Bombardier announced that the Global 7500 jet once again proved its unparalleled performance by breaking a significant speed record between Los Angeles and New York, a key city pair.

The award-winning, clean-sheet-design Global 7500 business jet left Van Nuys Airport at 7:01 AM local time on March 24, 2019, and arrived at Teterboro Airport at 1:55 PM local time, completing the coast-to-coast mission in 3 hours and 54 minutes, beating the previously held record established by a competing aircraft manufacturer and making it the fastest business jet ever to complete this route.

During the flight, the aircraft reached a top speed of M 0.925 and sustained that speed for more than two hours, demonstrating exceptional speed capabilities, all while providing the smoothest ride.

Since its entry-into-service, the Global 7500 business jet has proven itself to be the highest-performing aircraft in the industry. With unmatched speed and range capabilities as well as a record-setting 8,152-nautical-mile flight under its belt, the longest flight in business aviation, the Global 7500 aircraft continues to blaze the trail in this new market segment, setting the bar for unprecedented excellence and performance in the world of business aviation.
