Our Guide to the Bombardier Global 6000

A Large Business Jet Designed for Productivity

Bombardier released the Global 6000 into service in 2012 as a direct descendant of the highly-successful Global Express. It was manufactured through 2019 as a competitor of the Gulfstream G650ER or Dassault Falcon 8X, large business jets capable of flying long distances without stopping.

In the case of the Global 6000, the jet can fly up to 12 hours, guided by a two-person crew, without layovers or refueling. A massive jet with a 94-foot wingspan and more than 99 feet long, nose to tail, the Global 6000 is powerful and built for productivity in the air. Indeed, it is one of the most well-equipped jets in the world and makes travel a pleasure for C-suite leaders taking care of business around the world.

Inside the Plane Cabin of This Large Private Jet
With the widest cabin in its class, the Bombardier Global 6000 offers more room than its competitors and plenty of amenities your company’s leaders will appreciate as they spend hours aboard. The full-height cabin that’s 6 feet, 2 inches tall; 7 feet, 11 inches wide; and 43 feet, 3 inches long. It is separated into three spacious zones.

Upon entering, pass through a sound-insulating entry door with closeout curtains for the cockpit. Passengers proceed through the well-appointed galley that includes an oven, microwave, sink and faucet, coffee/espresso machine, ice drawer, chilled storage, and work surface and past a lavatory with a mirror, vanity, and sink. The latest models have wood or stone flooring as options in these cabin areas; older versions of this business jet may not have the same finishes. Near the galley is a dedicated and private crew rest area for taking breaks on long-haul flights, as well as a wardrobe for personal items.

Passengers pass through a sound-insulating sliding door to enter the main cabin, where they’ll find flexible seating arrangements for up to 17 passengers, including executive seating in a club configuration and a conference table. Each seat swivels 180-degrees, tracks, reclines, and is berthing-capable for peaceful sleep; the three-seat divan also converts to a sleeping area. The interior baggage compartment is 193 cubic feet, large enough to stow 20 to 30 medium suitcases.

Each executive seat has its own dedicated side ledge tables, and the cabin includes a credenza that stores the entertainment equipment. The media center includes HDMI and USB ports. Two 24” high-definition monitors, in-flight internet, and wireless music streaming capability on the newest models make the cabin feel a lot like home when the work day concludes. Advanced soundproofing materials and proprietary design techniques contribute to the quietest flight ever; this large business jet achieved the lowest in-class sound levels.

Inside the Cockpit of the Bombardier Global 6000
The cockpit is just as well-appointed as the passenger areas of the plane, with double-stitched leather seats, brushed metallic controls, and carbon fiber accents (on some model years), which blends with the cabin design.

The industry-leading flight deck reduces pilot workload and makes flying the Bombardier Global 6000 more efficient and safe. Two pilots utilize the Rockwell Collins Pro Line Fusion suite, with four high-definition screens and synthetic vision augmented reality capabilities on the head-up display. MultiScan weather radar, enhanced vision system, graphical flight planning, and the latest performance-based navigation, controller pilot data link, and high-speed SATCOM are all part of the Bombardier Vision flight deck.
