Three subsidiaries of Bombardier are responsible for the three parts of the project: Canadair is the main designer and manufactures the nose of the aircraft; Short Brothers is responsible for the production and development of the nacelle, front fuselage and horizontal stabilizers; de Havilland Canada builds a vertical stabilizer, the back of the fuselage, and assembles the entire aircraft. The largest foreign partner is the Japanese company Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, which is responsible for the production of the center section and wings.

Global 5000

Global 5000

Global 5000 (internal index BD7001A11) was designed on the basis of the GlobalExpress model, has a shorter fuselage on the 81,3 and shorter range by 2200 km. The model places up to 19 passengers.

Airplanes in Toronto gather on the line, where GlobalExpressXRS, and then unpainted in Saokiya, Montreal, Savannah fly for the final assembly.

First Global5000 in the air rose 7.03.2003. During the first flight were tested major systems, flight characteristics and controllability of the aircraft. In June 2003 Global5000 was first shown at the air show in LeBurzhe.

Global5000 can fly at about 9300km 850km / h speed without refueling.

Global 6000

Global 6000

Global6000 (previously known as GlobalXRS) is the best variation of the initial model. The plane has great speed, increased range, improved lighting and cabin layout. The increase in range is achieved by installing an additional tank on the 674kg. fuel in the main part of the wing. The first GlobalExpressXRS was delivered to the customer at the beginning of 2006. The price of the aircraft is approximately 45,5 million dollars.
