Bombardier Constructs Flight Test Vehicle For Global 7000/8000

Bombardier Aerospace’s Global 7000/8000 programme continues to progress with production and assembly for major structures in the first Flight Test Vehicle (FTV1) underway. Rear fuselage and cockpit assemblies for the aircraft are constructed at Bombardier’s Querétaro, Mexico plant and also the company’s St-Laurent, Canada site. Centre fuselages for the aircraft are assembled at Aerolia’s factory in Méaulte, France while the wings are provided by Triumph’s Red Oak, Texas site. The Global 7000 is expected to enter service in 2016, and the 8000 the following year.
