The Global 5000 is a high speed, large cabin, ultra long range corporate jet aircraft developed and manufactured by Bombardier Aerospace and its subsidiaries. The Global 5000 is the second generation in the Global series and is a shorter version of the original aircraft. Its predecessor, the Global Express, is considered the pioneer of this class and was introduced in 1993.
The 5000 was introduced in 2001 as a design for people needing transcontinental and transoceanic range, but not requiring a flight of more than ten hours nonstop. The Bombardier Global jet family is renown for its distance performance and thus for many in the Middle East and Asia-Pacific region they are the first long-range, large-cabin jets considered by owners and operators.
The 5000 cockpit is outfitted the very pilot friendly Honeywell Primus 2000XP avionics suite modified specifically for the Global 5000. It includes three flight management systems, an enhanced vision system for murky conditions and a head-up display. Many 5000’s have been upgraded with an improved Global Vision avionics suite which enables trips that would otherwise have to be scratched due to weather conditions.
Despite being 5 feet shorter than its predecessor, the passenger cabin is reduced by only ten inches of space. The space reduction came primarily from the crew rest and galley areas as well as a reduction of the oversized galley to a full-sized galley. The Global 5000 still has one of the longest seating areas of any aircraft in its class and this allows for versatility in seating arrangements for up to 17 passengers. Sliding section dividers allow the forward area to be closed off from the seating section for privacy.
The rearmost compartment may be configured by Bombardier designers as the aft stateroom. It has its own lavatory with the other lavatory being at the front.
The cabin is very comfortable with improved insulation that ensures noise levels never exceed 52 dB (the sound of a running refrigerator in a quiet house). A larger window design allows in more natural light and long-life LEDs provide better and more soothing cabin lighting. There is even the option of special seat cushions by NASA which mold to the passenger’s body when activated by their body heat.
The Rockwell Collins Cabin Electronics system provides provides “best in business aviation” cabin management. The cabin features three independently controlled temperature zones, links to a full suite of office tools including email, web browsing, satellite telephones, printer/scanner, as well as a broad range of entertainment options – all at your fingertips.
