The Global Express is one of another class of ultra long extend corporate flies, and goes up against the Gulfstream V, Boeing 737 BBJ and Airbus A319cj (all depicted independently).

Intended to fly long separations at rapid, the Global Express' extent is such that it can fly between any two focuses on the globe and need stand out refueling stop, while it can fly persistent between intercontinental ends, for example, Sydney/Los Angeles, New York/Tokyo and Taipei/Chicago.

Bombardier's Canadair division advertised advancement of the Global Express in October 1991 at the yearly NBAA gathering in the USA. Formally dispatched on December 20 1993, it flew surprisingly on October 13 1996, with Canadian accreditation honored on July 31 1998 and US certificate following in November that year. First and foremost client conveyances are anticipated first quarter of 1999.

The Global Express imparts the Canadair Regional Jet's fuselage cross area and is comparable long, yet notwithstanding the size likenesses the two flying machine are altogether different because of the way of their parts. The Global Express gimmicks a progressed all new supercritical wing with a 35â° range and winglets, in addition to another Ttail. The motors are BMW Rollsroyce BR-710s with FADEC. The progressed flightdeck characteristics a six screen Honeywell Primus 2000 XP EFIS suite and is offered with nonobligatory heads-up presentations.

Three Bombardier divisions are included with the Global Express - Canadair is the Global Express' configuration pioneer and produces the nose; Shorts is in charge of the outline and assembling of the motor nacelles, level stabilizer and forward fuselage; and de Havilland at Downsview is in charge of last gathering and fabricates the back fuselage and vertical tail. Moreover, Japan's Mitsubishi Heavy Industries constructs the wing and focus fuselage segments in Nagoya.
