Bombardier unveils largest business jet
BOMBARDIER HAS LAUNCHED what is billed as the world’s largest purpose-built business jet complete with four living spaces, full-sized crew rest area and gourmet galley. The Architect – the fourth Global 7000 flight test plane (FTV4) – can host eight passengers and offers a range of 7,400nm, meaning it could operate nonstop between Dubai and New York. On board passengers can watch high-definition content via the Ka-Band system. Bombardier is also working on a fifth flight test vehicle, The Masterpiece, which is targeting a 2018 service entry.
