The Bombardier Global 5000 is a derivative of the Global Express.  The Global 5000 was designed to fill the gap between the Challenger 604 and the Global Express.   The Global 5000 uses the same cabin cross-section as the Global Express but is over 5 feet shorter.  The Global 5000 also carries less fuel resulting in a 1,200nm reduction in range versus the Global Express.   Bombardier began deliveries of the Global 5000 in 2004 and the fleet is nearing 150 aircraft.  Current corporate operators include General Electric and Limited Brands.

Global 5000 Buying Guide

The Global 5000 is available new through Bombardier or pre-owned on the open market.  A number of options are available to include safety enhancements like heads-up display (HUD) and enhanced visions system (EVS).   Cabin options are also plentiful to include cabin layout, internet access, and cabin entertainment systems.  For aircraft nearing 10 years of age, careful consideration should be given to the “8C” inspection which can be costly and timely.   For those with pending inspections or overhauls, an optional maintenance service plan (Bombardier Smart Parts) will mitigate some cost and also smooth future cashflows.  Engine maintenance plans for the engines (Rolls Royce Corporate Care) are also available.
