Testing conducted over the 500 flight hours has demonstrated the capability of the aircraft's propulsion, avionics, electrical and mechanical systems.
Bombardier Business Aircraft is using an aluminum-lithium allow for the fuselages of its new Global 7000, as well as its Global 8000 sibling. The material has shown the ability to reduce weight by as much as 10 percent versus composites on single-aisle transport aircraft. (Photo: Bombardier Business Aircraft)
