The Aviation Industry Is Going Crazy
From Zurich to Australia with a new luxury private jet
In addition, faster and more spectacular. Canadian aircraft manufacturer Bombardier presents the Global 8000. From 2025, the wealthy will be able to fly from Zurich to Australia by private jet.
Fighting climate change and flying – two things definitely aren’t green right now. The aviation industry looks forward to innovative technologies such as hydrogen or electric aircraft. But they are probably at least a decade away. So the world is CO at this time. is discussing2– Duties for passengers.
Canadian aircraft maker Bombardier, on the other hand, has stuck to its core business: private jets that aim to enable some people to travel very long distances. Bombardier unveils its new luxury jet at the Abbes business jet trade fair in Geneva: The Bombardier Global 8000 offers space for 8 to 19 people and is said to be capable of a range of up to 14,800 kilometres.
No other private jet has a greater range than this. Direct flights from Zurich to the Australian metropolis of Perth are also possible with the Global 8000.
almost as fast as the concorde
Bombardier already has the Global 5500, 6500 and 7500 in its portfolio. The latest version beats the competition not only in terms of range but also in terms of speed. Officially, the Global 8000 reaches a speed of 1160 km / h. However, the sound barrier has already been broken on test flights – with a top speed of 1253 km/h.
For comparison: commercial passenger flights typically fly at speeds of 800 to 850 km/h in the air. Thus the Global 8000 would be the fastest airliner since the end of the French Concorde.
Canadians also don’t budge when it comes to comfort. The private jet will have three different suites. In addition, there is a special lighting system designed to combat jet lag among wealthy travelers. Like the Global 7500, the latest version is about 34 meters tall. Owners of existing models should be able to retrofit their aircraft.
The Global 8000 should hit the market in early 2025. Eventually, the more environmentally friendly SAF fuel, which Swiss, for example, also uses in some cases, will reduce the ecological footprint somewhat. However, CO2Multiply the per capita footprint on such travel previously made on commercial passenger aircraft with stopovers in the Middle East or Asia. (No)
