Air Space: The Bombardier Global 6000
The Bombardier Global 6000 is the Montreal-based aerospace manufacturer’s premiere entry in the ultra long range large private jet market, competing with Gulfstream’s G650 and Dassault’s Falcon 7X. With more than 100 jets in service, it’s proven a popular choice for discriminating business and luxury travelers.
The Global 6000 emphasizes passenger comforts. Cabin dimensions of 6.2 ft height and 7.11 ft width provide full headroom and aisle space while walking the length of its 48 ft cabin. It comfortably seats up to 13 passengers who can choose to work or relax in any one of three designated cabin sections, including a forward club section with four executive seats, work station with two double seats and conference table, and a sumptuous aft stateroom, complete with a leather divan, executive seating and an optional shower in the private lavatory. The forward galley can serve both hot and cold gourmet meals and beverages. A row of 14 windows on either side provide bright, natural illumination across the cabin. Dedicated temperature zones, acoustic insulation and a controlled cabin pressure of under 6000 ft provide extra levels of passenger comfort, ensuring they are at their best during and after the flight.
An equal amount of attention has been dedicated to improving crew performance. The Bombardier Vision Flight Deck provides state-of-the-art avionic capabilities, with four wide flat-panel displays and enhanced vision systems.
With a cruising speed of 650 mph (Mach 0.85), it can cut hours off commercial flight times and is built to be ready to fly with only 30 minutes notice, ideal for those with fast-paced schedules and whose time is at a premium. The 6000 references its impressive 6000 nautical mile (6899 statute mile) range. Without refueling, this jet can fly passengers from New York to Capetown or San Francisco to Rio de Janeiro, both excellent options for a yacht cruise in the South Atlantic.
Charter rates average $9,000 per flight hour. For a tailored quote, contact The Best of Yachting today at email@example.com.
