Global Vision flight deck
Launched just three days ago at the 60th National Business Aviation Association convention in Atlanta, Georgia, Global Vision flight deck delivers leading edge design, merged with advanced technology to deliver a completely new flight deck experience. The latest in technological advancements from Rockwell Collins – the new Pro Line Fusion avionics suite – is paired with superior design aesthetics from world-renowned design consultancy firm Design Q, to create the ultimate flight control environment. The Global Vision flight deck, scheduled for certification in the third quarter of 2010 and entry in service in 2011, will provide Global aircraft pilots with an unprecedented level of situational awareness and comfort.
Learjet 60 XR: In service since July 2007, the Learjet 60 XR aircraft is poised to set new standards in performance, comfort, value and versatility in the worldwide midsize jet market. The aircraft’s higher operating altitudes – certified to 51,000 ft (15,545 m) – translate to time savings due to better winds, less traffic and less turbulence. With a high cruise speed of Mach 0.81 (863 km/h), the Learjet 60 XR jet is one of the fastest aircraft in its category. The aircraft can fly Atlanta-Los Angeles non-stop and delivers superior climb capabilities, with proven fuel-efficiency and low direct operating costs per nautical mile*.
Global Express XRS: The pioneering Global Express XRS business jet features the largest cabin of any purpose-built corporate aircraft – offering more cabin volume and more floor space than its closest competitor. No other business jet in the ultra long-range segment matches the high-speed range capability delivered by this aircraft. Offering the ultimate in cabin comfort, this impressive jet can link Atlanta-Moscow non-stop with eight passengers and three-to-four crew*.
