When Bombardier Aerospace announced the Global 6000 at the NBAA convention in 2003, it was as a major upgrade of its Global ExpressXRS. Today, the Canadian OEM describes it as “the most accomplished and luxurious business jet ever brought to market.” While all the electronic toys are nice, even necessary, in an airplane with a range of more than 6,000 nm at Mach 0.85, cabin comfort is equally necessary. Start with a 2,140-cu-ft cabin and 335-sq-ft of floor area in a space 48 feet 4 inches long, 8 feet 2 inches wide and a spacious 6 feet 3 inches of headroom. In the cabin are three compartments, starting with a baseline layout that includes an enclosed aft stateroom, a pocket door divider and aft lavatory, a mid-cabin conference grouping and dedicated forward section that includes a second lavatory, large galley and crew-rest area. The lavatory toilets forward and aft are connected and both are vacuum flushing. The galley position is forward and it is well-equipped with convection and microwave ovens, a Nespresso coffee-maker, hot- and cold-water sink and a refrigerated storage space that gets to 39-deg F within 30 minutes of power-up and maintains that temperature until shut-down. Options include an induction oven and a regular ( coffee-maker as a replacement for, or in addition to, the Nespresso. Adding further to the comfort is a standard side-facing divan in the aft stateroom area, 80 inches long and 40 inches wide. An optional divan on the opposite side of the compartment will complement it to form a single, large double bed.
