Bombardier’s Global Express XRS (rebranded in 2011 as Global 6000) is a second generation aircraft in Bombardiers Global family of high speed, large cabin, ultra long range corporate jets. The Global Express XRS was introduced in 2003 as an improved model of its original highly successful Global Express jet. The Global Express family now includes the original Global Express, the Global 5000, Global 6000, Global 7000, and Global 8000. The Global Express XRS featured all the qualities favored by pilots and passengers alike but with a greater range, improved cabin layout and updated avionics. The XRS officially replaced the original Global Express Jet in 2005. When Bombardier later developed plans for larger, longer range jets, the Global 7000 and Global 8000, the XRS was rebranded the Global 6000 to fit with its expanding family of aircraft. The company also ‘dropped’ the ‘Express’ from their brand, and the airplanes are simply ‘Global’ with the number series representative of the range of each aircraft model in nautical miles.
The Global 6000 achieves increased range by an additional fuel tank and improved computer systems for engine and fuel management. The cockpit is outfitted with the Global Vision flight deck, which separates the Global 6000 from its predecessor. It includes Bombardier’s Enhanced Vision System (BEVS), Head-Up flight display and Central Aircraft Maintenance System (CAIMS).
The Global 6000 interior environment is ideally designed for the 12-hour plus flight. This means an oversized galley, a dedicated crew rest area, a spacious main cabin with every amenity, and a traffic-free, light-infused private stateroom in the quietest section of the aircraft.
The Global 6000 boasts the largest and longest seating compartment of any business jet and features three-compartment configurations for privacy and productivity. The forward galley is equipped to store and serve gourmet foods and refreshments. The crew rest area is located separately and to the right of the galley, and sliding section dividers allow the area to be closed off from the seating section for privacy. A private work area is available in the mid-cabin, and a fifth seat can be accommodated to join the conference grouping.
Private lavatories are available in the forward and aft sections of the cabin. The large, luxuriously appointed aft lavatory is accessed from the rear, private stateroom ensuring complete privacy for this rear section.
The windows on the Global 6000 are notable because all 28 of them have been enlarged and strategically placed to bring in more natural light, increase passengers viewing range, and give a bright, open experience to naturally reduce fatigue during flights. The Bombardier Global 6000 aircraft noise reduction technology ensures that noise levels are dramatically lower than on other jets in this class. This also greatly enhances the level of comfort and provides a sense of well-being all passengers deserve to enjoy.
