air.one – 2018 Large Jet of the Year
The competition is fierce at the highest echelon of business aviation with Bombardier, Embraer, Dassault and Gulfstream fighting it out for exquisite large cabin, long-range aircraft. The elite few who seek the ultimate in luxury, comfort and experience with no ocean too wide, the field is reduced to two primary contenders, the Gulfstream G650ER and the Bombardier Global 7500.
With Bombardier achieving certification of the Global 7500 in 2018 setting a new standard in range of 7700nm (14,260km / 8861m), it was an immediate front runner in the inaugural air.one aircraft of the year prize in the large jet category.
