Global 6000 Overview (2012 – present)

Overview including differentiating features from other aircraft in its category

The Global 6000 is the fourth and latest business jet aircraft model built by Bombardier to compete in the new ultra-long range large-cabin market. The Global 6000 has a large spacious cabin in excess of 2,000 cubic feet and can travel non-stop over 6,100 nm. The ultra-long range market is defined as a new group of large cabin business jets that can fly 5,000 nm or greater distance. Today the ultra-long-range large cabin business jet market has exceeded 1,100 aircraft in operation.

As of July 2013, the Global 6000 market is comprised of 88% new versus 12% pre-owned. The percentage for sale is 4.9% with 100% under an exclusive broker agreement.

Brief History

The Global 6000 traces its roots to the Global Express XRS which was the third ultra long-range large-cabin business jet produced. The Global 6000 started delivering to customers in 2012. There are currently 61 Global 6000 aircraft in operation around the world. Two new aircraft will follow the Global 6000. They are the Global 7000 and Global 8000 ultra-long-range large cabin business jets.

Worldwide Appeal

North America and Europe account for the majority (57%) of the 61 Global 6000 aircraft in operation by continent. Also, only 10% of the 61 Global 5000 in operation today are in fleet ownership with the largest fleet operator (Vista Jet) having 6 aircraft. Interestingly, 7% of the Global 6000 are leased.




The Global 6000 is powered by two Rolls-Royce BR700-710A2-20 engines, each offering 14,750 pounds of thrust. The Global 6000 uses 460 gallons per hour (GPH). The range of the Global 6000 is 6,163 nm operating under NBAA rules using IRF 8 passengers with available fuel. The range of the Global 6000 is less than the Global XRS by 142 nm.
