-art design elements on the aircraft, which significantly improve the cabin experience by giving it that “home in the sky” feel.
“With the first delivery now complete, we can appreciate that we had the privilege of experiencing this innovative aircraft before virtually anyone outside Bombardier.
“For ZenithJet, this project represents our validation as the industry’s preeminent completions oversight provider for Global business jets.
“We congratulate the Bombardier team on their significant achievement and look forward to working with clients worldwide as deliveries of Global 7500 aircraft continue to ramp up in 2019 and beyond,” concluded Tsopeis.
The new Global 7500 has a 16-passenger configuration for take-off and landing, consisting of up to 13 passengers and three crew. When at capacity, the divan is used to accommodate two passengers for take-off and landing.
The Global 7500 interior is divided into four distinct living spaces: the interior provided by ZenithJet consists of a Club Suite, with four patented ergonomically-adjustable executive Nuage seats, two concealable side-tables, detailed side ledges, six ultra-large windows and a large wall-mounted high definition TV. This leads through to the Conference Suite, which has a six-seat meeting and dining space, dining table with removable leaf and concealable side table, large wall-mounted high definition TV and six ultra-large windows.
Further through the cabin is the third zone, the Entertainment Suite. Here guests can enjoy a three-place berthable divan, large entertainment cabinet with media storage, large screen high definition TV, immersive audio system and six ultra large windows.
Finally we reach the private suite, with a permanent bed, patented ergonomically-adjustable executive Nuage seat, concealable side table, wardrobe monument, large high definition TV and six ultra large windows.
The aircraft is also equipped throughout with the all-new nice Touch cabin management system, designed exclusively for the Global 7500 aircraft, which dials up the cabin experience, redefining the way that passengers interact with the cabin and their content.
If the inflight entertainment isn’t enough, take a look outside. The new larger and evenly spaced windows on the Global 7500 aircraft provide more natural light than any other cabin in business aviation, as well as providing every passenger with a window seat.
The flight crew are also well cared for as the Global 7500 has a separate, spacious and fully-equipped crew rest area, with two extra-large windows. It is designed to maximise comfort and privacy on long-haul flights, ensuring the crew are rested and alert.
Take a seat
With a range of up to 16 hours non-stop, it is important that cabin seats are comfortable. Bombardier has fitted the patented Nuage seat, which has been engineered for maximum comfort and ease of movement, with a tilt link system for deep recline, a floating base for fluid movement and a tilting headrest to provide optimal neck support in any position.
