Aircraft History

In October 1991, Bombardier announced its newest aircraft production program, the Global Express. This was a completely new corporate aircraft, capable of carrying eight passengers and four crew 6,500 nautical miles at Mach 0.80. Powered by Rolls-Royce BR710-A2-20 engines, each BR710 provides 14,690 pounds of thrust. The cabin is 20 feet longer than the Challenger’s, providing a separate crew rest area and a roomier lavatory.
