Radio CNN Reportedly Bombardier company is making Global 8000 into “plane It will also be the first commercial supersonic aircraft to use sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), an eco-friendly fuel. environment.
According to a statement from Bombardier, the Global 8000 is expected to enter service in 2025 with a maximum capacity of 19 passengers, a range of 14,800 km and a fastest speed of Mach 0.94 (1,151 km/h).
The Global 8000 test flight was carried out nearly a year after the Global 7500 aircraft model, which reached a maximum speed of Mach 1,015 (1,243 km/h), was tested in May 2021. The speed of sound in air is about 1,236 km/h.

According to the news agency Reuters, when put into operation in 2025, Global 8000 is expected to compete with Gulfstream G700 aircraft of General Dynamics (USA) and Falcon 10X aircraft of Dassault Aviation (France). Many people call the Global 8000 the long-range version of the Global 7500.
Éric Martel, President and CEO of Bombardier, said: “The Global 8000 takes advantage of the outstanding features of the Global 7500, delivering a leading vehicle of a new era.”
The Global 8000 will have a list price of $78 million, slightly higher than Bombardier’s flagship Global 7500, which has a list price of $75 million.

It can be said that the Global 8000 is one of many efforts by the world aviation industry to develop high-speed passenger aircraft in the past two decades, after the commercial supersonic Concorde was discontinued.
In 2021, United Airlines announced that it will open supersonic routes at the earliest from 2029, after reaching an agreement to buy 15 supersonic aircraft.
Meanwhile, Colorado-based Boom Supersonic manufacturer has tested on the ground with its first supersonic aircraft model that can fly at Mach 2.2. The aircraft is designed to carry 65-88 people with the goal of entering service in 500 transoceanic routes.
Unfortunately, the Florida-based aviation startup Aerion has gone bankrupt, after revealing its plans to produce the Aerion AS3 commercial jet with a speed of Mach 4+ (4,900+ km/h) on Wednesday. year 2021.
