First Global 6000 delivered to German Air Force
Bombardier has delivered the first Global 6000 jet to the German Air Force, the company announced on 17 September.
This is the first of three jets that will be delivered for VIP transport missions.
Powered by Rolls-Royce BR710 engines, the Global 6000 aircraft are being delivered by Bombardier’s Specialized Aircraft division fitted with the Bombardier Vision flight deck featuring a head-up display with both enhanced and synthetic vision.
David Coleal, president, Bombardier Aviation, said: ‘Bombardier is incredibly pleased that the Luftwaffe will add the Global 6000 aircraft to its fleet. Our Specialized Aircraft team has built longstanding relationships with governments around the world who trust in the safety and performance of our products.’
The remaining two jets will be delivered by the end of 2019.
