Inside the most unique private jet the Bombardier Global 8000

The Global 8000 is set to reinvent the business jet game.

Having been in the works for a few years, Bombardier is set to launch this private plane in 2025.

This is private flying like you’ve never seen it before, setting records for the purest air, longest range, and more.

When it comes to flying in style, Bombardier is the go-to manufacturer.

With celebrities such as Beyonce and Shaq each owning one, you know the company takes luxury seriously.

The Global 8000 is its latest offering in the private arena, with a focus on wellness, productivity and flying in comfort.

The jet will be the fastest business jet in the world, reaching speeds of Mach 0.94.

This just beats the Cessna Citation X+ which has a maximum speed of Mach 0.935.

Generally speaking the faster the flight, the less comfortable it is, but this isn’t the case with Global 8000.

The plane has a specially engineered Smooth Flĕx Wing, which is designed to maximize control and agility at top speeds.

This makes a flight on this plane surprisingly smooth.

Another industry first is the Global 8000’s range.

It will be able to fly 8,000 nautical miles before needing to refuel, more than any other private plane on the market.

What sets this jet apart further is its incredible interior.

The engineers at Bombardier have designed it with wellness and comfort in mind.

The type of passenger this kind of aircraft attracts needs everything from their seat to the air that they breathe to be top of the line.

With the patented Pũr Air technology, Bombardier promises passengers the cleanest cabin air possible.

To add to this comfort, the jet also has the lowest cabin altitude in the business.

“With a cabin altitude of 2,900 feet, feel like you’re strolling through Yosemite National Park,” Bombardier says.

Next is the Nuage seat which has something called the ‘zero-gravity position’.

The seat is the first new seat architecture the jet world has seen in 30 years.

So while other seats recline, none do it quite like the Nuage.

It reclines to a position that improves blood flow, reduces the pressure on your lower back and distributes weight optimally.

Another flying battle that Bombardier is fighting is feeling tired and groggy after a flight.

The Soleil lighting system takes the time zones of departure and arrival as well as flight duration into account.

It then designs a daylight simulation that will eliminate jet lag.

You can also choose for the lights to mimic the gentle sunlight you might experience in the garden or on a yacht.

While most want to rest while flying, some want more of a party plane experience.

Bombardier has catered to these clients too, with the option for the lights to change color in time to whatever music you want to blast through the aircraft’s sound system.
