Bombardier recently delivered the first Signature Global 6000 to NetJets. A big deal has been made of the delivery of this ultra-long-range business jet since it is the first Global to be delivered as part of one of the largest orders in business aviation history – a deal worth a total of $2.8 billion. Bombardier ceremoniously handed over the keys of the Global 6000 to NetJets in February and unveiled the airplane at the NBAA Convention just a few weeks ago in Orlando, Florida.
Bombardier pulled out all the stops during the delivery ceremony of NetJets’ Global 6000 at the Bombardier’s Global Completion Center hangar in Dorval, Canada. The delivery included a dramatic video (included below) that was partially projected onto the airplane itself.
“Today, NetJets has unquestionably become a part of the Bombardier family,” said Steve Ridolfi, President, Bombardier Business Aircraft.
The Global 6000 is part of NetJets’ Signature Series of new business jets, which include the latest entertainment and cockpit capabilities, including Rockwell Collins’ Pro Line Fusion flight deck. The Signature Global 6000, which NetJets calls “a home away from home,” even includes a stand up shower, a feature that may come in handy on a 13-hour leg.
