Great news for the Global 7500...

Global 7500 Sets Bizjet Range Record...

Bombardier’s new Global 7500 this week achieved what the manufacturer is billing as the world’s longest flight by a purpose-built business jet. The aircraft logged 8,152 nm after taking off from Singapore at 7:12 a.m. local time on March 4 and landing in Tucson, Arizona, at 8:19 a.m.—setting a speed record for this sector in the process.

The aircraft landed with 4,300 pounds of fuel, falling well within NBAA requirements with nearly 90 additional minutes of flight time possible.

The Global 7500 entered service on December 20, 2018. Designed for long intercontinental flights, it boasts the industry’s largest business jet cabin and a maximum speed of Mach 0.925. This week’s flight exceeded the aircraft’s advertised range of 7,700 nm.

“The Global 7500 was built to break all the records,” commented Bombardier Business Aircraft president David Coleal. “It achieved the industry’s longest mission ever in business aviation after only two months in service. We’ve demonstrated its unequaled long-range and high-speed capabilities, but also its ability to break records confidently with healthy fuel reserves remaining, once again, confirming its unsurpassed performance to customers.”

Curious to know about the other details.

My estimates:
16h07 flight with 506 KT average ground speed. Suppose a 20 KT tail wind that could have been achieved with M.84/85 cruise.

How’s that a good news?

I can’t imagine any pilot happy to spend that much time in a pressurized aluminium tube.

As long as you can still sleep on the floor next to the toilet instead of the non, lie flat crewrest seat all will be good

Well, first he said good news for the aircraft, not the pilot.

Then, fly 15 hours, spend 10 days on a beach, fly back...

And you can always chose a job on a smaller aircraft, Citation or other, and fly 2 hours 6 times a day ;-)

My understanding is the crew-rest seat is much improved - proper lie flat!

You clearly haven't been near one have you?

Not sure how you can jump to that conclusion. But I can infer that your understanding of sarcasm is limited and the fact that the 7500 is a stretch version of the 6000 with its less than crew friendly rest arrangement is well documented, hence the sarcastic comment 🤦🤦🤦

You have also no doubt seen all the possible layouts of the galley in the 7500, in your infinite knowledge, and think that a bench seat with 5 crew on a 16 hour flight is a great idea.
