The high-speed Bombardier Global 5000 and the
Special Edition Bombardier Learjet 60 business jets are among the top draws at the International Aviation and Space Salon (MAKS 2005) in Moscow, August 16-21. The two new Bombardier corporate aircraft are making their first ever appearance together in Russia, complete with fully equipped production interiors.
"Bombardier continues to introduce new aircraft that offer superior performance and value, two of the key drivers behind our rapidly growing presence in Russia," stated Bob Horner, Vice-President, Sales, Europe, Middle East and Africa, Bombardier Business Aircraft. "Customers in the region are demonstrating a strong preference for Bombardier business jets, with 14 Challenger and 15 Global aircraft either delivered or on order in Russia and Eastern Europe. Demand for business aviation is soaring and Bombardier is committed to supporting this demand with the industry's most complete line of corporate jets and innovative services."
The Bombardier Global 5000 business jet combines comfort, speed and the most technologically advanced cabin in its class. In service since April 2005, this super-large jet can reach speeds up to Mach 0.89 and connect Moscow-New York non-stop at Mach 0.85 - while flying passengers in the largest cabin in its class. The aircraft features the first-ever Ethernet-based Airshow 21 Cabin Electronic System application, including a host of entertainment options and baseline high-speed data connectivity.
Introduced in October 2004, the Special Edition Learjet 60 is a powerful transcontinental business jet that delivers superior long-range cruise speed, outstanding climb capabilities, superior dispatch reliability rate and proven, fuel efficient engines. The aircraft features over $1 million U.S. in sophisticated avionics and interior options as standard equipment.
